Hurricane Katrina went into Fort Lauderdale first but she had just reached hurricane strength. My daughter lives in Fort Lauderdale and she lost almost all her trees, but fortunately they did not get the flooding of water as elsewhere, in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.
I am on the Florida Gulf coast and we prayed that Katrina would go past us because we have not yet recovered from hurricane Charley of last year. It seemed like forever before we could breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that Katrina would not hit us. However I feel so much sympathy in having Katrina make landfall elsewhere.
