The alarm clock is set to go off in an hour. I can’t sleep. I’ve gotten a few hours of rest, no more.
Hurricane Katrina continues to be my concern. While I tossed and turned, Katrina was turning it up a notch.
Only a tiny portion of Hurricane Katrina is visible on radar. It’s too far from shore – over 300 miles from New Orleans. The satellite image is very impressive with a clearly visible eye. That’s a change from earlier.
The most surprising part of the coverage is the lack of traffic showing up on the live cameras. It’s late at night. At this point people are probably waiting until daylight.
WWL is going to learn this kind of coverage is a marathon, not a sprint. They’ll need to keep enough strength and staff to go another few days wall-to-wall.
