Gustav Prayer Request

As of right now Hurricane Gustav is headed on a direct path towards Lafourche Parish where I grew up. They are predicting it will be either a Category 3 or possibly even 4 when it hits land which will mean major destruction. Lafourche and all surrounding parishes have been ordered a mandatory evacuation, but of course my family isn't listening as they are all as of now planning on riding it out.

So my first request would be for a change in their decision, and if that doesn't happen then my second request is for their safety.

Sorry to hear about your families decision to ride out the storm. Whatever the winds don't destroy the floods will. I know from experience.
