Katrina is making landfall down south of us around the Broward/Palm Beach County line. That is about 40 or 50 miles south of us. She is a minimal hurricane now with sustained winds of 75 mph. It is rainy and windy here. The winds must be sustained around 40 mph with gusts to 50 mph. We have heard no thunder but the wind is howling like a banshee. It is not a major storm event up here on the north side of the storm but it is blowing hard enough to do some minor things like blowing limbs out of trees and blowing any loose objects around. The storm should begin decreasing in strength as soon as it starts moving over land. The good thing, knock on wood, is that so far we have not lost power. That is a very good thing.
