Katrina has made landfall just east of New Orleans. There's hope that it won't be the apocalyptic catastrophe it had (and still has) the potential to be - indeed, damage estimates are dropping - but it's still very early.
The last storm of this magnitude to hit the Gulf Coast was Camille in 1969. Here's a report about Camille on the 30-year anniversary of that storm. Found via Chris Mooney and Making Light, which has a number of other useful links as well.Posted by Charles Kuffner on August 29, 2005 to Hurricane Katrina | TrackBack
