The GOP Convention and Gustav

I work for non-profit, disaster service organization. Part of my job is tracking storms and potential natural disasters where relief will be needed. So it is with great interest that I am watching to see what Tropical Storm/Hurricane Gustav will do in the next few days. I think that if it hits the Gulf Coast Sunday/Monday/Tuesday then the GOP Convention becomes a tool in the argument of Republican incompetance (“They continue partying while real Americans suffer.”).

So does anyone know if there is a plan to deal with this kind of situation? Gov Jindal has pre-emptively declared a state of emergency, but he is scheduled to speak on Wednesday. So anyone know what our plan is or any suggestions for what we should do?
