Let's say it again....

Despite the spin doctors on both sides; NOLA has been spared.

Gustav will go west.

Sorry Fox, and MSNBC...and CNN. As much as you wanted tragedy in NOLA...it's not gonna' happen.

God Bless!!

    That means it hits the oil refineries and shipping ports in Texas.

    Hello $150 oil.

    FCD,

    Looking at the track on intellicast, it looks like it's still on a direct line for New Orleans. Where did you get the iformation it was heading west?

    PS, I wasn't the one who locked this.

    50x miles west...town called Houma (sp?). Cat I, or below, in NOLA.

    I was worried about that. I have my cousin, his wife, their daughter, her two children, the dog and the cat here, and they live in Houma. The son-in-law stayed there to protect what he could. I wish he had come here too, that's what insurance is for.

    Houma has been viewed as where it will hit land for the past 24 hours or so.
    What's next?

    Sadly, yes.

    I wish this on no one. My point was only the media is so focused on NOLA...looking for those great Heraldo shots again. Sorry media.

    Their all safe here, but I'm really worried about Eric. They talked to him 15 minutes ago and he said it was just starting to rain a little.

    Guess well know more in the morning. It's going to be a long night for Mary and the kids.

    You do realize that the strongest storm surge happens on the side just east of the eye of the storm don't you????????

    In other words you are better off with a direct hit than being within that 50 mile east of the storm area!

    I am no expert on the subject, I am going by what the weather people on our local news here in the carolinas are saying. But they are saying that NO is headed for some of the strongest winds and highest storm surges of this storm!

    i'm not sure but no may be the very best place for it to hit, one it has been evacuated already, two it has not been fully rebuilt since katrina so financually it will not be as bad, we can't say that about cities in texas can we?
