Keep up-to-date on Rita

ImplosionAs you can imagine, people in these parts are watching the progress of Category 5 Hurricane Rita.

The Sun Herald is updating its web site frequently. And check out this demolition photo. According to the web site: "The Grand Casino Gulfport entertainment barge is imploded Wednesday after it was washed onto U.S. Highway 90 by Hurricane Katrina in August. Officials hope to have the barge completely cut up and removed in two weeks."

U.S. 90 is the major road through Biloxi and neighboring Gulfport but remains closed because of the damage from the hurricane. Thus, traffic has been heavy on other main roads, especially the only other east-west corridor, Pass Road.
