Remember what happened at the end of August three years ago? Her name was Katrina.
Well it's about to happen again, a day or two later than in 2005, only this time his name is Gustav.

If you know people in New Orleans and the Louisana/Alabama Gulf Coast call them and tell them to prepare to leave on Friday or Saturday to avoid the panic and rush.
