Hurricane Rita

Rita Gave NEMA Chance To Test Level Of Preparedness

Tropical Storm Rita yesterday provided an opportunity for officials of the National Emergency Management Agency to test their own level of preparedness as they huddled in meetings to discuss how best to react to the storm.

"We can expect at least four to six inches of rain in the immediate vicinity of Rita and that is those islands in the central Bahamas – Long Island, Cat Island, South Eleuthera and San Salvador," meteorologist Mike Stubbs said. "We expect sea surges of some six to nine feet in the immediate vicinity as well."
