Video: Live Stream of Hurricane Gustav from Houma Louisiana

I’m not sure how long this will last but it might be good for a laugh until Gustav hits. Unfortunately for these guys, however, riding out Gustav in Houma probably won’t be good for any laughs. You might be able to find additional video here if this feed stops.

Michael Moore: Gustav is Proof That There is a God in Heaven

The compassionate one shows his true colors:

Sometime you really have wonder at what cost some are willing to see their political ideology advanced.

To liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, the bounds are seemingly endless. Moore has made a recent career out of attacking President George W. Bush, bashing conservatives and criticizing business. His latest outrage occurred on MSNBC’s August 29 “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” and when he commented about the coincidental timing of an unfortunate disaster – the potential for Hurricane Gustav to make landfall at the beginning of the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn.

“I was just thinking, this Gustav is proof that there is a God in heaven,” Moore said, laughing. “To have it planned at the same time – that it would actually be on its way to New Orleans for day one of the Republican Convention, up in the Twin Cities – at the top of the Mississippi River.”

Wind Gusts Over 211 MPH Recorded in Paso Real de San Diego as Hurricane Slams Island

Thankfully, it looks like Cuba’s evacuation prevented the kind of massive casualties one would usually expect in a storm of this magnitude:

Strong gusts of wind over 340-km/hour were felt in the Paso Real de San Diego zone after the hurricane hard hit the Los Palacios municipality; although there is also considerable damage in other areas like Candelaria, San Cristobal and Bahia Honda. The hurricane’s strong winds are also being felt in the province capital city and other localities.

The Provincial Defense Council insists on the protection of the population in order to avoid human losses. More than 147,900 people were evacuated in Pinar del Rio, most of them went to the homes of neighbours and relatives as is usual among Cubans who always show their solidarity in the face of hurricanes.

And Gustav could strengthen before hitting the Gulf Coast…
