Wish it would have got about a hundred miles further west. We need some rain up here as well. The river that cuts through the base hunting ground is literally just a few puddles now. It was pathetic.

Storm threatens oil rigs...

Oil companies began evacuating workers from rigs in the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday ahead of what US forecasters said could be a powerful and dangerous storm.

"Right now we're giving it a 70 percent chance of developing into a tropical cyclone sometime in the next 48 hours," said Dennis Feltgen, a spokesman for the Miami-based National Hurricane Center.

"Where it will go and what it will do is too early to tell."

The weather service is urging residents across the Gulf Coast to keep an eye on the storm which will likely bring heavy rain and powerful winds and could also cause some flooding.

"Gosh knows the rain is needed from Texas to Florida," Feltgen told AFP. "This could be a godsend."

But it could spell a slowdown for oil operations in the Gulf, source of a substantial portion of US offshore crude.

ExxonMobil said it is evacuating approximately 140 employees and contractors from Gulf Coast offshore platforms expected to be in the path of the storm.

"Gross production of approximately 11,000 barrels per day of liquids and 60 million cubic feet per day of natural gas has been shut-in," the oil giant said in a statement.

BP said it had begun evacuating "all personnel from its operative assets in the Gulf of Mexico" on Thursday, but did not indicate the impact on production. Shell said weather conditions were interfering with evacuation efforts and it might be safer to leave some workers on their rigs.

"Our priorities at this time continue to be ensuring the safety of personnel, protecting the environment and minimizing production and operational impact," the Dutch energy giant said in a statement.

NEW ORLEANS A slow-moving system in the Gulf of Mexico strengthened Friday to become a tropical storm, the National Hurricane Center said, as the Big Easy and other Gulf cities prepared for up to 20 inches of rain by unclogging drains and upping flood defenses.

Dubbed a "super soaker" by the National Weather Service, Tropical Storm Lee had 40 mph sustained winds at 2 p.m. ET and was already spreading its rain bands across New Orleans and the rest of southern Louisiana.
Gusts near 60 mph were reported on oil rigs in the Gulf and NHC Director Bill Read, asked if Lee could become a hurricane with winds greater than 74 mph, said "I wouldn't rule that out."

"Wow. This could be a very heavy, prolific rainmaker," addedd NWS meteorologist Frank Revitte.

Parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama could see 20 inches of rain; dry Texas left out

NEW ORLEANS A slow-moving system in the Gulf of Mexico strengthened Friday to become a tropical storm, as the Big Easy and other Gulf cities prepared for up to 20 inches of rain by unclogging storm drains and upping flood defenses.

"Prepare for the worst, let's hope for the best," New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu urged residents as he declared a state of emergency Friday afternoon. The governors of Louisiana and Mississippi also declared emergencies.

The city has closed flood gates and staged rescue boats ahead of what is expected to be "localized flooding" in some areas over the next five days. New Orleans is also hosting 200,000 visitors attending several conventions this weekend.
