    2008 Hurricane Season

    Has strengthened into a strong Cat. 4 storm and is expected to strengthen into a Cat. 5 soon. Fox News now has it projected to hit west of New Orleans as a Cat. 4.

    "A land strike to the west of New Orleans will place this great city within the most dangerous part of the storm,'' said Jim Rouiller, a senior energy meteorologist with Planalytics Inc., a forecaster based in Wayne, Pennsylvania. Gustav has the potential to generate much more damage than Katrina did.''

    I wish the best for everyone in that area.

    We're expecting to receive thousands of evacuees from the storm here in San Antonio.

    Tropical Storm Hanna is just a few days behind Gustav. It could easily cross Florida and find its way into the Gulf, too.

    There are two other systems out in the Atlantic that are developing. One looks like it will develop into a Tropical Depression soon. It looks like it's going to be a very busy hurricane season. One of the Fox reports said Gustav may the the strongest storm he's seen in his 32 years.

    This looks like a big one. My thoughts to any zoners in the path of Gustav. Good luck, people.

    I just talked to her. She's going to stay with family in Dallas tonight and her company is putting up their people in Arlington.

    It's sad that it takes a hurricane like Katrina to make us aware of what they can do, but great that atleast now we are fully prepared. I hope that we can be in there the second the storm is done to help with relief.

    I suppose it's like the boy that cried wolf and there are a thousand other factors.

    I'm glad they shut the superdome and made people leave though.

    This will be one of the great evacuations in history.

    Re: Hurricane Gustav

    If you want to understand New Orleans' dilemma, go to google earth and look it up. Zoom out and look at the lake north of the city. That's Lake Pontchartrain.

    The nightmare scenario discussed for years in the disaster relief community would be if a big hurricane came into New Orleans and made it to that lake.

    Many think the entire levee system would collapse and the lake would pour into New Orleans and the surrounding communities.

    If that happened, it would be underwater for months. And by underwater, I mean up to two stories in many places.

    That scenario would be the end of New Orleans as we know it.

    It's looking like Tropical Storm Hanna could hit Florida late next week and move into the Gulf after that. Sheesh.
