Hurricane Rita

Hurricane Rita is huge. A very powerful storm. Category Five. I hope those in her path flee. Do not attempt to ride her out. She is mean and deadly.

My hope is that this storm will weaken significantly before making landfall ( unlikely as that is).

Obviously, there is the huge oil port at Houston and lots of refineries there. Approximately, a third of the nation's oil refining capacity is located between the western edge of Louisiana down to Freeport, TX. All those facilities are facing damage. Gas prices could hit $5 a gallon. The worst case would probably be the storm heading right up Galveston Bay towards Houston.
