_After hitting Florida last week, Katrina strengthened to a Category 5 storm over the Gulf of Mexico but weakened slightly and came ashore early Monday as a Category 4 storm with wind of 145 mph.
_A water main broke in New Orleans, making it unsafe to drink the city's water without first boiling it. Police made several arrests for looting.
_The highest winds in New Orleans were estimated at about 100 mph.
_Evacuations: New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin ordered the entire city of 485,000 to evacuate. For those who couldn't, the city opened 10 shelters, including the Superdome. The mayor estimated that 80 percent of the city's residents had left.
_About 9,000 spent the night at the Superdome arena. Power failed, and three hours later the wind tore away metal and left two holes in the roof, one 15 to 20 feet long. Officials said the holes were not dangerous.

(If you can afford to get there. Katrina's caused wholesale gas prices to rise. Like any excuse was needed for that to happen.)
