Gustav is now predicted to top out as a Category 3 Hurricane
Hurricane Gustav is predicted to make landfall today near New Orleans. I think we can all remember the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina just three short years ago. I met a man today on the bus to the put-in on the Nantahala River in North Carolina whose aunt lives in Metairie, LA, and who still has not yet finished rebuilding from the devastation of Katrina. Now here comes Gustav. Mercifully, Gustav is predicted to top out now as a Category 3 Hurricane with maximum sustained winds near 130 mph.
Pray for all those evacuating the Gulf Coast.
Pray for all those who have lost everything once from Katrina.
Pray for all those who are about to lose everything again from Gustav.
Pray for New Orleans.
Pray that the levees hold.
Pray for our country.
I know that we care about what's happening in South Ossetia. I know we all care about Human Rights in Tibet. I know we all care about Darfur and flooding in Bangladesh and this earthquake and that genocide. But charity begins at home.
Thanks for reading.
