This is serious stuff, folks. Hurricane Gustav has hit 150 mph (241 km/h), sustained which means it is only 5 mph shy of being a category 5 hurricane.
Weather authorties believe at this time that New Orleans is where landfall will be. Gulf waters are very warm right now which will strengthen this storm. A 30 foot storm surge is expected where it hits.
FEMA sent in some 700 buses to evacuate people, and there were provisions being made for pets. Many perished in the devastation that followed Katrina because they could not take their pets with them. The government has comprehended this aspect of evacuation.
Let's not forget our brothers and sisters in Cuba and other islands being hammered right now with those 150 mph winds. Please pray for those suffering and for the souls of those who are called home during this, and other severe weather.
