Re: global warming/ Rita


Matagorda, Port Lavaca, Freeport are all pretty much due south of my area,  
which means we'd be in the direct path, or on the seriously immediate dirty  
side.   They haven't changed their trajectory much as to where Rita  will 
go....anywhere from Port Lavaca to Galveston.
Rita went from a Tropical storm to a Cat 4 in less than 24 hours, and is  
said to become a Cat 5 before landfall.  Not good, considering Katrina was  a 
weak Cat 4 and devastated La., Miss. Ala, and parts of Florida.  Doesn't  speak 
well for us being within 100 miles of the eye of the storm no matter where  it 
hits.  They said the storm could cover the entire state, thats how large  it 
is now.  So no place is safe, actually.  It's very overwhelming,  never having 
been through a hurricane at all, and not many have experienced one  of this 
magnatude, so hard to say what to prepare for.

NOAA has  not changed its predicted landfall [Port Lavaca-Port Comfort 
area] for the  last three or four advisories; winds are now [5 AM] at a 
sustained 120 MPH  and building--so it's going to be a monster when it 
hits, I'm  afraid.
