As of 10:40AM, it still isn’t raining in Alexandria (though we’ve had a few sprinkles), but the wind is definitely picking up. Gustav made landfall as a Category 2– obviously not as intense as Katrina or Rita.

CNN is reporting that levees are breaching in the Lower Ninth, and the Industrial Canal levee is overturning.

It also appears as if Gustav is making a (nearly) direct hit on Cocodrie, Louisiana– which was devastated during Hurricane Andrew and is the home of LUMCON (Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium), one of the leading research facilities on coastal restoration.

KALB is offering live streaming video.
