Don't know for sure ~ They only said it was between the FQ and Lake Pontchrtrain. Also hearing reports of people scrambling onto their roofs because of flooding!

Steve Harrigan (FOX) is leaning into the winds and can't even talk...Shep Smith (FOX) is in the French Quarter where it's suppose to flood! It's only a matter of time folks!! #-o
This I would pay to see. They spend the whole day telling people they have to get out, this is the big one Elizabeth, you got to get yo' ass outta there, and what do they do.....they go there to tell people how bad it is. They shoulb be arrested for violating the curfew.

They are there for ratings and nothing else. I can't wait for the first yeild sign to pierce someone's spleen.

Dear Lord, just saw the new video from what used to be Gulfport...looks like an F5 tornado about 20 miles wide went through there. Houses just reduced to rubble, not even a wall standing.
