11:10 p.m. CDT
Rain starts and stops. It's silent outside except for the increasing wind. The rain is starting to tilt to the west with the direction of circulation. In the next few hours it should turn to an almost fully horizontal flow.

The scanner is full of dispatches to alarms going off all over the place. Either Biloxi or Gulfport PD is about to shut down its main dispatch center. Soon we'll be alone.
