Hurricane winds could hit Louisiana by Monday morning
As forecasters warned Hurricane Gustav could hit Louisiana on Monday with devastating effect, officials pleaded with Gulf Coast residents to flee and Republicans said they'd abbreviate the opening day of their national convention.
As of 5 p.m. ET, the eye of the Category 3 storm was about 215 miles south-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River, the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, said.
Hurricane-force winds could hit Louisiana's southern coast by sunrise Monday, and the storm's center could hit southwest of New Orleans by early Monday afternoon, CNN meteorologists said.

Thank God it looks like Cuba took a lot of wind out its sails. Probably still going to be a Cat 3 when it hist. But that’s a lot better than the high end Cat 4 or maybe even 5 some were worrying about.

Prayers for all in the storm’s path. May God calm the winds and seas and spare the people who have suffered so much already.

I’m sick about this and made even sicker that some see this as evidence that “God is on our side” by sending Gustav to hit at the opening of the GOP convention. Enough with the politics already - these are people.

quote of former National Chairman of the Democratic National Committee Don Fowler
“Let the reader, where we are equally confident, stride on with me; where we are equally puzzled, pause to investigate with me; where he finds himself in error, come to my side; where he finds me erring, call me to his side. So that we may keep to the path, in love, as we fare on toward Him, ‘whose face is ever to be sought.’” August 31, 11:12 pm | [comment link]

If it does the damage of which it is capable, the storm will remind others what many of us said long ago, that New Orleans should never have been rebuilt. It is simply too vulnerable. The rebuilding of New Orleans is not a sign of the indomitable human spirit, it is a sign that people who think they are greater than Mother Nature are doomed to discover how far wrong they are.
