Hurricane Blogging

Via Instapundit, WDSU is live-blogging the hurricane.  They have video coverage too of the damage (minor but getting worse) to the Superdome.

Thinking of Bobby, Harold, Jennifer, Conner, Jean and pals in Louisana.

9:30 AM CST:  Reports of some flooding (9th Ward),  fires, and building damage...and this is less than expected because the hurricane turned away from New Orleans at the last minute.  There are a few reports that the French Quarter has some flooding, too.

Oil commodities' prices are rising.  Part due to damage that will be done to the largest oil economy in the USA...

And, after the hundreds of millions we poured into the tsunami relief, I wonder where the world will be on this (not really wondering, just being optimistic).
