I'm from New Orleans (NO) and have lots of relatives there. I'm happy to see the projected track is gradually moving to the west. A few days ago it was projected directly at NO.
But if it hits just a bit to the west, it's not so good because the hurricane rotation is counter-clockwise and that will push water into Lake Pontchartain and worsen the flood possibility.
It needs to move more to the west. They sure don't need another flood.
My relatives are already planning on getting out of town.
Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.
