Hurricane Rita continues to build strength in the warm Gulf of Mexico, please be prepared for anything.
After less than 100 miles of hitting land, Hurricane Katrina dropped from Category 5 to Category 3 and died soon after. Tropical Storm Allison wasn’t even a hurricane, but when it hit Houston head on, it resulted in about 50 deaths and $5 billon in damages.
I’m in the NW area of Houston and I’m now considering evacuating to good old Dallas. Last night, I was very skeptical of the media coverage of Rita, but now after a day of research on hurricanes, weather, history of hurricanes, and lots more that has changed my decision from no to a maybe.
