Katrina Update

KATRINA UPDATE….New Orleans isn’t out of the woods yet, but apparently Katrina changed course during the night and New Orleans got hit by the northwest front of the hurricane instead of the northeast front. The winds slowed down a bit too. The damage appears to be bad, but not as catastrophic as it could have been, thank God.
