Louisiana braces itself as Katrina closes in

Emergency services are on standby as hurricane Katrina nears the cost of the southern states. The storm is expected to make landfall on Monday. The Sports Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana has been handed over to some 10,000 people, made refugees by the enforced evacuation. The size of the storm headed their way has astounded many residents. One Florida resident said, “The bloody size of it” and added that heavy rain had followed him on a journey along the Tampa arm.
