This image shows the current tracks for Hurricane Gustav and tropical storm Hanna on the Wundermap, part of the Weather Underground site. It uses Google Earth to show topography and has all the names of the places as well. It looks like Gustav is going to make landfall between New Orleans and Houston, which would be ideal, because that is the least populated area for it to go. I-10, which connects the two cities, had the "contra lanes" open last night when we left our party. In other words, all the lanes of I-10 were west only, from New Orleans to just east of Houston. There was a lot of traffic on it, but it was moving well.
