They're not Hurricanes by the time they reach in where we are, but Katrina's slated to come right up the Ohio Valley and nail Pittsburgh. The damage they can do here's severe though. Ivan last year was right after another one, and the 1-2 punch they created was pretty severe. Ivan pretty much did it all on its own though, and caused massive flooding, landslides, deaths, damage... I got stranded last year north of the city from about 3:30 to midnight trying to figure out how I'd get at least to my gf's house on backroads since every main route was out of order for the night pretty much.
It was a rough night, and I wasn't home to take care of the house which almost had water on our first floor level... I was at my gf's which flooded in the basement fortunately, but people down from her had total losses... They're still cleaning up around here from last year. It's a mess, and there's a ton of fear about what Katrina could do. Some are predicting far worse, others less, so who knows. All I know is I'm not getting stuck out in it.
