ENV: New Orleans about to get hammered

Okay pardon me for being really dumb, but here's the New Orleans forecast straight from the website of the National Weather Service for tonight. Then glance at the current radar images below and left. Can anyone say Category 5?

"Tonight: Occasional rain. Low near 77. Windy, with a north wind 35 to 40
mph increasing to between 50 and 55 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%.

Monday: Occasional rain. High near 79. Windy, with a north wind 55 to 60
mph decreasing to between 35 and 40 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%."


Here's the view you should be watching:

This from Chris Fisher over at The Scarlet Left:

"I was watching the weather before hitting publish. Hit central pressure is now
902mb (26.64in.) making her the fourth most intense hurricane ever in the
Atlantic."


If i were there i'd be skedaddling . . .


I love hurricanes, i hate flooding. If one begets the other, then i'm outta there.
