Hurricane Katrina

My thoughts and prayers to everyone in the affected areas as Katrina has made landfall.
Hurricane Katrina has made landfall between Grand Isle, Louisiana, and the mouth of the Mississippi River, the National Hurricane Center reports. Although New Orleans was braced for a direct hit, experts suggest that coastal Mississippi may bear the brunt of the storm. At 7:10 a.m. ET, Katrina had maximum sustained winds of 140 mph. [CNN]

Hot topics attract spam, I suppose.

I just noticed that you were spammed on both of your cross posts. Those spambots are loving you today.

We have family down in Grand Isle. I am certain that they were able to evacuate, but we have not heard from them yet. We are hoping that everyone is alright. Property can always be replaced, but people can't.

Thanks for linking to the reporter's log at the BBC. I am going to forward that on to my husband. I am sure that he will be interested. :)

I think it was the Technorati tags. The hurricane was the number one search. Ah well.
