Following Hurricane Gustav on YouTube

The entire country has been watching as Hurricane Gustav swept through the Caribbean and into the Gulf this weekend, making landfall in Louisiana today. The memories of Hurricane Katrina, the powerful storm that devastated New Orleans exactly three years ago, are still fresh in the minds of area residents. To ensure that no one relived that experience, Louisiana leaders ordered a mandatory evacuation on Saturday that has pushed more than 2 million to leave their homes and seek safer lodgings.

Those living in areas affected by Gustav have been uploading videos documenting the storm from their vantage points -- whether it be from inside their homes, braving the elements in their backyards, or even surveying empty streets while riding on a bike.

Check out this playlist of Hurricane Gustav videos, and keep coming back to see the latest footage uploaded from the ground.
