But it's still a serious threat to New Orleans .

to anyone around that area who didn't evacuate, good luck.

I have been watching the satellite of the storm and so far it doesn`t look like its getting any stronger, maybe it will weaken more.

some convection is building on the southern side of the storm, could be indication for strengthening.

It slowed down because it went over Cuba, now it's over warm water. I would expect it to strengthen. I hope I am wrong.

Right. Just like when it hit Haiti then Jamaica - it slowed down (thank heavens for the sake of Cayman) then once it got over warm water it raged again. By the time it was passing Cayman it was building up steam. But do hope it slows down. Best of luck to all along the coast.

It does look like it has weakened but NO will still be hit on the "bad" side of Gustav with the tornadoes and flooding still being a major worry.

115 mph as I type, but don't be blind because of the category, remember FAY (TS) and created more pains than a hurricane....
