Hurricane Gustav is being called the Storm of the century and mandatory evacuation has been called by the Governor and several Parish Officials.

Hurricane Central http://www.wwlhurricanecentral.com/

Residents were ordered to flee an only partially rebuilt New Orleans Sunday as another monster storm bore down on Louisiana nearly three years to the day after Hurricane Katrina wiped out entire swaths of the city.

Hurricane Gustav, which already killed more than 80 people in the Caribbean, weakened slightly over Cuba and again over the Gulf of Mexico but was expected to regain strength as it moves over warm waters toward the U.S. coast, possibly becoming a top-scale Category 5 hurricane later on Sunday.

FEMA says Gustav soon to be rated Category 5

The government's disaster relief chief says Hurricane Gustav is growing into a monster Category 5 storm.

The storm that hit Cuba Saturday could reach landfall along the Gulf Coast by early Tuesday.

Federal Emergency Management Agency chief David Paulison told reporters several times at a briefing Saturday that the storm was strengthening into a Category 5 hurricane.

FEMA officials said Bill Read, the director of the National Hurricane Center, interrupted an afternoon teleconference involving the agency, Gulf Coast states and the National Weather Service to say he is going to issue a special advisory statement raising Gustav to Category 5. That means winds greater than 155 mph and a storm surge greater than 18 feet above normal.

Word about the Category 5 development reached FEMA shortly before Paulison briefed reporters.

Some NOLA residents can't, won't leave Strapped for cash, some in New Orleans stay and hope. Several New Orleans residents say they can't afford to leave As thousands evacuated New Orleans, a few tourists stuck around for a drink Business owner who left during Katrina says, "I can't leave it again". --CNN

On the morning of August 26, with Gustav still over Haiti, Louisiana emergency preparedness officials met several times to discuss predictions that Gustav would reach the state as a major hurricane in three to five days. Several areas of Louisiana planned for evacuations. Several parishes in the New Orleans area announced plans for mandatory evacuations beginning Saturday, August 30: city mayor Ray Nagin said that it was possible thousands of people who need city help could start leaving on Saturday, as the first wave of a full-scale evacuation.

Officials had finalized evacuation plans, which proposed assisted evacuations as early as August 29: contraflow lanes on all major highways, and 700 buses to help move evacuees. For those evacuees in need of shelter, the state government secured tens of thousands of shelter beds. Unwilling to repeat the mistakes of Hurricane Katrina, the Louisiana Superdome and the New Orleans Convention Center will not be used as emergency shelters.

The following day, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal declared a state of emergency, activating between 3,000 and 8,000 members of the Louisiana National Guard.

Mayor of New Orleans Ray Nagin shortened his appearance at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado to assist in preparations. In Harris County, Texas, Judge Ed Emmett has said that the Reliant Astrodome will not be used as a shelter for evacuees if Hurricane Gustav hits New Orleans, because Houston is also vulnerable to Hurricane Gustav; according to Emmett, it would make more sense to evacuate to a more inland area. Tulane University officials reported that the university will be closed on August 29 and will resume normal business operations on September 3, with classes resuming a day later. Xavier University of Louisiana and Loyola University New Orleans also canceled classes and won't resume until September 4. The University of Louisiana at Lafayette also canceled classes for September 3.

The residents of low-lying Grand Isle, Louisiana were under a voluntary evacuation order beginning Friday, August 29. Traditionally, the community is one of the first to vacate when tropical storms threaten. Residents of lower Cameron Parish, Louisiana were also given a voluntary evacuation order on Friday.

Texas Governor Rick Perry activated 5,000 members of the National Guard on August 29 in response to the possible crisis, in addition to preparations made by other agencies.

Mississippi
On August 27, requests and orders began for evacuations along the Gulf Coast.

Gustav howled into Cuba's Isla de Juventud as a monstrous Category 4 hurricane on Saturday while both Cubans and Americans scrambled to flee the path of the fast-growing storm.

Forecasters said Gustav was just short of becoming a top-scale Category 5 hurricane as it powered its way toward mainland Cuba, where authorities were hurriedly evacuating more than 240,000 people from the nation's tobacco-rich western tip.

The hurricane was projected to plow into the oil-rich Gulf of Mexico at full force Sunday, and reach the U.S. coast as early as Monday afternoon. A hurricane watch was issued from Texas east to Florida, an area that includes New Orleans, which Hurricane Katrina devastated in 2005 and still is not 100% back by any means.

Oil companies completing Gulf evacuations. HOUSTON -Royal Dutch Shell, BP and other oil companies wrapped up evacuations and shut down production Saturday as an intensifying Hurricane Gustav churned toward the petroleum-rich waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
As of midday Saturday, slightly more than three-fourths of the Gulf's oil production and nearly 40 percent of its natural gas output had been shut down, according to the U.S. Minerals Management Service, which oversees offshore activity.

Shell said it was on schedule to complete the evacuation of more than 1,300 workers from 20 production platforms and other facilities by Saturday afternoon. The task took four days and involved 17 helicopters.
BP said it also planned to have its workers evacuated Saturday.

Both oil giants said production was being completely shut off — a process that can involve closing safety valves in thousands of feet of water to prevent the release of oil or natural gas.

 

New Orleans residents have been ordered to evacuate Sunday as the threat from Hurricane Gustav continues to grow. The Category 4 hurricane slammed into Cuba Saturday before entering the Gulf of Mexico.

After a Storm

If you evacuated, have valid identification. You will not be allowed back into your area unless you can show proof of residency.


When re- entering your home, proceed with caution.
Be cautious of fires. Do not strike matches until you are certain there are no gas leaks.
If you're at home, stay there and avoid sightseeing, which can impede emergency and recovery response from officials.

If a power outage occurs, turn off or disconnect all motor- driven appliances and fixtures to avoid damage from sudden surges when power is restored. It's safer to use flashlights than candles.
Beware of snakes, insects and animals driven to higher ground.
Avoid downed or dangling utility wires.
