There is a hurricane warning is place from Cameron, LA to the AL/FL border. That means you can expect Hurricane force winds within the next 24 hours.
This is the presentation given to the people of Terrebonne Parish by Maurice Wolcott of the LSU AgCenter. He basically takes Hurricane Rita and puts her on a different path. It shows storm surge and has some interesting photoshops involved.
Below you will find other parishes:
Lafourche Parish, south of the Golden Meadow flood gates, is currently under a voluntary evacuation. That includes Grand Isle. It will become a Mandatory Evacuation order at 9AM tomorrow, and the rest of the parish will follow at 3PM.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
As a measure of preparation in the event of Hurricane Gustav, I thought I would take the time to send this message to each of you. I do not think that we should be in a stage of panic but a stage of preparation; you should gather your important information, ie, birth certificates, social security cards, home owners insurance papers, mortgage papers, and anything else of importance and place them in a storage device to take with you. You should also at this time be engaged in conversation with your family to discuss possible destination points in the event of an evacuation. There has been no clear point as to where Gustav will eventually make landfall; however, I am one to believe that it is better to be over prepared than ill prepared.
Please know that parish officials are preparing for all possiblities of Gustav. I BEG of you to follow any and all directions given by parish officials as it pertains to Hurricane Gustav.
Most of you have my cell phone number and home number should you need to contact me, and for those of you who do not my numbers are 985-870-0847 cell and 985-853-2079 home.
