At 830am CDT I finally got a phone call thru to our family friends who live next door to the Radisson. They have 5-6 feet of water, no power, no TV. Winds are still strong and rain, of course. From their house, they can see no appreciable damage to the neighborhood except for debris. Since they have no TV, they cannot stay updated on the hurricane, so I advised them of the current location(from the Weather Channel) and also advised that it was downgraded to a Cat 2 Hurricane(now it's a CAT 1). Hope this info helps.
