Man hauls bags down Bourbon Street in New Orleans ahead of Hurricane Gustav
A man hauls bags down Bourbon Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana, ahead of Hurricane Gustav's arrival, August 31, 2008. Hurricane Gustav churned toward the Louisiana coast through the oil-rich Gulf of Mexico on Sunday with strength that could rival 2005's Hurricane Katrina, prompting low-lying New Orleans to begin evacuation.
