Rita's Path

I think Rita’s path will track eastward than the NHC is forecasting. With the upper level high pressure system moving eastward and will apparently split, the storm will follow. See the computer models below. This system will produce torrential rains and flooding, to include tornados.

We are getting the first rain-bands in Slidell right now. I will make a decision to leave within the next six hours. The rooms are already reserved.

Governor Blanco has not issued an evacuation order as of this post. This may prove to be another very bad decision.

The storm has been downgraded to Cat. 4 with sustained winds of 150 mph. This is certainly good news, but make no mistake: This is a very bad situation. I’ll keep posting as long as I can.
