Hurricane update - 26 August

Hurricane Gustav is approaching the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince from the south with winds of 90 mph and higher. The storm will lose a little of its strength in traversing the southwestern peninsula of Haiti, but is then expected to intensify to (at least) category 3 strength on its approach to eastern Cuba. Gustav will pass to the south of the island. The forecast for the end of the week is full of uncertainty, and whether this hurricane will make it into the Gulf of Mexico cannot be ruled in or out.
