To all our members in Louisiana

I wish you the very best and hope you get through Hurricane Katrina safe and with as little destruction as possible. Katrina only came through Florida as a Hurricane 1 and caused problems. Louisiana and the Gulf coast is in our thoughts and prayers.


NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (CNN) -- New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin declared a state of emergency on Sunday and ordered a mandatory evacuation of the city as Hurricane Katrina churned toward the city with maximum sustained winds of nearly 175 mph.

Yes. Everyone on the Gulf Coast use extreme caution. This one reminds me of Camille. God's speed to all of you in harm's way.

If you are still anywheres whthin 150 miles of this hurricane, leave now. This could be one of the most catastrophic events in this countries history. We are looking at a worst case senario of 40 to 60 thousand casualties, with billions of dollars worth of damage, not to mention what it will do to gas prices. Money can buy anything except a human life. No time for heroics now. If you can, get out. Listen to the Judge. God's speed to all of you.

This could be one of the worst natural disasters ever

New Orleans is below sea level which will increase the devastation as their levees stand about 15 feet and the waves from this storm are estimated to be 20 feet or higher meaning if it is a direct hit, downtown may be under water.

I wish all the people down there nothing but the best and let's hope the devastation and casualties are limited.

God Bless all the people there and stay safe

They are saying that the French Qtr will be under 20 feet of water. And with the levee's in place, it won't be able to go back to sea. The levee's are going to keep all the water in.

Hard to watch my home be blown away with my fam still there, they have already been through a few this season in the Gulf! My parents are about 500 yards of the east shore of Mobile Bay! Luckily the huge bluffs that border the Bay keep the storm surge out! But Mobile like New Orleans will be under water!

I went through Hurricane Andrew and will never ever forget that night and what I saw in the coming days after.

Katrina is bigger and stronger and this area can not handle this kind of storm.

I am not sure we have ever seen anything that will compare to what is going to happen in the near future.

I hope the majority were able to get out.

This is just sickening and I feel for anyone there or who has family there!

Sincere good luck to everyone in it's path!

Very bad storm. My prayers go out to everyone in the storm's path.

It's already ripped off part of the roof to the Superdome.

Thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by Katrina. Having just completed repairs on my house from last hurricane season in Florida, I can empathize, to a very small degree with those in New Orleans, Mobile, Shrevesport, Gulfport, and other coastal cities. Coming home to ¾ of a roof was bad enough, I simply can not imagine what it would be like to see a lake where my house used to be.
