New Orleans was all but empty as hundreds of thousands of people fled the U.S. Gulf coast in anticipation of Hurricane Gustav's arrival early Monday afternoon. Bush canceled plans to attend the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., and Republican officials revamped their plans for the event. Forcasters said weather conditions would keep the storm's intensity below Category 4, but dangerous nonetheless.
