Category 4 Gustav tracking toward Miss-Louisiana coast…

Good morning, Netizens...

It's now official. Hurricane Gustav is a Category 4 hurricane as of an hour ago, and strengthening.

As you can see from the projected track it may follow it appears destined to hit New Orleans nearly dead-on, barring a change of direction. Yesterday they held memorial services in New Orleans for the memory of Hurricane Katrina victims after that storm hit parts of Mississippi and Louisiana 3 years ago yesterday.

If Gustav stays on-course and continues to build, it could hit the same areas of both states that were devastated by Katrina, perhaps as powerful as a Category 4 or 5 hurricane.

It should be noted that, as of 1:00 PM PDT this afternoon, there are already preliminary storm walls from the back side of Gustav hitting the Florida Coast as severe thunderstorms and rain squalls.
