Apparently, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has an interactive, animated map showing the path of Hurricane Gustav as it nears the American mainland.

Here is more Gustav-related material, courtesy of Boing Boing.

In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  2. Thousands flee Hurricane Gustav

    Hundreds of thousands of people have been fleeing the southern US coast as Hurricane Gustav approaches land.

    Authorities have ordered the evacuation of New Orleans and an estimated 1.9 million people along the Gulf coast have been heading inland.

    The Category Three storm is expected to make landfall at midday local time.

    The storm has prompted the Republicans to scale back their national convention where John McCain is due to accept the party’s nomination for president.

    President George W Bush and Vice-President Dick Cheney have scrapped plans to address the event in St Paul, Minnesota on Monday.

    The Republican National Convention is still going to kick off tomorrow, despite previous talk about delaying it because of Hurricane Gustav. It’s currently a Category 3 storm, but folks in the area fear it might gain force before hitting land sometime on Monday. While the RNC won’t be delayed, the hurricane is altering plans for the event.
