    I've been really worried about the people in USA who will be dealing with hurricane Gustav. CNN reporters are saying that it will as strong or even stronger than hurricane Katrina. Thankfully, most people from New Orleans have already evacuated. God, I'm just praying that many lives are not lost this time. :sad:

    whereabouts is it supposed to hit?

    That'd be wonderful if it could take me.

    right now i'd have to say i feel the same.
    i see so much human suffering. i feel like, i hope the suffering ends. either way, i don't think i'll be too shaken up, even if it hits my area (which it probably won't)

    New Orleans is getting hammered yet again. It's sad to see after Hurricane Katrina just a few years ago.

    Um, aren't you in Connecticut? :laugh: I don't think it's going to go all the way up there.

    Anyway, no one should still be in the city. They had a mandatory evacuation, and if someone was stupid enough to not leave, they deserve whatever happens to them.

    Last time Katrina happened people couldn't afford to leave because they were so poor. They had no choice but to stay, do they deserve whatever?

    A lot of people who are left are too poor or too old to leave. Of the 150 nursing homes in the area 84 have been evacuated.

    If you have the means, it is pretty easy to leave your FEMA trailer behind.

    This really is quite sad for them :sad: I mean they were just starting to get their lives back and now it looks like it's down the drain again.

    Gustav is supposed to hit Louisiana for the most part. Texas, Mississippi, and Florida will be affected too. My friend Ashley just evacuated from Florida. She was there for the weekend on vacation in Destin, FL. They had to evacuate because Gustav was supposed to hit near there and they didn't want to take any chances. She said that there had already been some problems with Gustav, extremely strong winds and heavy rain. It's caused several wrecks and whatnot around the area. She was actually able to take some pictures of the hurricane, she sat and watched it move across the water from the balcony of their resort. She also took a few pictures of the debris and fallen trees and whatnot around there. Gustav was a category five on Saturday. But, Sunday it dropped to a category three. She said that they are expecting it to either stay a three or drop to a two before it actually hits land. Either way, it will still be a very destructive hurricane.

    Over 3 million people have evacuated the coast and so far three people have died during the evacuation. Those three people were fatally ill before Gustav tho, so their death wasn't because of Gustav.

    I have friends in both Texas and Louisianna and I'm praying for them. They already have their own personal storms to deal with and then this too. I hear Hurricane Hannah is right behind Gustav!! Buckle down folks.... it's going to be a bumpy ride!!!! I pray that all are careful and that the storms pass quickly.

    At least hurricane Gustav wasn't as bad as CNN had predicted. Many people died, but it was nothing like the hurrican Katrina tragedy.

    They need our prayers and hopes for safety and care once again. This time is far worse than the last. Mandatory evacuations, curfew etc. The hurricane is expected to hit about late friday. To all the members who are trying to and are going to have to face this terrible storm, you are in my thoughts and prayers and that the storm passes and we find you safe. Please please be safe K my door is wide open and the worst you would have to face here is a few teenagers and a 3 year old!!!! (lol).

    They have a mandatory evacuation for my city and surrounding cities, Galveston island was already evacuated, and now they are getting us out which is about 18 miles from the island. Im not leaving Im going to ride it out I think. They have a city wide curfew that as of 5 pm I think Friday, no one can be out until the immediate threat passes. This should be interesting. I dont ask for much, but I would like to ask all who are believers to keep people around me safe whether I know them or not, I dont want anyone hurt. Its bad when they started evacuating days almost a week before hand. I just want everyone safe. Thanks.

    I'm really worried about and scared for the members that are dealing with this hurricane as I write this. So much potential for extreme damage and loss. I pray to God that he watches over each and every one and keeps them save from harm. Please be safe all of you!!!

    I'm hoping and praying to God that hurricane Ike doesn't cause much damage like Gustav. I pray that the evacuations go smoothly and that people can evacuate safely. To everyone who will be affected by Ike, you are all in my prayers. :hug:
