Gulfport update 

This is the latest from Chief Pat Sullivan in Gulfport, reported by Sun Herald staffer Josh Norman: A tornado was reported in North Gulfport this morning -- no further info right now. The Gaston Hewes Recreation Center is partially collapsed. There is water in buildings all over Gulfport Business District (downtown), and glass has been blown out of many buildings. Waves are breaking NORTH of U.S. 90 in many areas in Gulfport. A few boats are floating NORTH of U.S. 90 in a couple of areas. There is water in the Downtown Library.

For the next hurricane ophelia ; the easy way to keep going.
Hello, Just wandering the blogosphere and happened on your blog. I like the way how you have put it all together. I'll be coming back again.
