I caught two weather reports on TV
in New Orleans this evening: one (Fox-8)was thinking it would be taking a track similar to Andrew, tracking across south Florida and into the Gulf of Mexico. The other (ABC-26) was thinking it start a curve towards the north paralleling just east of the Florida coastline. Both seem to think that next Tuesday will be a pivotal day so far as New Orleans goes.
Looks like the NOAA thinks it'll take a northward turn around the Bahamas.
Of course, I'll go along with Sleekjet: I wouldn't want to be in south Florida. Then again, if it looks like it'll affect MSY
, we'll open MSY
's EOC, and I'll be stationed at the airport for the duration.
Time will tell.
