Hurricane Preparation – part 3 (see part 1 and 2 below)

Hurricane Gustav is starting to get the attention of the country, and as reported this morning on CNN

Since track forecasts are always subject to large errors at three to five days, it is simply impossible at this time to determine exactly where and when Gustav will make final landfall,” the hurricane center’s forecasters said.

it would be no surprise if rapid intensification occurred and Gustav became a Category 4 or 5 hurricane by 72 hours.

The overaching path of the storm sees it drifting even further west than yesterday, but watch the computer models, not just the single picture of the projected storm cone.  Three of the models project the storm to hit much closer to us.  The other three models tend to make it more of a threat to our Houston campus.
