Keep New Orleans In Your Prayers
If Katrina wasn't enough, now Gustov may hit New Orleans.
Heavenly Father, I pray that you protect those that are in the path of this Hurricane and that they will find refuge and shelter from this storm. You are the geatest protector and there is so much fear and loss that they have already endured. I also pray for those that are in Cuba and other countries. We are all your children no matter where we live. I pray that all will be protected from this mighty storm and that Gustov turns towards the open sea and no longer is able to make threats.
In Your Sons Name, Amen
Here is what Yahoo says about the evacuations that are taking place right now.
NEW ORLEANS - Residents were ordered to flee an only partially rebuilt New Orleans Sunday as another monster storm bore down on Louisiana nearly three years to the day after Hurricane Katrina wiped out entire swaths of the city.
The mandatory evacuation of the city's west bank, where levee improvements remain incomplete, was to begin at 8 a.m., with the east bank to follow at noon. It's the first test of a revamped evacuation plan designed to eliminate the chaos, looting and death that followed Katrina.
The city will not offer emergency services to those who choose stay behind, Nagin said, and there will be no "last resort" shelter as there was during Katrina, when thousands suffered inside a squalid Superdome. The city said in a news release that those not on their property after the mandatory evacuation started would be subject to arrest.
