Gustav note

Have a look at the Crown Weather Services website for just about every possible link, map, chart, graph, notice or advisory on Hurricane Gustav. It's worth checking out just for how comprehensive it is. You can ignore the open .txt prompt, unless you're a total storm geek.

Gustav could very well be the Big One, making Katrina look like a warm-up. All indications are that the eye will pass to the west of New Orleans, which does not bode well for the city. The eastern side of a hurricane always delivers the worst of the wind and rain. We may very well lose one of the urban gems of our world. For real, this time.

Update: The page is loading slow. It must be getting hit hard. You'll have to wait a bit to get the maps.

Thanks, Crow!
