Forecasters said Gustav could hit Category 5 — the highest on the Saffir-Simpson scale used to rate tropical cyclones — with winds above 155 mph (249 kph) on Sunday. It was expected to make landfall Monday along the U.S. Gulf coast, and authorities issued a hurricane watch from eastern Texas to the Alabama-Florida border
Doesn't sound promising, at the very least it appears its going to be a category 4. Katrina if you remember was a 4/5. I rmemebr them saying it slowed down before landfall which may have saved New Orleans from complete annihilation.
