Tropical Storm (formerly Hurricane) Gustav is meadering through the Carribean Sea as we speak. This Category 1 hurricane made landfall over Hispanola, weaking to a Tropical Storm, but still packing sustained winds in excess of 60 miles per hour. Current forecasts indicate Gustav is heading for the Gulf of Mexico; more specifically, the Louisiana and Mississippi coastlines.
I am currently working preparedness and response in Baton Rouge. As early as noon today, I may be a Planning liaison to the State. This is not looking good.
