    Re: Hurricane Gustav

    It weakened down to 140 MPH, but it's expected to ramp back up as it hits open water in the Gulf. I hope the Cubans made it through okay.

    Let's hope the losses and damages are minimal.

    Re: Hurricane Gustav

    The New Orleans mayor is on TV right now calling this the storm of the century. Says people have never seen a storm this strong and they expect it to only get stronger due to 90 degrees waters in the Gulf of Mexico. He's calling for a mandatory evacuation tomorrow morning.

    Re: Hurricane Gustav

    New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin ordered the mandatory evacuation of New Orleans, while Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal warned residents that the state "could see flooding worse than Hurricane Katrina," as Gustav approached the Gulf Coast.

    Re: Hurricane Gustav

    Winds have dropped to 135 mph but the storm is expected to strengthen into a category five sometime tomorrow. It also looks like it has jogged a bit to the east.

    Re: Hurricane Gustav

    Winds have dropped to 120 but they are still saying it's expected to strengthen into a strong cat. 4 or 5. Some guy on Fox just said it could become a full force Cat. 5 sometime today.

    The guy on MSNBC says it appears the storm may be shifting to the east a bit.

    Would that mean it would be going more towards New Orleans?

    If the path remains the same New Orleans is still expected to get pounded, but forecasters say if it moves 25-30 miles east it would be the worst case scenario for New Orleans. Let's hope that doesn't happen.

    Re: Hurricane Gustav

    New update. The winds remain the same but the pressure dropped which indicates the storm is strengthening. The meteorologist on CNN just said the storm is 440 miles wide...that's crazy.

    Looks like the storm may have jogged slightly west.

    It's fair to say that FEMA and the Federal and State government agencies involved in the early days of Katrina failed miserably.

    It was a monumental collapse from top to bottom as the world watched New Orleans' misery.

    It's also fair to say that this time they are ready. They learned from the brutal public failures of Katrina.

    This is the greatest CYA fest I've ever seen. Every agency involved is locked and loaded.

    We'll see how it goes once the storm comes ashore. But for now, they're incredibly well prepared.
