Thankfully we missed the worst of Katrina. It was only a category 1 storm when it hit us and it’s now far away from us. After it left south Florida, it strengthened to category 5 and it’s now heading towards New Orleans. This is going to be really bad. Hurricane Andrew was a category 5 storm, but it was a lot smaller than Katrina so it only destroyed a limited area. Katrina is about 3 times as wide and will cause more damage when it hits. It can also pick up more strength before it hits.
For anyone in New Orleans, GET OUT NOW!
