Hurricane Gustav

Fay, alternating between storm, depression and hurricane is raining itself out over the South, bringing drought relief to many areas, leaving in its wake record rainfalls and area-wide flooding in northern Florida. Now comes Gustav.

Hurricane Gustav intensified remarkably overnight, and is poised to deliver a heavy blow to Haiti early this afternoon as a Category 1 or 2 hurricane. Gustav intensified from a tropical depression at 11 am yesterday to a Category 1 hurricane last night in just 16 hours, tying Hurricane Humberto’s record–set just last year–for the fastest intensification from first advisory to a Category 1 hurricane.
