32. My concern about the Superdome...
I can picture the roof of the dome getting ripped off.... then what..?

If this thing can knock over scrapers.... no building is secure enough. I would call out the National Guard and help those people that can't get out...0h..wait a minute.. The local National Guard is in Iraq. Damn!
