Hurricane Gustav – New Orleans May Face Mandatory Evacuations

Rescue workers were considering evacuating New Orleans as it faced a hurricane threat three years to the day that Katrina devastated the city.

Tropical storm Gustav, which is expected to strengthen into a hurricane, hit Jamaica on Thursday after leaving 67 people dead in Hispaniola, the island divided between Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

The US states of Texas and Louisiana put their national guards on standby, and New Orleans said a mandatory evacuation might be necessary.
