More Hurricane Horror

Hurricane Rita is threatening to sweep over the Texas coast. Currently the level is a horrific Category 5, but is expected to weaken to a Category 3 or 4 by landfall, currently projected to be on Saturday. Category 3 and 4 hurricanes are still capable of major destruction.

This time around, authorities have supplies in position, according to Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. Let's hope that they're actually prepared this time.

While I am am keeping all the people in Texas in my thoughts and hearts regardless (as are all the folks here at SoCal Progressives), my thoughts are especially going out to those in Houston, as it is probable that Rita may hit that city, where the largest concentration of Katrina survivors have been staying. No one should have to go through such terror twice in one lifetime, let alone in one month.

Please help out if you can, as I'm sure it'll be needed.
