Hurricane Gustav Coming - Get Out of New Orleans


Everyone here at Weather Snob is thinking of everyone in the Gulf Coast - especially those living in New Orleans. Let's hope Gustav decides to slow down and not make landfall in the Gulf Region.

Gustav's passage over Cuba took a toll on its wind speed, but it was heading over warmer Gulf waters, which are expected to reinvigorate the storm, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida.

The storm's passage over Cuba shaved just 15 mph off the top wind speeds reported by the hurricane center before it made landfall on the island. Forecasters believe Gustav will quickly regain that power and more, likely growing to Category 4 status on Sunday.
