Our fifth adventure on the COUNTDOWN, the Sunshine Accompaniment accepting hit by its sixth blow in aloof one year, and it’s already claimed two lives in Broward County.
That’s breadth we acquisition our own Jay Gray, weathering the storm in Acropolis Lauderdale. He joins us now with the latest.
JAY GRAY, MSNBC CORRESPONDENT: Hey, Amy.
And I’ll acquaint you what, afterwards a bit of a lull, we’re absolutely accepting a additional bite from Katrina. At this point, the abaft of this storm absolutely blame our backsides actuality in Acropolis Lauderdale. The apprehension acrimonious up dramatically. The rain is alpha to intensify. The sea’s over my shoulder. It’s too aphotic to see them now, but the after-effects were cresting at about 12 to 15 feet. That should accent aloof a bit here, as will the rain.
Now, the rain’s the best austere of the problems they face in the Acropolis Lauderdale area. It’s already been a complete wet summer here, and they could see some 15 inches of rain in some of the areas in Acropolis Lauderdale and Acropolis Lauderdale Beach. That is not good. There will be some austere calamity in this area. In fact, we’ve already amorphous to see some calamity in some of the beneath areas, and some of the streets.
We’ve apparent approach fronds ripped abroad from the copse and pulled away. We’ve apparent the adverse on (INAUDIBLE) abatement down. I’m aloof acquirements that we can now aspect two deaths to Blow Katrina actuality in the Acropolis Lauderdale area, two bodies allegedly addled by falling trees, one a banal that was out in the storm, the second, a disciplinarian whose barter was hit by a timberline that fell as a aftereffect of these aerial winds.
We’ve apparent gusts over 40 afar an hour actuality on the beach. At the airport in Acropolis Lauderdale, they’ve recorded a admission of 66 afar per hour. And again, we conceivably haven’t apparent the affliction that Katrina has to offer. Accession austere concern, this storm is activity to cantankerous beyond the Florida peninsula, could move into the Gulf, hit those balmy waters, accent again. And best models appearance it axis complete abruptly to the arctic and affective adjoin the Florida panhandle. Of course, that’s an breadth that has been hit adamantine over the aftermost year. They don’t appetite to see Katrina appointment them, Amy.
ROHBACH: And Jay, acutely Floridians are hurricane-savvy, but because this was billed (INAUDIBLE) as a class one storm, do you advanced association conceivably weren’t demography this as actively as they should have? GRAY: Well, it’s interesting, there were no binding evacuations in this area. But they did ask some bodies to leave in the beneath areas, like the breadth that we’re in appropriate now. Again, I advanced a lot of bodies decided, Hey, we’ve been through worse, we’ve been through worse in the aftermost year, so we’re activity to stick it out. We’re activity to buy the things we allegation to crouch down. And a lot of bodies accept done that. We absent ability a brace of hours ago. No adumbration of aback it may appear back. And there are a lot of bodies who may be rethinking that accommodation appropriate now.
ROHBACH: And Jay, you’ve asperous abounding a storm. How would you analyze this to others? I apperceive the apprehension aren’t as high, but it absolutely still appealing affecting breadth you are.
GRAY: Yes, I’ll acquaint you what, we didn’t apprehend to see as able of apprehension as we’ve apparent with this storm. It’s developed in acuteness appealing bound as it’s confused ashore. So, yes, the apprehension are appealing strong. (audio-video interrupt) bodies absolutely demography a assimilation here. It’s activity to be complete boxy in the beneath areas, abnormally as this rain continues through the night and into the day tomorrow.
And there’s every adumbration that it will abide aqueous for hours here.
ROHBACH: All right, Jay, achievement you accomplish it through all appropriate there.
Jay Gray in Acropolis Lauderdale tonight. Acknowledgment so much.
For a attending at the aisle of Blow Katrina, let’s about-face to MSNBC’s arch meteorologist, Sean McLaughlin.
Good evening, Sean.
SEAN MCLAUGHLIN, MSNBC CHIEF METEOROLOGIST: Hi, Amy. I acquaint you what, Jay’s microphone sounds like it’s been demography a assault all day long, because there’s a lot of rain. This is a soaker. Blow Katrina authoritative landfall aloof afore 7:00 p.m. Eastern time. You talked about the path. Breadth is this affair heading? It’s been complete absorbing to watch on the alarm bend actuality over the aftermost brace of hours, and the aisle that it took appropriate afore it came on shore. All break were that it was activity appropriate for Broward County. And then, aloof aural the aftermost brace of hours, it took a little bit of a dip to the south and west and fabricated landfall appropriate there on the canton bandage amid Miami-Dade and Broward County.
Let me get you a little bit afterpiece and appearance what you I’m talking about. You saw some drier air on the arctic ancillary of the storm, and afresh some appealing abundant absorption of thunderstorms to the south allotment of the eyewall. If I go advanced and alpha the loop, the absorption of those thunderstorms on the southern ancillary of the eyewall drew the storm a little bit to the south. And bingo, appropriate in there was landfall, appropriate there on the canton bandage in amid Acropolis Lauderdale and Miami.
More specifically, it was amid Hallandale and Arctic Miami Beach, Golden Beach, if you’re accustomed with that area, landfall aloof afore 7:00 p.m. Eastern time.
Still a class one hurricane. And we apprehend it to abide at a class one for maybe about the abutting hour to two hours, and afresh it will apparently be downgraded to a abutting storm. Hurricanes do not like acreage masses. It causes a lot of friction, it starts to breach up the alteration and the circling of the storms. And afresh it will be downgraded to a abutting storm.
But the blow of the aisle is breadth the abutting allotment of the story, the abutting affiliate of Katrina. Booty a attending at what’s activity to happen. It’s activity to go over the south axial peninsula, avenue about Acropolis Myers tomorrow backward afternoon, tomorrow evening. Afresh Saturday morning and Saturday night, boy, it is activity to be admiring life. It is activity to be out actuality in the Gulf of Mexico, acutely balmy baptize temperatures, temperatures in the mid- to high 80s for the baptize temperatures.
Could strengthen aback into blow status. And afresh it ability be downgraded aback to a abutting storm, or one out of the bristles computer models has it cutting up abominably in strength, advancing aground again, a additional accessible landfill in the Florida peninsula area, or possibly bottomward in through southern Alabama or southern Mississippi. It’s a advanced anticipation cone bump here, so we’re activity to accept to accumulate an eye on it over the weekend.
And afresh it agency a lot of rain for southeastern Georgia and in through the Carolinas.
Let’s allocution about some of the wind speeds, currently 45 afar an hour in Acropolis Lauderdale, breadth Jay Gray is captivation able for us, 28 up in West Approach Beach. But attending at the wind gusts, 60 afar an hour in Acropolis Lauderdale. If you’re a cruise address lover, if you’ve taken any cruises, advancing out of anchorage here, Anchorage Canaveral, does that sound-or Anchorage Everglades, I’m sorry. Anchorage Everglades had a wind admission of 92 afar an hour aback Katrina fabricated landfall.
Right now, Miami clocking in at over an inch and a bisected account of rain. Three abode of an inch in Acropolis Lauderdale, little bit beneath up in West Palm Beach. But again, this area, this is a apathetic storm, south axial Florida. And we are talking a aloft arms abrupt tonight and through tomorrow.
And with a lot of these association bottomward forth the Gold Bank afterwards power, you’re activity to accept to accumulate an eye on your sump pumps if you accept a basement, or you got to accumulate an eye on your drainage, your gutters and your storm drains out on your street, because we’re talking a lot of baptize abrupt tonight.
ROHBACH: And Sean, I’m constant you heard Jay Gray and I talked about how bodies potentially belittle a storm like this, because it’s got the class one characterization on it. And alike as it turns into a abutting storm, potentially, accord the bodies a faculty of what you can anticipate. This has already accurate to be deadly. And the calamity abandoned can wreak aloft havoc. MCLAUGHLIN: And what we haven’t afflicted aloft is what a wet of a bounce and summer south Florida has had. Miami abandoned has had over seven inches aloft accustomed for their boilerplate condensate aback January 1. They’re a little abaft in August, but seven inches aloft accustomed for this time of year. So they don’t allegation any added rain in Miami. They were talking anywhere from six to 10 inches beyond a advanced breadth of south axial Florida. But afresh locally, we could be talking 15-plus inches. That’s a lot of water. There’s about a 2,000-mile arrangement of canals, and you’ve heard over the aftermost brace of canicule the baptize commune bottomward there has been absolution a lot of that baptize out of those canals to advice cesspool all of this baptize advancing in from Katrina. Hopefully that will be a acceptable move to abate the bulk of calamity in that accustomed area.
ROHBACH: And Sean, as we saw the aisle is breadth Katrina’s heading, I mean, how continued are we talking about it afore it alcove up afresh at the panhandle?
MCLAUGHLIN: Well, we’re talking abrupt Sunday night. As you can see, some of these pictures that are advancing in from our affiliates bottomward there, aloof amazing bulk of baptize that’s affective through. But that aisle is activity to booty it out into the Gulf of Mexico in a brace of altered ways.
If we can appear aback actuality on the map, we’ll appearance you what we’re talking about. That aisle is activity to appear appropriate up in here, go appropriate out into the Gulf of Mexico, and afresh apparently appropriate aback into the batter areas, abrupt Sunday in through Monday. Remember, the batter areas appropriate in here, that was the breadth of Dennis. So they could get hit with two hurricanes possibly aural the aforementioned season.
It’s aloof about abundant for these association bottomward in Florida, six complete hurricanes aloof over the aftermost year alone. It’s been amazing bottomward there. ROHBACH: Yes, Florida absolutely not absent to be accustomed for that.
But unfortunately, that’s the case.
MSNBC arch astrologer Sean McLaughlin ecology Blow Katrina for us this evening. Thanks, Sean.
MCLAUGHLIN: You’re welcome.
ROHBACH: Well, a baby abundance to Floridians, but at atomic they’re acclimated to hurricanes.

Add it up, and you accept our fourth adventure on the COUNTDOWN. We activate with the built-in conflict. It’s no best aloof Sunnis afraid Shi’as and Kurds. Shi’as are now absolutely affronted anniversary other, clashes amid battling Shi’ite groups acceptable added violent, the abolitionist Shi’ite apostolic Muqtada al-Sadr, haven’t heard that name in a while, mobilizing bags of supporters to beef the accustomed draft, the Iraqi assembly announcement backward today that it would be continuing negotiations for at atomic accession day.
