This weekend two strong storms emerged in the Gulf. On a day where we were to remember the three years since Hurricane Katrina our teams were helping families evacuate. Most, if not all, of our families and staff are out by now. Below I've added a series of resources.

The best site for tracking storms is stormpulse. Gustav hit 70 miles South of New Orleans, LA and 130 miles southwest of Biloxi, MS on September 1st. As of 12pm (Sept. 1) there are storm surges of 6-8ft in Biloxi, 9ft in Waveland and the west bacnk of the Industrial Canal levees are being topped over.

Tropical Storm Hanna is currently on course to become a Hurricane on Thursday September 4th and hit landfall on the 5th somewhere from Miami, Florida to Savannah, Georgia.
