Gustav:Current Conditions in Gulfport

Winds are really gusting. Horizontal rain on occasion. There are sporadic power outages across the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The storm surge is coming across Highway 90 in low-lying areas. These areas usually experience flooding in tropical storm conditions. It is nothing like Katrina.

My brother reports a tree fell on his shed. My Mom and sister in Biloxi are doing fine.

Louisiana is taking the brunt. Again, my thoughts and best wishes are with those in harm's way.

Hang in there... Glad the worst is avoiding you. Hope it's gone quickly

Thanks. I hope it's gone quickly as well. The winds have shifted. They are now coming from the south and not the southeast as before.
