Link & Resources to Track Hurricane Gustav

Written by: Brian Neudorff

As of 9 a.m. EDT, Hurricane Gustav has been downgraded to a category 2 hurricane as the eyewall, or what there is of one, moved . In my opinion this was the strength of Gustav the last several hours. Maximum sustain winds are down to 110 mph and it is still moving NW at 16 mph.

Here are some of storm the reports out of Louisiana: @ 8:15 a.m. EDT on Grand Isle reported wind speed of 105 mph. There were also reports of storm surge of 4 to 8 feet waves.
