    New Orleans is fuct, CU.
    Category 5, with winds up to 175 MPH. There has only been 3 other Category 5's to hit the US.

    And depending on where in New Orleans you live you are already 5-10 feet below sea level. It's supposed to be the worst one they have had in the past 40 years.

    Yeah, and the cost of Diesel to run the generators, ontop of the fact that the electric grid will knocked out and below water, means that it will take potentially over a month to pump it back out.

    And 8 key offshores are down there too, and 25 offshores were evacuated yesterday and today.

    Wonder what gas will hit in a few weeks... Maybe $3.50 for 87 octane? We're closing in on $3/gal. for 87 octane here in the Chicago suburbs already.

    My neighborhood was wiped out by a tornado last week, one of my neighbors died and a bunch of my friends houses were leveled, it was insane.

    That sucks that this is happening to a cool place like New Orleans.

    Too bad Los Angeles doesn't get Category 5 hurricanes. The U.S. could use a good enema.

    Los Angeles isn't a city set BELOW sea level... but, i suppose it might be nice to drown some people out of our state... problem is... more people keep coming every year, so it doesn't matter.
