Hurricane Gustav

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has warned that Hurricane Gustav, the third hurricane and seventh named storm of the 2008 season, could reach Category 2 strength before its landfall in Haiti later today. Gustav earlier was moving to the north west at 9 miles per hour and located about 75 miles south-southeast of Haiti. The NHC said Gustav is expected to produce significant rainfall accumulations that may result in life-threatening flash floods and mud slides for  several Caribbean islands, including Jamaica. On its current track, the hurricane would enter the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday. Check out I.I.I. hurricane facts and stats.
