I just saw a slideshow of pictures on yahoo of the effects of Hurricane Gustav and some of them look pretty bad.

Also, feel free to post pictures of the hurricane and its effects on here.

Also, I just heard that the London Canal gates have been closed in New Orleans as they have been triggered by the 4 feet of water there. If it reaches 5 feet, then the water could spill over. Right now though, there is no major flooding in New Orleans other than some minor flooding in the ninth ward.

Also, the mayor in New Orleans said that it is too early for evacuees to come back tomorrow, but homecoming is days away, and not weeks away like it was with Katrina.
