Gustav is on its way. Be prepared.

Here’s the latest:

According to KALB, it appears as if Gustav will make landfall as either a strong Cat 2 or a borderline Cat 3. This is a serious storm, and no doubt, it will do some serious damage. For those of us in Alexandria, here’s what you need to know:

It looks like Gustav will make landfall in between Houma and Lafayette. It should start raining here around noon, but we won’t be experiencing the hurricane (which, by then, should be a Cat 2) until after the sun has set.

And it will probably be with us throughout the night and into the early morning hours.

So be prepared for a night (and a morning) without electricity.

Stay safe.
