Photo: Hurricane Gustav's Angle Hints at Widespread Damage



A satellite image shows Hurricane Gustav midway between Cuba and Louisiana at about 4 p.m. ET on Sunday, August 31, 2008. The storm's northwesterly path could mean an unusually long stretch of the U.S. Gulf Coast could feel Gustav's full force.
