Hurricane Gustav hits US coast

From AFP, it seems like Gustav did lose a little steam before land fall:

Despite a slight weakening of Gustav as it neared the coast, forecasters warned of an "extremely dangerous" surge of up to 4.2 meters (14 feet), not as high as earlier predicted but still enough to worry locals after Hurricane Katrina burst New Orleans' levees in 2005 and flooded the city for days.
