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.
 
i live in NO, but i go to school in baton rouge, and my parents are comming to my apartment and getting the hell out... looks like my house is going to be gone, i live about 100 yards from the levee/river :/
 
hmm. here in Cali it's sunny and about 80 degrees, actually i am going to the beach in a while :p Just thought id let everyone know, for all the people that say cali sucks. have fun in the wind and rain
 
ouch man... ouch. but yea, i never have had to worry about the wind taking my house... or the rain... just the earthquakes... and honestly, they're not as bad as everyone thinks.

hope everything turns out ok for ya.
 
eh... if it continues the news stations down here say new orleans will be uninhabitable for like 6 months or something because all the plant's chemicals, animals, possibly bodies, etc etc...
 
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.

i don't think you're very safe in batton rouge either man...

i'd be driving right now... north and west... this shit is no joke. 175 mph? holy fuck!
 
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.
