As Hurricane Rita approaches the coastal areas of Texas and Louisiana, we're bringing you all the latest.

As I write this I'm watching live pictures from New Orleans.  Our reporter Michelle Hofland is standing outside as the wind and rain whip a round her.  Hopefully the levees can hold the additional rainfall expected.

Stay tuned to MSNBC.
