Well this topic is for all of us who work along the gulf coast. I know we all can't wait for Hurricane season to end. I've been lucky in my 14 yrs to only have to work one "Rita". Matter of fact I've only lived through one, never had experienced one until then. Rita just so happen to come through the night before my birthday. What a way to celebrate a birthday, working in the rain and having to clean up the mess she left behind. I know we all hate Hurricanes and always hope that they don't come to our areas, but the bad thing is that if you don't get it someone else will. All we can do is hope and pray for the officer's safety as they do their work and maintain order in the towns. It's unsure where Gustav is heading but as for now, it's not looking to good for us in Louisiana. This forum is for all Gulf Coast officers' to talk about their experiences. Just tried to add a picture to this and it won't  let me or I just don't know what I'm doing. LOL

I work in the metro New Orleans area and stayed for Katrina and Gustav and Ike after awhile you get tired of having a wet ass from the rain and no power.

I hate hurricane season.  Well, it use to be a season but, they keep extending it so pretty soon it will be an all year event.

I don't live on the Gulf Coast, but I do live on the east coast of Florida.  In 2004, I finally felt the raft of Hurricane Francis.  It was a nightmare.  I turned out working a shelter for a few days, than went back on the road.  No electric, gas, water, etc.  Once everything started getting a little better, a week later we get whacked with Hurricane Jean.  Both hurricanes hit land a few miles from each other and a few miles from my county.  It will be something that I will never forget and I pray every year that will never happen again here or anywhere else.  I also will never forget the assistance from other law enforcement agencies and Natioal Guard, as well as the local citizens feeding and giving us drinks.  I learned a lot about people during this tragic time.
