NEW ORLEANS - Hurricane Katrina strengthened to a dangerous Category 5 storm on Sunday with 160 mph sustained wind as residents of south Louisiana jammed freeways in a rush to get out of the low-lying region and head inland to higher ground.

Dear Friends,

I appreciate all the advice and well wishes and prayers. I don't know how this is going to turn out. I'm not going to lie to you and pretend that I believe this will be a cake walk. I mean, I don't even know what a cake walk is. Is that some kind of event where you walk for charity and eat cake when you're done? Or maybe you eat the cake while you walk. I just don't know how it works. But I know this: I won't be eating any cake, and any walking I do will be more of a patrol than anything else.

Everyone says I should leave, Part of me wants to. But, my parents are staying, and I know I'm going to have to rescue them.

I love you guys, and I want you to say nice things about me if I die.

Lock yourself in a windowless laundry closet and have lots of sex until it is over. If it is more serious than that, make note of where your nearest fallout shelter is and how to get there.

Take care.

I'm pretty sure any fallout shelter is going to be below the flood line...

Wouldn't shelters be designed with that it mind in that area? I wonder if the underground tunnels under Stennis Space Center flood when they have hurricanes.

They built a whole city under sea level. I wouldn't take anything for granted.

Well, they might still be below flood line, but they'd probably be sealed.
