Hurricane Gustav Makes Landfall in Haiti

Hurricane Gustav, the seventh named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, has made landfall in Haiti.  The country is still reeling from the effects of Tropical Storm Fay which killed ten Haitian citizens a little over a week ago.

Currently, the storm is classified as a category 1 hurricane, but forecasters expect it to evolve into a category 2 by Wednesday evening.

The hurricane is headed toward Cuba which, like Haiti, is still cleaning up after Tropical Storm Fay.

Massive rainfall is expected to produce flash floods and mudslides in Hispaniola, Jamaica, and Cuba.

Forecasters suggest that Gustav may become a category 3 hurricane sometime over the next few days.

  1. We were mostly inconvenienced by Fay, but our yard was so flooded, the ants, seeking a dry place, I guess) invaded our home, and even somehow got inside our car, so we have been fighting ants; the stinging kind, by the way, it is time to get out the bug spray.
