Storm Update

*Cross-Posted at The Wild Wild Left*

So far so good here in Lafayette, LA. We are watching the eye of the storm on television move over Morgan City, up the Hwy. 90 corridor on its way here. Still safe, still have electricity. Winds are gusting to around 40mph now, so things are deteriorating outside, and I expect them to continue to do so as the eye gets closer. The various news outlets are reporting that the Industrial Canal in New Orleans (that was breached in Katrina and devestated the Ninth Ward) has overtopped its levees and is causing some flooding. No word on the severity.

I will try to keep posting as long as possible, but for now we are fine. Keep us in your thoughts.
