Katrina update 4
It looks like Katrina's going to make landfall as a category 5 hurricane. The Weather Channel says this is unprecedented. As I recall from reports, only three category 5 hurricanes have made landfall in the US (in recorded history)--Andrew, Camille, and an unnamed storm. We got more rain from rain bands today. Lots of standing water around the countryside, but it's not bad here. Even the local swamps aren't that high here. And there are two tropical waves coming off Africa; one is already TD13 and could become Lee.
