Hurricane Gustav finally made landfall today south-west of New Orleans. Thankfully, as the Weather Nerd points out, New Orleans should turn out okay but also:
Let’s all remember that there’s more to Louisiana than New Orleans, and just because our teevees show us that there’s no damage in the French Quarter doesn’t mean people aren’t suffering elsewhere.
Hanna became a hurricane today south of the Bahamahs and Tropical Depresion 9 (to become Ike) formed out in the eastern waters. Ike looks to follow Hanna’s path slightly so we’ll just have to keep an eye on him as well.
Hopefully Hanna won’t be a huge mess as it looks to land between Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC. I know the upstate of SC will be hoping Hanna will fulfill the promise Fay didn’t keep and come on up and dump some much needed rain there.
