Via Drudge, My Way News reports that Gustav may skirt New Orleans, saving it from the worst case scenario.
A weakened Hurricane Gustav closed in on flood-prone coastal Louisiana Monday, bringing punishing wind and sheets of rain. But the storm veered away from New Orleans, where only a few holdouts and those that refused to abandon Bourbon Street remained.
Much better.CNN reports that, although it’s still pretty ugly, the hurricane has been downgraded to a category 2 storm.
Gustav’s top winds weakened to 110 mph (177 kph), downgrading it to a Category 2 storm, the NHC said.
