Earth in Upheaval

By Remy Benoit

From Weather Underground Tropical Storm Five Day Forecast Map.

This is a dangerous storm at 884 milibars with sustained winds at 175, gusts 215.

Take a lesson from what happened here; if you are in a place seriously threatened do not hesitate to leave. Keep in mind those who stay, and again learn, after Katrina there was little cash available, no gas, stores emptied of provisions. Just because your home survived other storms, does not mean it will survive others.

I was in Waveland, Mississippi just a few weeks before Katrina. It was a pretty place. This is Waveland, after Katrina and her tidal surge. Storm Damage Photos, Waveland, MS A Personal View - David and Kimberly King. I do not mean to be alarmist. What I am saying, is use your head and do whatever needs doing if you are in the path of Wilma.

Do what needs to be done now. Katrina hit the end of August; it is the middle of October now and things are far from normal.
