Looks like New Orleans has escaped a direct hit, although Houma got hit pretty hard. From what I read earlier the 9th ward has some flooding but for the most part the city escaped with a glancing blow. The video has some photos taken in the New Orleans are before during and after the storm.
I just came across this story a few minutes ago. Four people fleeing Hurricane Gustav were killed in an accident on I-20 right near where I live the other night/morning. Unless I have to be at my Tallapoosa store I generally stay off of 20 so didn’t even hear about it until several hours later. I feel bad for the folks. From what I understand they had been driving for quite a while and fell asleep, although that’s just hearsay.
