As we watch and hope that Gustav decreases in speed (it's been degraded to a Category 3 hurricane, but is expected to increase to a Category 4 hurricane again later today), we wanted to share some important information for those who may need assistance:
First of all, Louisiana residents can dial 211 if they need shelter, while residents in other states (like here in Texas) should dial 1-866-438-4636.
Here is a great page to help you track the storm.
