Thursday June 14^th .

Kaboudreaux has been upgraded to a CAT 4 and slowly moves toward the 
Louisiana coast. Kaboudreaux's outer rain bands begin to hammer 
Lafayette and the surrounding parishes. NHC predicts Kaboudreaux to 
strengthen to a CAT 5 before landfall. I-49 North and I-10 East and West 
look like parking lots, contra-flow has started. EVAC's continue, but 
some people fearing the traffic on EVAC routes begin showing up at local 
hospitals. Red Cross opens shelters in North Louisiana, Texas and 
Mississippi. The LANG are activated. Cell phone service is overloaded. 
Because of the mandatory EVAC orders, stores are being asked not to 
restock their shelves so people will leave the area.

Scott Police Department is reporting a Boudin and Cracklin riot at the 
Best Stop. When the store owner announced that they were down to their 
last 200 pounds of Boudin and 50 pounds of Cracklins about 40 people 
lunged at the counter and grabbed what they could, witnesses say that is 
when the fighting started. The rioters, now numbering 60 and including 
men, women, and children continue fighting in the parking lot using 
fist, knives, broken bottles, etc. A limited amount of gunfire was 
reported. When the rioters heard the police sirens approaching, they all 
hopped in their vehicles and tried to leave the parking at the same time 
running into each other. One man driving a pickup truck with a camper on 
the back made a high speed sharp turn in the parking lot flipping the 
truck on its side causing the rear door to fly open. The man was not 
injured, but when the camper door flew open about 75 chickens and 6 
goats escaped. The police arrived in time to catch all but 2 of the 
rioters. One of the rioters was last seen heading South in his 
"Hoveround", the other rioter who headed North was dressed in a purple 
raincoat and wearing a pointed hat made of duck tape, he was seen with 
two chickens getting on his horse that had gold socks. Scott Menard 
N5MEG hearing the gunfire coming from the Best Stop climbed his tower so 
he could see what was going on. From the top of the 60 foot tower, Scott 
reported seeing people chasing chickens around the Best Stop parking lot 
and a man heading North with a chicken on each shoulder, in the purple 
raincoat with the pointy hat made of duck tape on the horse with the 
gold socks. Scott didn't think the man had anything to do with the riot, 
he just assumed that the man was a little under dressed and early for 
the February 1, 2013 Church Point courir De Mardi Gras.



Fearing another riot, Scott police ask the Best Stop owner to close his 
store for the remainder of the day.

NHC - TS BOHICA (Bend Over Here It Comes Again) continues to organize 
and follow the same path as Kaboudreaux.

The price of OIL reaches $160.00 BBL.
