Hurricane Gustav 2:00 on Sunday

He is a big storm and you can see where he’s going.  We started getting rain yesterday and expect more bands to come through today.  It’s off and on gusty in the 20-30 mph range in Orlando.

One thing to pay attention to is if this storm drifts to the west, it could come in at a steep angle.  It may not make much of a change in New Orleans as they will get the brunt of it almost no matter what.  But if it comes in at the steep angle, that makes it stronger as it moves into Texas.  Houston will need to watch for that.

My fiend Kevin shared some good resources to track the storm including a guy riding it out in New Orleans, blogging and twittering.

    hey Rob, great blog about the storm. Sitting here NE of Houston in Humble Texas, watching closely. I think (key word is think) the most we have to worry about will be some rain, possibly heavy if Gustav stalls in NE Texas. I have family in Eunice La, and if it follows the current projected path, it will pass directly over Eunice. They are pretty far inland, north of I-10 and east of Lake Charles. I talked with an Aunt living there this morning and they have battened down the hatches.

    Hoping and praying for the best for all involved.
