just said a 14-18 tidal surge not including wave action levees are what 14 ft at lakeshore in N O. it will never be the same as we knew it ..... i'm 12.5 ft above and about
1 1/4 from the lake .wonder if i'll get hit

When Ivan hit Pensacola.. It did massive waterfront damage. I got pics somewhere I should scan to show you. I-10 bridge did have sections that were lifted off the pillars and dumped into the bay. That was the result of 30 foot storm surge that was pushed up the bay from the gulf.

Good luck and be safe. You definately have your priorities right. Family first. I hope you house fairs well and your place of employment survives. Hang in there.
