Gustav hits Baton Rouge

This is a problem for everyone in Lousiana, since Baton Rouge is the staging area for first response elsewhere in the state. Accoring to CNN, the FEMA command center lost power temporarily, and may now be running on emergency generators.

Your blogstress was in Baton Rouge less than two weeks after Hurricane Katrina, and it's hard to overstate the role of the Red Stick in managing such a crisis.

UPDATE: Turns out, according to CNN, that a transformer was blown, and the power company was able to reroute power to the command center.
