We are in it – and watching. A satellite image provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shows Hurricane Gustav as it nears the Louisiana coast at 3:15 a.m. EDT, Sept. 1, 2008.
Sen. Barack Obama said that he plans to mobilize his huge e-mail list of supporters to volunteer or send money once the impact of Hurricane Gustav becomes apparent and authorities know better what kind of help is needed.
Said Obama: “We can activate an e-mail list of a couple million people who want to give back. I think we can get tons of volunteers to travel down there if it becomes necessary.”
