The National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Gustav is located about 115 miles south-southeast of New Orleans and it continues to move northwest at about 16 mph. That motion is expected to continue through landfall, which is still expected along the central Louisiana coastline.
Maximum sustained winds remain near 115 mph, meaning its still a Category 3 storm, but now the NHC expects no significant change in strength before landfall by noon today.
