Katrina trods deadly path across Florida
FOHT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Flooded streets resembled canals, sailboats sat on the sand and a highway overpass lay in ruin Friday in the hours after Hurricane Katrina plodded across South Florida.
The storm’s wind then zoomed to IOO mph as Katrina moved over the Gulf of Mexico.
Four people were killed, a family of five was missing at sea and more than a million homes and businesses lost power after the storm crashed ashore late Thursday.
It reached Category 2 status Friday morning, and forecasters said it could become a major hurricane by the time it reaches the Gulf Coast early next week, perhaps with winds of at least 131 mph.
Katrina’s first Florida land strike came Thursday night along the Miami-Dade and Broward county line.
Rain fell in horizontal sheets, seas were estimated at 15 feet and sustained wind flit 80 mph, with gusts reaching 92 mph. Up to 11-1/2 inches of rain fell on Miami-Dade County. Crews scrambled to clear roads and repair utility lines around the region.
“This place went bananas last night,’’ said John Vazquez, 62, who rode out the storm in his oceanfront condominium in Hallandale Beach.
Carolyne and Carter McHyman, also living on the oceanfront, said heavy downpours pelted their windows after the eye passed.

AAA: GAS PRICES CLIMB AGAIN — Texas gas prices climbed this week to an average $2.55 per gallon for regular self-serve, according to the weekly AAA Texas gas price survey released Friday.
The 2 cent increase was far less titan last week’s 22-cent increase, but still pushed the average price in Texas 66 cents higher than last year’s average.
Dallas again had the state high with $2.62 per gallon, up 2 cents from die week before. San Antonio had the cheapest with an average of $2.48 per gallon, up a penny.
Beaumont was the only city in the survey to post a decrease this week with a penny drop to $2.51 per gallon.
The national average showed a 2-cent increase to $2.60, a penny less than the record set Aug. 22.
More price hikes at the pump are expected as more crude-oil price records continue to be set and the l^bor Day weekend
approaches, AAA Texas spokeswoman Rose Rougeau warned.
“Although it is expected that I lurricane Katrina will miss the rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, speculators pushed crude prices to a new all-time high — $67.49 a barrel," Rougeau said. “It appears the threat of the hurricane is magnified due to supply concerns in an already tight market.”
COMMISSION VOTES TO KEEP ELLSWORTH, CANNON OPEN — The base closing commission voted Friday to keep open Air Force bases in South Dakota and New Mexico — rejecting the Pentagon’s plans to close them — as the panel labored toward conclusion of a politically delicate task that has brought alternating sighs of relief and exasperation in communities across America.
Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota would remain fully operational and Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico would
stay open but lose all of its aircraft.
The decisions were setbacks for Pentagon leaders.
The Ellsworth vote was a blessing for South Dakotans who feared losing some 4,000 jobs and a victory for Sen. John Thune and the state’s other politicians who lobbied vigorously to save the base. Thune, a freshman Republican, unseated then-Sen-ate Minority Leader Tom Daschle partly on the strength of his claim that he would be better positioned to help save the base.
SHUTE NEGOTIATOR REPORTS PROGRESS ON FEDERALISM - A Shiite negotiator reported progress Friday in constitutional talks with the Sunni Arabs and Kurds on federalism but problems on the proposal to ban members of Saddam I lussein’s Baath Party from public life.
Negotiator Jawad al-Maliki said the issue, known as “de-Baathifi-
cation,” was especially difficult because it was something “we cannot drop.”
“We will not be easy with this point at all,” al-Maliki said. The Sunnis were being tough in defending the rights of former Baath Party members, he said, and “it is regrettable to us that the Sunnis and the Baath are in the same pot.”
The progress came after Shiite negotiators, prodded by President Bush, offered what they called their final compromise proposal to Sunnis to try to break the impasse over the draft constitution, a Shiite official said.
