Gustav update

Here's the latest update on Gustav's projected path. They're guessing the coast of Louisiana will get the worst of it. The Governor of New Orleans was asking to send all of the evacuees here to Houston again, and our Governor had to turn them down. A lot of the reason was because the meteorologists still think there is a chance it could shift more towards Houston, and then all the evacuees would be here and that would cause absolute chaos. Not only would they have to worry about helping it's own residents, but it would also have to be responsible for the thousands of refugees from New Orleans and there would be no room in shelters for our own people. It's kind of sad that we had to turn them away, but I guess you gotta do what you gotta do in a situation like this.

It sounds like we'll still get some winds and rain, but it should be okay. So, please keep the people of Louisiana in your prayers next week, especially those who don't have the money or resources to evacuate. This weekend is the third anniversary of Katrina. We hope that they've learned from Katrina and are more prepared now....but you just never know what will happen.
