Our Natural Disaster Correspondent, PatPhish returns with his outlook on Tropical Storm (soon to be Hurricane) Gustav…

I sure hope Chris Paul can swim…

How stupid is David Stern for moving a team with a good fan base to Oklahoma City, when the team that should be there is about to become homeless……again? I guess the Saints will have a great year playing in the new open air Super-nondome. Living in South Florida, I have been forced to become a bit of tropical storm expert. Basically, New Orleans is FUCKED. I don’t mean Katrina fucked, with flood waters that eventually recede. I mean “Holy shit, it looks like Beruit, blown to smithereens, off the freaking map FUCKED.”

I lived through Charlie, Frances, and Jeanne in 2004, also Katrina and a very nasty Wilma in 2005, and we suffered severe damage. Charlie ripped apart the west coast and Wilma shredded my area in Palm Beach County. The big difference is that Florida is mostly new construction, built after tough codes were introduced after Andrew destroyed southern Dade County in 1992. New Orleans is a poor city, built to house poor people, with substandard materials to non-existant code. Every building there was weakened by the Katrina flood and get this…….THE CITY IS STILL BELOW SEA LEVEL. I feel for the people that went back to rebuild it, who grew up there and whose roots are there. It was a great city. If Gustav stays on course and levels it, it needs to left alone to die.
