Here are some photos from Baton Rouge after Hurricane Gustav passed through. I've been meaning to post this for awhile now. Baton Rouge is about an hour and a half East of where I live. Most of the damage shown in these photos is from downed trees. You can click on the first photo and then scroll through with arrows.

When we got back to our office after the storm was over, my boss told us that an elderly couple who lived down the street from his parents in Abbeville, LA had evacuated to Baton Rouge. They went to their daughter's house. They did not want to evacuate their home. Unfortunately, they were killed when a tree fell on the house. Their home in Abbeville survived the storm. There is a picture of that house is in the second group of photos from the "Other Areas around Metro Baton Rouge". It is photo #8.
