Re: Major Hurricane Gustav Closing in on Louisiana

On visible it really looks like landfall


I know they are busy but would like some confirmation.

Also, worried on how much weather there is far from the center of Gustav and people not expecting tornadoes that far away.

Could be a lot worse, if that cycle had continued..another 3 hours and he may have come in as a Cat 3 though from when I was in Andrew I can tell you knowing the storm went down in windspeed 5 mph does not make you feel a whole lot better.

Beautiful pic for a deadly storm.
