Hooked - (Stacia Naquin)
Updated: 10/11/2013 - I'm SO CLOSE to being able to do a pull-up. So my trainer introduced something new into my training.
Hurricane Gustav crossed over western Cuba on Saturday evening. While Gustav did weaken slightly, it has reemerged over the southern Gulf of Mexico, and intensified again. Gustav has winds over 140mph, with some gusts approaching 170mph. Gustav continues to move northwest at 10 to 15 mph, and should continue this track through Sunday. Gustav will remain over the very warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, which supplies fuel to the already impressive storm. Thus, we expect Gustav to make landfall late Monday, as a category 4 storm. This means sustained winds over 130 mph, with gusts over 160mph. While the exact location of the impending landfall is still uncertain, it looks like southeast Louisiana is in the storms' crosshairs. Flooding rains, a big storm surge ( 15 to 25 feet ), damaging winds, and tornadoes will occur where and near the storm when it makes landfall.
For the official track of Gustav, check out our Weather Blog, on our Weather Page.
