Screw Houston, Galveston is fukked!

She is winding up!

TAMUCC for the unwashed masses.

If it's a Cat 4 or 5, we're in the area that is evacuated. Galveston has already stated that NO ONE will be forced to leave, but if they don't, they're on their own. Thank God for the inlaw's ranch.

Make sure you start the gas hoarding process too..if this thing starts messing with the offshore oil rigs, you can bet prices and availability will go.

When is that expected to hit Houston?
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 5:22:31 PM EDT
Houston's far enough in that it hold up pretty good against hurricanes. Alicia back in the 80s was fun though...

If a Cat 4 hits Houston dead on what kind of flooding do you expect?

Galveston?

It most likely wouldnt still be a Cat 4 by the time it got to Houston...or at least the winds reaching to Houston wouldnt be that high

Yesterday the center of the landfall area was along the Tex/Mex border. This morning it was around Corpus. Now it is Freeport. I work in Galveston and there has already been a lot of folks at the Home Depot buying plywood and other stuff. This could be bad, but I don't think it is another Katrina coming. I hope not, anyway.

Shit. I'm going to South Padre this weekend for a week. Fuck. Shit. Fuckshit.

Oh Lord, please have Rita dance a tango over Cuba. Thank you, Amen.

On a related note, Rush had a picture of Fidel Castro on Cuban TV while his head meteorologist pointed with a stick at a map taped to a wall. High tech communist weather service, eh?

Kemah, Seabrook, Clear Lake, Webster and Pearland are all at risk in a Cat 4 or 5.

Galveston would sustain heavy damage-again.

South Padre should be fine, the hurricane will move on a northerly track.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 6:16:09 PM EDT
Ya see, Bush knows we are on to his hurricane machine plot, so in order to cover his tracks he HAS to hit Texas. That's the last place anyone would suspect him to hit with it, therefore logically that is exactly where he must strike. Now noone will believe the truth about the hurricane machine.

Stay over Cuba a bit longer, then swoop down and hit Mexico.
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 1:10:48 PM EDT
yeah, this place floods pretty bad.

during Tropical Storm Allison in 2001, I set in front of my dorms/apts and watched cars float down the freeway. You would think this city had gotten their shit together.

7 of the 8 computers are in agreement within 200 miles of each other, they are calling a Texas landfall. The only question now is how much of a Northward jog will this storm take when it gets into the western Gulf. Texas' number is up. I just hope it does'nt come ashore as a Cat.4 or greater. I am also wondering about the oil rigs, how will this affect the gas prices if more of them are damaged after this storm?

that would be a bad setback. I think 1/3 of the supply would be cut.

I live just north of 2pm Saturday on the track map 110miles from Galveston. Cat4 landfall, depending on forward speed, will put us likely in strong tropical storm to Cat1 winds atleast. Texas A&M home game vs Texas State has been moved to Thursday night in College Station from saturday. That way BCS can concetrate on handling the evacs from the coast over the weekend. BCS is designated area for evacs from Brazoria County for people needing a place to flee.

Don't mean they can't be wrong. Anything is possible. It's difficult to actually predict what nature will do.

I live in Corpus Christi and am getting ready. My model shows a hit in North of Galveston. We just got a Norther today. We have never taken a hit after a Norther.

Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets.
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 3:48:11 PM EDT
The track they showed on the news just a little while ago shows it rolling right through DFW late Saturday/early Sunday. I imagine if it makes landfall as a Cat 4 we will be seeing a Cat 1 or strong tropical storm up here still.

Well, they just closed our school district down with a whole bunch of other ones through Friday. Filled the Jeeps up tonight and the lines were 2-3 deep at every pump.

Reports of gas stations already running out of gas....watch the prices go nuts even with laws in place to prevent it.

(AP) Newsflash:
Sept. 20, 2005

NASA's Space Center Houston is readying their surplus Saturn V rocket for it's final mission. It will be loaded with tannerite in a last ditch attempt to divert Hurricane Rita to Mexico. Mission specialists are confident that the payload will be delivered on schedule. Mission countdown is slated to begin Friday at 8am CST.

Actually he is finishing what he started in NO. He missed some of the blacks so he is sending it to Houston to finish them, becasue Bush hates black people(i heard it on TV so it MUST be true)

TRG



Not to pick..but the air temp does'nt affect it as much as the water temp and the type of air that is introduced. If the dry air mass sitting over Texas gets into her before landfall it will weaken Rita.

She now has a visible eye..here she goes!
