From the Sun Herald's offices 

Sun Herald reporter Josh Norman files the following from the paper's offices on DeBuys Road on the Gulfport-Biloxi city line about four blocks off the beach: The wind is whipping now. The roof on the building is creaking. You can hear the building's joints straining. Pat Sullivan called at 6:15 to ask if I wanted to go for a ride with him. I took one look outside and said, "nope." Anita felt brave briefly and thought she'd give it a go. Then she saw the winds. Pat pulled up, in a sedan I'd like to note, and said it was getting too rough and that he was heading back. I also just heard him over the scanner saying that he had succesfully extracted a woman and her 4 kids from their apartment after the roof ripped off. Lots of people still in their homes now and the shelters were pretty much all at capacity last night. I can't believe the complacency of people down here. There was a seagull in the parking lot, desperately clinging to life this morning. It was amazing that the thing held on in some of these gusts. It managed to find a slightly less windy spot behind a tire. Just hope the car stays there. I just saw Jim Cantore say he didn't know how much longer he was going to be able to broadcast from Gulfport. Uh oh. On the upside, the SunHerald's showers are lovely. And those windows in the conference room are providing a great view. Time to settle in and be prepared to run upstairs since the surge is now up over 90.
