Gustav maintains strength...


...but does not appear to be intensifying. It is on track toward Houma, LA. Because hurricanes can do funny things, we shouldn't think New Orleans is completely out of the woods yet. The West Bank will likely get flooding. On TV I saw a West Bank family that decided to stay and ride out the storm. At least they were well prepared with a generator and boats. So they should be OK, although it does not sound like a wise decision. I'll find out when I wake up, if the track has been maintained. New Orleans could get sustained hurricane force winds of upwards of 85 mph. There will be damage in New Orleans, but Houma will take a beating, as well as areas south of Houma.
