UPDATE - Hurricane Gustav - New Orleans Clear headed for Texas

MONDAY 11:29 a.m. update:

We headed out this morning shortly after 7 a.m. just as Hurricane Gustav was coming ashore about 50 miles to the southwest of New Orleans.

Rain, so far, has been spotty. At times, we've been driving through New Orleans without the need of windshield wipers and other times rain has been coming down in sheets.

Across the city, damage so far appears to be very minimal. We saw plenty of downed oak tree limbs on St. Charles Ave. where we met one resident who was without power -- perhaps due to a fallen oak tree that took a power line down with it.

The few people that we did find on the streets this morning, however, we breathing a big sigh of relief. Gustav was downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane and wind gusts in the city seem to be topping out at no more the 60 mph.

Power outages across the city seem to be minimal and spotty as well.

Flooding is also limited to some low lying streets and the park area near Lake Ponchartrain.
