MIAMI,FLORIDA-Hurricane Katrina hammered Florida's crowded southeast coast with hours of buffeting winds and whipping rains, pitching 2 million people into darkness as power lines came down and killing two.The storm, which was supposed to be a minimal hurricane but nevertheless delivered a fierce punch, weakened slightly over the swampy Everglades on Friday, but in its wake it left flooded neighborhoods and streets carpeted with tree limbs and leaves.
Katrina dumped up to 12 inches of rain after coming ashore just south of Fort Lauderdale and then began a slow and punishing trek southwest across southern Florida, said the U.S.
National Hurricane Center National Hurricane Center in Miami.
Two men were killed in Fort Lauderdale and the city of Plantation to the west by falling trees, said Broward County public information officer Dennis Myers. WFOR television said the first man died when the tree brought a power line down onto his car.

Just checking in to make sure you were okay--doesn't sound like much fun down there. :(

Looks like we will be spared this time around, but my sis lives in New Orleans. Course we all know how these canes tend to change thier minds and do what they want.

Hope there wasn't too much damage and that everyone is fine!
