Here's a good interview. It seems that they had a very good idea it was going to stall, based on upper level winds which are far more predictable than lower ones. So yeah, if there was a plan to evacuate flood prone areas they could at least have gotten the most at risk out.

{{{Oh that should be ok Halfy- its mainly black people live there. If the last time New Orleans got hammered by a massive storm is any guide we should know by now no one really cares in America when its happening to black people! Maybe Trump can send some white supremacists down to hold a party instead. }}}

Actually looking at satellite and radar together, it looks like the wet spiral arm is passing over now, then the direct rainfall on New Orleans should be over. Will still have river surge to contend with from inland rains....

There are thoughtful souls like those in the video, and with the low death count of humans so far they may have time to get the animals out, if they complain loud enough!  (note how many of these kind souls appear to be the type Trump is trying to keep out or incarcerate. Mad )

Came across this photo on reddit,



This was uploaded yesterday, about 7-8 foot below those waves lies the Interstate 10 near the town of Winnie, Texas...take away the sign and you might think it's the ocean.

Apparently that photograph was taken more than 15 miles inland. Shocked

I grew up in Houston. I need to find a map of flood water depths to mull over my old stomping grounds.

So with Irmageddon having arrived in the Caribbean, is this looking like the worst Atlantic hurricane season since 2005? All I really have to go on is how much hurricane-related devastation I can recall hearing about in any given year, which isn't a great metric.

It's really not my area of expertise.  Anyone can look this stuff up as well as I can, but I think you are right to zero in on damages, which are primarily to do with hurricane track and only secondarily to do with actual hurricane intensity.  Most don't make landfall, as seen by this map of hurricane tracks, where color denotes intensity. So a "bad hurricane season" may be pure chance of where or if they make landfall as opposed to whether they are actually stronger or not.

If Mars a Lago is wiped off the earth it would save us more in secret service costs than it would to rebuild it. Evil or Very Mad

Az: I've never seen anything like that before! Seems the low pressure of the Hurricane created such a swell below the storm that it dropped sea levels significantly around it. I would *never* have believed it if not for that video. Just WOW.
