Good point. Either way I have a rule of thumb, don't move to a place where the dead people are put at a higher level than the streets.
PFFT!!! The locals are all partying in the parking lot.. no one watches the game but some tourists...
Hrm, I guess if the team is THAT bad, then you'd rather be in the parking lot.
This is what gonna hurt the rest of us in the aftermath of Katrina...
Or that the Levee's that are designed to keep the River and Lake at Bay will also trap the storm surge IN
They were talking about having to blow holes in the levee if they can't get the water out once the river/lake levels drop...
Oh man... they are saying that the 10k-12k people inside the SuperDorm are fighting, freaking out because the roof has a hole in it...
A Harvey hotel or apartment has collasped.. people feared trapped inside..
A levey has been breeched and 10-12 foot of water is flowing in...
We had to weather a hurricane back in the 80s in Houston. Our wind and rain was mild compared to to the coast. I cant imagine wind like that for 11 hours, but they werent "hurricane force" winds... Those winds are like a mild tornado arent they? For 11 hours? Sturdy Buildings will be destroyed. There will be some crazy footage of this crap I know it.
Get the F out guys.

Katrina's floodwaters inundating Gulf Coast
New Orleans pumps fail; Mississippi coast like 'hell on earth'
Monday, August 29, 2005; Posted: 11:39 a.m. EDT (15:39 GMT)
NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (CNN) -- Parts of New Orleans are flooded with up to six feet of water Monday after some of the pumps that protect the low-lying city failed under the onslaught from Hurricane Katrina, Mayor Ray Nagin said.
Nagin said the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans, on the east side of the city, was under five to six feet of rising water after three pumps failed.
WGNO reporter Susan Roesgen, who is with the mayor at the Hyatt hotel, said New Orleans police had received more than 100 calls about people in the area trapped on their roofs.
The National Weather Service reported the Industrial Canal, in the eastern part of the city, had breached a levee and three to eight feet of water could be expected.(See video of near whiteout conditions and debris-filled winds)
The weather service reported "total structural failure" in some parts of metropolitan New Orleans, where Katrina brought wind gusts of 120 mph. While it offered no details, it said it had received "many reports."
Katrina came ashore Monday morning in southeastern Louisiana as a Category 4 storm, with winds topping 140 mph.
At 11 a.m. ET, the National Weather Service said Katrina had degraded to a Category 3 storm with maximum sustained winds near 125 mph.
New Orleans was prepared for a catastrophic direct hit from the powerful storm. About a million people fled the area, and about 10,000 people who couldn't leave hunkered in the mammoth Louisiana Superdome.
The National Hurricane Center said that the western eye wall was passing over the city at about 10 a.m. ET. (Watch video update on Katrina's path)
While the counterclockwise spin of a hurricane usually leaves the worst damage on its eastern edge, CNN meteorologist Chad Myers cautioned that "there's not really an easy side of a Category 4 storm" on the Saffir-Simpson scale.
CNN's John Zarella said that the wind was howling through the buildings in downtown New Orleans, ripping off chunks of debris and causing whiteout conditions.
He said that water was rushing down the street and had risen up to the wheel wells of parked cars.
Earlier, reporter Ed Reams from affiliate WDSU told CNN that Katrina ripped away a large section of the Superdome's roof. (See video of conditions within the darkened Superdome)
"I can see daylight straight up from inside the Superdome," Reams reported.
National Guard troops moved people to the other side of the dome. Others were moving beneath the concrete-reinforced terrace level.
About 70 percent of New Orleans is below sea level and is protected from the Mississippi River by a series of levees. (Full story)
NHC deputy director Ed Rappaport told CNN that New Orleans could expect a storm surge of 15 to 20 feet.
That surge wouldn't top New Orleans' levees, but CNN's Myers noted that "there may be a 20-foot surge, but there may be a 20-foot wave on top of that."
Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco said it was too soon to feel any sense of relief.
"We don't know yet," she said. "We still have a long way to go throughout this day. We are watching. We are worried of course."
At 10 a.m. ET, the storm was centered about 30 miles east-southeast of New Orleans and 50 miles west-southwest of Biloxi, Mississippi. Hurricane force winds extended about 125 miles from the storm's center.
The storm was moving north at 15 mph.
The storm's eastern eye wall was approaching Biloxi and Gulfport, Mississippi.
Authorities in Gulfport told CNN that 10 feet of water cover downtown streets.
"There is intense damage," said CNN's Gary Tuchman from Gulfport. "We are watching the dismantling of a beautiful town."
"We are watching these building deteriorate and break down before our eyes," he said. "Because the water is so deep, boats are floating up the street. There is extensive damage here. This is essentially right now like hell on earth."
In Biloxi, CNN meteorologist Rob Marciano reported that wind gusts topping 100 mph were starting to pull the roofs off of nearby buildings. (Watch video report from Biloxi, Mississippi)
Hurricane warnings are posted from Morgan City, Louisiana, eastward to the Alabama-Florida state line, including New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain. This means winds of at least 74 mph are expected in the warning area within the next 24 hours.
A tropical storm warning and a hurricane watch are in effect from the Alabama-Florida state line eastward to Destin, Florida, and from west of Morgan City to Intracoastal City, Louisiana. A tropical storm warning is also in effect from Intracoastal City, Louisiana, west to Cameron, Louisiana, and from Destin, Florida, eastward to Indian Pass, Florida.
A tropical storm warning means tropical storm conditions, including winds of at least 39 mph, are expected within 24 hours. A hurricane watch means hurricane conditions are possible, usually within 36 hours.
Isolated tornadoes are also possible Monday across southern portions of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and the Florida Panhandle, forecasters said.
