Still not much word from the Mississippi coast, but some reports that many homes are destroyed, even some of the homes that stood through Camille.

I'm glad the storm wasn't what was originally predicted.Still fucked up,but not as bad as it could have been.

See LEO's driving down Bourbon street on FNC now,so it looks like it was somewhat spared.

Earlier they said there was massive damage in MS, almost complete devastation in some areas

Any news sources listing what parts of the city+suburbs are flooded?

Damn, all of those trees with no leaves.

It is weird to see how calm it is now, knowing how violent it was just a few hours ago.

The worst of the weather is here now. I'm in Starkville (NE MS).

I'm pretty sure the only reason I still have power is because I am on the same grid as the Hospital across the street.

Wind is really strong and it's been raining non-stop since early this morning. The worst I have gotten is that my cable went out for an hour or so and the power went off for about 10 seconds at one point.

I went out earlier and at one intersection I smelled smoke then saw that a large tree had fallen on a power line and the power company was working on it. It looked like several large sections of the city had no power.

There are a lot of trees down and tops broken out of trees around the city... and I went out before the worst of it arrived.

Talked to my parents who live in Jackson (central MS) and they got some really strong winds. A section of our fence was blown down, but other than that they didn't get any damage to the house.

All classes were canceled after 12pm today and until 12:30 tomorrow so I have had nothing to do but stay inside and watch the news.

Just had to call in the dupe squad, a dog needed shooting.

The damage is more widespread than I was expecting. How many Arfcommers are affected, anyone know?

When they actually get footage of the worst areas I predict you ain't seen nothing yet.

I'm betting this one did a shitload of damage. Hope too many people didn't get killed. Anything Cat 3 or above is no joke - people die.

With the winds as strong as they are here, 250 miles from the coast... I can't imagine what it was like there.

We got a call at work today from the Coast Guard. They were wanting to know how many freight containers we could sell them. They were also intrested in reefers. Any ideas on what they might use all those containers for?
