Nice 5 day forecast at the Weather Underground for Gustav.
Looks now to be heading for New Orleans.

Five days out that will almost certainly shift.

Maybe Gustav just wants to attend the GOP Convention.
Seriously though, another CAT 3 hit on New Orleans would pretty
much finish it economically. There would be a huge hue and cry
against public money going towards ANOTHER re-building.

Maybe we should start a pool. :(

I can safely report to everyone that FEMA has our backs and is actively spending your money as we speak.
One of the companies I own provides a service that is needed both pre and post calamity and this morning we received the call from FEMA to activate our services. Since FEMA doesn't know where it will ultimately land, we are getting assets from most of the southern states and beginning tomorrow to stage them Near New Orleans.

We really need an Icon for :ROFL:
I'm thinking... "FEMA's got our backs " as Gustav zooms in to the Gulf.
I feel so much safer...
double positive "Yea, Right !"

Oil Rigs in the Gulf from Jeff Master's Blog at Weather Underground
Looks like JPG's and Images don't display here yet, but if you scroll down, you'll see a depiction of where the Oil Rigs are located... and Gustav seems to be heading right into them.

The Ultimate Disaster
GUSTAV ON THE WAY FOR LOUISIANA... HANNA WILL FOLLOW BEHIND, HITTING SOUTH FLORIDA, THEN THE GULF COAST...
For some reason my mind was stuck on the fact that the Republican Convention was going to be in Florida and not St. Paul. Sorry about the confusion... In any case, the fact that we have two storms that will hit the United States could be the ultimate disaster for this country. Gustav, as we all know by now, is coming and will hit somewhere in Louisiana as at least a Cat 2 with potential for Cat 4. New Orleans is obviously in the spotlight given that several models still show they will get hit. I think that the central Louisiana coast is more likely to get hit by Gustav than the New Orleans area.
The real concern that I have, and I have shown that on the image below, is the double hit, by first Gustav, then Hanna, on the Gulf Coast, followed by the flood threats into the Ohio Valley. The image posted below shows the areas of threats for next week given the tracks of both storms. This is not a very good scenario for our country. First, Gustav will hit and cause major damage, followed by serious flooding, then Hanna will come along and hit the Gulf Coast as a major hurricane, followed by serious flooding. And that might not be the end. We still have another wave coming off Africa that, speaking with Joe Bastardi, could be a concern for the East Coast in two weeks.
I will try to do videos this week and keep people up-to-date on what is going to happen.

Caonacl, I am sure you have been paying more attention to this than I have. Are these storms and hurricanes getting worse every year, or are we just more tuned into the weather reports. Sometimes I get the feeling the gods are serious about sinking New Orleans.
