Plus the learning curve that Katrina offered as a result. Much better qualified folks running the show at the local and state level currently as compared to Katrina. Just my 2 cents.

I agree, but lets not pat anyone on the back, we have people suffering, houses flooded, levees topped, etc.. Clearly we have a BIG improvement in Mitch Landrieu and Bobby Jindal, over Ray Nagin and Kathleen Blanco, who never spoke or coordinated. However I will agree if it things turn around quickly ole Barry will be there with his teleprompter telling us all how he saved every one.

Right now I hope they get everyone to safety!

Hurricane Isaac topics only, please. No one wants me to get started on a political discussion. Believe me.

HURRICANE ISAAC
Well, it is still raining lightly here west of COC. Only got a about 2" in the bucket today. Although a lot more fell. Just can't get it to fall in the gauge when you are getting 30-40mph sustained winds.

I am currently rendering some video footage I shot today from my side of the storm. Got to experience a 50+MPH gust while driving thru an outer rain band. It scared the crap out of me, nearly ran off the road.

Not much damage her, just the usual tree limbs and leaf debris. There is a lot of sugar cane that got damaged from the constant rain and wind.

And I have to report back to work tomorrow...

Finally able to checkin from my iPhone. We have no electricity or Internet but some have had these restored(Thibodaux) so we're hoping our turn is coming soon.
The gusts last night were insane. I was in 1st grade for Hilda in 1964 ( first storm I remember) and I do not ever remember gusts like we experienced last night, including Gustav in Baton Rouge.
Thank God we have not had any water or wind damage and neither has anyone we know. Our prayers are with those in Braithwaite and other areas affected by Isaac. Y'all take care.

Winds have picked up here in Lake Charles tonight, 28 or so gust to 48-50+ according to my gauges... Wonder if it's the typical thing that happens when a tropical storm weakens, the stronger winds near the core spreading rapidly?

Quote:TROPICAL STORM ISAAC DISCUSSION NUMBER 37
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL092012
400 AM CDT THU AUG 30 2012

ISAAC IS SLOWLY WEAKENING AS MORE OF ITS LARGE CIRCULATION MOVES
OVER LAND. BASED ON THE LATEST SURFACE WIND OBSERVATIONS NEAR THE
NORTHERN GULF COAST...THE MAXIMUM WINDS HAVE DIMINISHED TO NEAR 40
KT. THESE WINDS ARE OCCURRING PRIMARILY OVER WATER OR ALONG THE
COASTLINE. CONTINUED GRADUAL WEAKENING IS EXPECTED...AND ISAAC IS
LIKELY TO BECOME A TROPICAL DEPRESSION BY THIS EVENING. THE
OFFICIAL INTENSITY FORECAST IS SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS ONE...AND IS
MORE OR LESS IN AGREEMENT WITH THE STATISTICAL-DYNAMICAL GUIDANCE.

CENTER FIXES USING SURFACE SYNOPTIC DATA AND NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR IMAGERY INDICATE THAT ISAAC IS MOVING
NORTHWESTWARD AT A SLIGHTLY FASTER PACE...325/7. THE TRACK
FORECAST AND PROGNOSTIC REASONING REMAIN ESSENTIALLY UNCHANGED.
OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS...THE PRIMARY STEERING MECHANISM SHOULD
BE THE FLOW BETWEEN THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES AND A RIDGE OVER
THE SOUTHEASTERN UNITED STATES. AS A RESULT THE CYCLONE IS
EXPECTED TO TURN NORTHWARD...NORTHEASTWARD...AND EASTWARD DURING
THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE OFFICIAL TRACK FORECAST IS VERY CLOSE TO
THE PREVIOUS ONE...AND ALSO CLOSE TO THE LATEST DYNAMICAL MODEL
CONSENSUS.

HEAVY RAINFALL AND A SIGNIFICANT FLOOD THREAT ARE EXPECTED TO SPREAD
INLAND ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL UNITED STATES DURING THE NEXT
SEVERAL DAYS. WATER LEVELS ALONG THE NORTHERN GULF COAST WILL
REMAIN ELEVATED THROUGH AT LEAST THIS MORNING. TORNADOES REMAIN A
THREAT AS WELL FROM THIS SYSTEM TODAY.

FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

INIT 30/0900Z 30.9N 91.6W 40 KT 45 MPH
12H 30/1800Z 31.9N 92.3W 35 KT 40 MPH...INLAND
24H 31/0600Z 33.8N 93.2W 30 KT 35 MPH...INLAND
36H 31/1800Z 36.0N 93.5W 25 KT 30 MPH...INLAND
48H 01/0600Z 38.0N 93.0W 20 KT 25 MPH...POST-TROP/REMNT LOW
72H 02/0600Z 39.5N 90.0W 15 KT 15 MPH...POST-TROP/REMNT LOW
96H 03/0600Z 40.0N 86.5W 15 KT 15 MPH...POST-TROP/REMNT LOW
120H 04/0600Z 40.5N 82.0W 15 KT 15 MPH...POST-TROP/REMNT LOW
