Rita: Three Hours On A Concrete Floor

By Brian 

FNC’s Adam Housley kept a reporter’s notebook during Hurricane Katrina. On Saturday evening he wrote:

“We have now been at this for nearly 44 straight hours. The only downtime came a short while after the eye made landfall. We got about three hours to lie coldly on a concrete floor.

Our trip began in Corpus Christi, then onto Port Lavaca, Freeport and Clute, followed by our stay in Winnie, Texas for Rita’s trip ashore. This morning we saw Port Arthur, Bridge City and Orange, ending up across the state line in Lake Charles, Louisiana.”
