Bigger than Camille, Time to Pray
A DROP IN THE EYE
GAVE A CENTRAL PRESSURE OF 907 MB. KATRINA IS COMPARABLE IN
INTENSITY TO HURRICANE CAMILLE OF 1969...ONLY LARGER.
Andrew hit with a central pressure of 922mb.
Camille hit with a central pressure of 909mb.
Right now, Katrina is at 907mb. If she stays anywhere around here (and there is NO reason to think she will weaken dramatically other than natural weakening of a big storm) it will be absolutely devastating.
Winds of 175, which are more than enough to make plans take off in. SUSTAINED WINDS.
For comparison, this is similar to a F3 tornado.
