The coming of hurricane Rita

It's sad to see that we're not out of the woods yet, as far as hurricane Rita is now showing. Michelle Malkin for starters provides us with the coverage on the new hurricane crisis that's now taken place in the Texas area. Traffic is horrible, and no, I wouldn't want to get stuck in bumper-to-bumper jams, as Rightmom from Houston mentions have taken place. In any case, I do hope that everyone will be okay.

That said, it's a shame to find out that disaster has struck, as reported here. A bus exploded while transporting evacuees from Bellaire in Texas. Please make sure to provide prayers for the victims.

New Orleans has sadly encountered new problems with the levees, as reported here. As the AP Wire says:
NEW ORLEANS -- Water poured over a patched levee Friday, cascading into one of the city's lowest-lying neighborhoods and heightening fears that Hurricane Rita would re-flood this devastated city.

"Our worst fears came true. The levee will breach if we keep on the path we are on right now, which will fill the area that was flooded earlier,'' Barry Guidry with the Georgia National Guard.

Dozens of blocks in the Ninth Ward were under water as a waterfall at least 30 feet wide poured over a dike that had been used to patch breaks in the Industrial Canal. On the street that runs parallel to the canal, the water ran waist-deep and was rising fast.

The impoverished neighborhood was one of the areas of the city hit hardest by Katrina's floodwaters and finally had been pumped dry before Hurricane Rita struck.

Mitch Frazier, a spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers, said water is rushing over part of the levee that previously was breached.
Texans are also understandably worried about the state of the levees in their areas. I certainly hope that things can be worked out for the better.
