    Gustav charges toward deserted Gulf Coast

    2 million flee as Category 3 storm takes aim near Katrina-hit New Orleans

    [​IMG]

    NEW ORLEANS - Hurricane Gustav charged toward the largely deserted coast of Louisiana early Monday morning and seemed destined to make landfall west of a city still recovering three years after Katrina's devastating blow.

    Those who heeded the days of warnings to get out watched from shelters and hotel rooms hundreds of miles away, praying the powerful Category 3 storm and its 115-mph winds would pass without the same deadly toll.


    "We're nervous, but we just have to keep trusting in God that we don't get the water again," said Lyndon Guidry, who hit the road for Florida just a few months after he was able to return to his home in New Orleans. "We just have to put our faith in God."

    I didn't have a lot of faith in the re-election of Nagin, but this time looks much better. :tup:


    They would be hard pressed to take another direct hit right now. Glad the Nawlins folks are being spared the brunt of it. :yes:
