FEMA Pleased With Gustav Reponse

New Orleans misses brunt of weakened Hurricane Gustav

Hurricane Gustav, the storm system that packed 110-mph winds and that some feared would deliver massive damage to New Orleans, weakened and all but missed the fabled city and never quite packed the punch of Hurricane Katrina, its notorious predecessor.

While Gustav did strike Cocodrie, the heart of Louisiana‘s fishing and oil industry, early reports of damage showed far less devastation than three years ago, when Katrina, a Category 3 storm, snapped levees and drenched New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward, St. Bernard Parish and other low-lying areas.

    NEWSWIRE–New Orleans missed the worst of hurricane Gustav, escaping the flooding caused in 2005 by Katrina.

    In Gustav, FEMA saw a chance:
    They’d demonstrate there’d been reform.
    Now, critics have relaxed their stance,
    In spite of qualms before the storm.

    Light verse, ripped from the headlines
