Cubbee on phone with me right now...she said there is lots of damage in her area.  She said trees are down everywhere.  She is upset, but she's okay...power may be off for a while...has ice in ice chests. Doesn't have a clue how long she will be without power.

Gustav evacuees urged to stay away
updated 52 minutes ago

NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (CNN) -- Hurricane Gustav didn't pack the wallop of Katrina three years earlier, officials said Monday, but they urged almost 2 million evacuees to stay away from the Gulf Coast for another

"Power lines are down all over the city; there's a significant number of homes and businesses that are without power," Nagin said.

Still, he said, Gustav didn't do the damage feared a few days ago, a possible repeat of 2005's Hurricane Katrina.

"I'd probably call Gustav, instead of the mother of all storms, maybe the mother-in-law or the ugly sister of all storms," Nagin said.

Across Louisiana, more than 800,000 people were without electricity, and some may not see it restored for two weeks or more, Gov. Bobby Jindal said.

At a news conference with Jindal, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff urged Gulf Coast residents who evacuated to stay away until damage could be assessed.

Hi All,
My family and friends are all OK. I live southwest of Lafayette and my daughter lives near Morgan City (near landfall). We had high winds and as of today, we're still getting feeder bands with rain and tornadoes. No damage to my home, just trees, branches and leaves everywhere. My electricty was restored last night but the rest of the area is without. My cable and internet just came back on today.

I spoke to Cubbee last night and she's OK but still doesn't have electricity. It's still cloudy with rain showers, but once the sun comes out, then the heat and humidity will be horrible.

Thanks to all for the prayers. This could have been so much worse.
