Labor Day In Charlotte- Festivities and Concern for The Gulf Coast

September 1st, 2008 Listed Under: Arts & Culture, Charlotte News, Things To Do Charlotte

School started for most last week, and this Labor Day Monday has our eyes turned to the Gulf Coast, as Louisiana, Texas, Alabama and the pan handle of Florida prepare for what appears to be a major hurricane.

Now for the best map and blog for storms I’ve seen (thanks to my evacuated son Andrew) That’s Hanna on the right.

3 Years after Katrina, is the city better prepared? Clearly, the evacuation orders were taken seriously this time and seem to be progressing well. But what of the levies? Will they hold? Will the newly rebuilt homes, buildings and towns survive?

All good questions to be answered in the next several days and weeks. Thankfully, the coast is deserted.


If its Labor Day in Charlotte, then its Matthews Alive for us, here are a few photos from last year’s festival. They are all thumnails, click to enlarge.
