Bad, bad news for those on the Gulf tonight:

Gustav bears down on the Gulf Coast Saturday night.

Gustav bears down on the Gulf Coast Saturday night.

After having been in Gulfport the last two Marches helping families rebuild from Katrina, watching this is not fun.  I really hope lessons have been learned since 2005.

Update: Gustav has come off the island of Cuba and is now expected to strengthen thanks to the Loop Current, an area of abnormally warm water, in the southern Gulf of Mexico.  Landfall is expected to occur along the middle of the Louisiana coast on Monday afternoon.

Gustav as it strengthens over the Gulf of Mexico Sunday morning.
