Shelter from the storm

The old Western Electric / Lucent / whatever plant on the west side of Oklahoma City has been opened up as a shelter for evacuees from Hurricane Gustav (and presumably Hanna, now that she’s been promoted), and about 2000 folks escaping the wrath of the storm have now arrived.

Meanwhile, the Highway Patrol is dispatching airboats and rescue boats to southern Louisiana to assist with rescue efforts, and the Military Department has sent troops, a cargo plane and a helicopter; the Air Force has announced that seven C-17 cargo aircraft are being sent from Altus Air Force Base.
