Exactly three years after Hurricane Katrina made landfall, Hurricane Gustav was churning in the Gulf of Mexico.
Gulf Coast residents were worried that Gustav could be another Katrina. Thankfully, Gustav didn't pack the punch that Katrina did.
Mayor Billy Skellie of Long Beach, Mississippi says, "Our harbor had some more, little bit of damage, beyond what was there, from Katrina. And we had some municipal buildings damaged, a little bit of road damage, you know, from the surge. Nothing real, real serious."
Skellie said the damage was assessed at roughly $500,000, but the debris cleanup could make that number go up.
