Hurricane Rita brings early death, destruction BEAUMONT (AP) — Hurricane Rita steamed toward refinery towns along the Texas-Louisiana coast with 125 mph winds Friday, creating havoc even before it arrived: levee breaks caused new flooding in New Orleans, and as many as 24 people were killed when a bus carrying nursing-home evacuees caught fire in a traffic jam. Rita weakened during the day into a Category 3 hurricane after raging as a Category 5, 175-mph monster earlier in the week. The hurricane was expected to come ashore early Saturday on a course that could spare I louston and Galveston but slam the oil refining towns of Beaumont and Port Arthur and Lake Charles, La., with a 20-foot storm surge, towering waves and up to 25 inches of rain. "That’s where people are going to die,” said Max Mayfield, director of the National Hurricane Center. “All these areas are just going to get absolutely clobbered by the storm surge." Late Friday, southwestern Louisiana was soaked by driving rain and coastal flooding. Sugarcane fields, ranches and marshlands were already under water at dusk in coastal Cameron Parish. The sparsely populated region was almost completely evacuated, but authorities rushed to the aid of a man who had decided to ride out the storm in a house near the Gulf of Mexico after one of man’s friends called for help. They were turned back by flooded roads. “He’s going to take the full brunt of this hurricane coming in,” sheriff’s Capt. James Hines said. Police rescued four people huddled under an overhang outside the locked downtown civic center. “There's probably going to be 4 feet of water where they are now,” Hines said. “So they need to get out of there." Empty coastal highways and small towns were blasted with wind-swept rain. A metal hurricane evacuation route sign along one road wagged violently in the wind, and clumps of cattle huddled in fields. “We’re going to get through this,” Texas Gov. Rick Perry said. "Be calm, be strong, say a prayer for Texas.” In the storm's cross-hairs were the marshy towns along the Louisiana line: Port Arthur, a city of about 58,000 where the main industries include oil, shrimping and crawfishing; and Beaumont, a port city of about 114,000 that was the birthplace of the modem oil industry. It was in Beaumont that the Spindle-top well erupted in a 100-foot gusher in 1901 and created such giants as Gulf, Humble and Texaco. GAS CONTINUED FROM Page 1A Hurricane Rita could cause prices to jump began. When the storm is over, they could once again rise dramatically, Spring said. "The bottom line is we expect prices to go up," Spring said. “Obviously, theres been no damage yet, but a couple of pipelines have been closed down, and as happened with Katrina, theres been an interruption in delivery.” Those pipelines from the Texas gulf coast feed not only Texas, but the Midwest, Spring said.

Her parade partner, 3-year-old Jackson Fath, was more interested in the other animals than in keeping her entertained. Growing bored of being admired by passers by, the goat wandered off in search of something to nibble. While Annabelle was somewhat ho-hum about participating in the parade, Choala could hardly contain herself. The tiny Pekingese ran around her little red wagon ride frantically, trying to take in everything at once. “It’s her first time,” said her parade partner, Alyssa Sanchez. “She’s really excited.” Sanchez, 7, and Anissa Saenz, 9, marched the parade dressed in grass skirts and leis. They have never been to Hawaii, but they both said they would like to. Choala did not seem to mind her hot pink flower garland. The girls said she was a good sport. “Last year she was a New Braunfels cheerleader,” Sanchez said. Some of the more unusual participants in the parade included a cat and rabbits carried in cages and a pig in a wagon.

Obviously, there’s been no damage yet, but a couple of pipelines have been closed down, and as happened with Katrina, there’s been an interruption in delivery.” — Jeff Spring On possible rise of gas prices after Hurricane Rita go after the weekend, Spring said, was uncertain. But he added some industry analysts were estimating jumps to $4 or so per gallon. “We do expect a spike,” Spring said. “It’s hard to say how high until we see what the damage was.” Valero Energy Vice President of communications Mary Rose Brown said refineries with a total capacity of 3.4 million barrels per day had been closed in Corpus Christi, Houston and Port Arthur in anticipation of Rita’s landfall. An additional 885,000 barrels per day of capacity were still missing due to refineries and pipelines that remained shut down as a result of damage left by Katrina. "That’s about 4.3 million BPD of the 17 million BPD total U.S. refining capacity,” Brown said. “Obviously, that’s going to have a big impact on supply and prices.” Even if Rita causes no major damage to refineries, there will still be an impact. It takes a week or more to bring them back on line, she said. “You can’t just flip a switch to start a refinery because refineries run on high pressure and at high temperatures,” Brown said. “And because one unit ‘feeds’ another, you have to bring the units up one at a time.” 2005 Football Photo CDs Capture football memories from your favorite local team in photographs!
