Katrina grew into a Category 5 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale by 7:05 a.m. EDT (1105 GMT), with winds of 160 mph.

We are still just getting rain from Katrina in Florida. Last year's hurricane season sucked for me. No water & power for 5 days during Francis. TV and Computer got zapped during Charlie.

175mph winds at 11:30am EDT...they better hope she does an eyewall replacement as she approaches the shore...but will be devastating nonetheless. It's very hard for a system to maintain this type of strength, but this is truly amazing to see...a perfectly shaped hurricane if there ever was one. And those people that stay...if they survive...will be scared as they've never been before. I experienced Hugo back in 1989, and I was so scared I started to pray...and I'm Agnostic!

I hate when I see people stay. Especially ones in badly structured homes. I live in a block home and I still would board up and leave if they said I was in danger. I remember Hugo. I worked for a cell phone company during Andrew and it was horrible. I remember being in an assembly line outside our building programming phones for the Red Cross. I didn't go down there but a friend of mine did that works for OUC (Orlando Utilities) and he said the worst thing besides the obvious devastation was the smells.

The very sad thing is that New Orleans is way too big of a city to completely evacuate, there simply isn't enough resources to. They are saying now that some people will simply have to be left behind to weather the storm...a chilling thought...as the city could be under 25 feet of water when the hurricane hits.

This is true...I heard on CNN and Fox that there are like 10,000 people in NOLA that don't even own cars and all the rentals gone! The levee system cannot withstand this. It's going to be bad. Perhaps it will wobble to the right, but that's bad news for Biloxi and Mobile...either way it's

I do feel bad but part of me doesn't. These storms come with the territory. Although it's more typical for a storm of this stature to be in the Pacific tropics instead of the Atlantic tropics. Which makes me wonder if again global warming is apart of a factor of this storm. I hope everyone evacuates or finds a good safe haven to survive and finally understands that we humans have little to no control over the weather. What control we have should be used to stop global warming to make sure things don't get out of hand. Once this planet starts a super warming trend that isn't directly apart of a ice age, it's going to be almost impossible to stop.

I guess if you are in a coastal town you would call it 'Katrina and the Waves'
(Don't worry, you'll be walking on sunshine when it's all died down)

The gulf of mexico* has always been warm. This comes from a person that lives in Louisiana. The last two weeks its been over 100 degrees. Global warming has little, if any influence on hurricanes. They just happen and they have formed over the last century. What the hell are you talking about? This is the 3rd major storm of the hurricane season, which is pretty normal. This hurricane is absolutely magnificent (from a meteorology standpoint). I would love to report from this, but I can't.

I've never said that the Atlantic has never been warm. 80 degrees...90 degrees...even near 100 degrees in shallow coastal waters is typical. When the temperature of the water in the ocean or gulf is the temperature of a Japanese bath water then there is definately a problem. You don't have to believe me on it though. The navy has numbers on the issue. I'm sure if you google it. You'll find something. Other than that the tropical season has been one of if not one of the livliest this year.

Good luck everyone!

On a related note, Sally's been watching the weather channel all morning just to watch Carl Parker
