In case you folks have not been watching, Gustav is steaming right at New Orleans--almost 3 years to the day Katrina hit. Gustav is now looking to be a CAT 5 hurricane by tommorrow am, and there are rumors that this might end up being the storm of the century. (I am involved with CERT, SART and k9 SAR teams, so have been watching this storm closely). Also, concern is growing that Hanna will likely hit the east coast somewhere--and its not known yet at what strength. Its entirely possible that we may have two major hurricanes strike the US within a week of each other. For you folks on the east coast, I would suggest you monitor NOAA and CNN for the next week..... please see the story on the full evacuation: http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/weather/08/30/gustav.prepare/index.html Some of you may recall that during Katrina--law abiding citizens had their firearms seized, and gangs of thugs were assaulting citizens.
