We are completely stunned by the news about category 5 Hurricane Katrina barreling down on the Gulf Coast and New Orleans.
Best wishes to the people of New Orleans who are currently evacuating or seeking shelter inside the city.
The National Weather Service has issued a chilling advisory about the possible tragedy this hurricane may wreak, predicting that the entire area may become uninhabitable for “weeks, perhaps longer.”
Wikipedia has excellent information as well as NOLA.com.
