While Gustav is not nearly the storm that it was yesterday, it is still a Category 3 Hurricane. Sustained wind speeds are near 120mph, with gusts to 160mph. Gustav is still trucking to the northwest at 18mph, and will likely slow down as it approaches land. Not good news, as the forecast slowing will prolong the effects of Gustav. Once again, I have displayed some important maps below:
