Katrina still a powerful storm hours later, hundreds of miles north

This image, from ABC Channel 5, shows a car in a flooded intersection last night, August 30, in the wake of the rains dumped by Hurricane Katrina... in Cleveland, Ohio.

For the storm to still pack that kind of punch when it reached the shores of Lake Erie gives you some sense of the power and magnitude of this hurricane.

This car is not in a flooded streambed. This car is just off the road surface. Note the pole and the trucks on the roadway in the background. And Lakeshore Blvd., for those not familiar with the Cleveland area, is about as far north as you can get without landing in the lake.
