Gustav Weakens to Cat. 2, Levees Holding

By  | 

While it’s way too early to breathe a sigh of relief, the good news is: Hurricane Gustav made landfall at just a category two and the New Orleans levees look like they’re going to hold.

The storm also hit the Louisiana coastline at more of an angle than the direct hit Katrina gave the area. While damage is still expected to be profound, there is hope that we will avoid a catastrophic situation.
