Leon County Urges Caution for All, Move to High Ground for Some

Like all counties, Leon County officials are urging their residents to take precaution when it comes to Hurricane Gustav's arrival in Texas and Louisiana.

With heavy rains possible, officials are asking residents in low-lying areas, including along the Trinity River, to prepare to move to higher ground as a result of Gustav.

Officials are also encouraging residents to stock up on supplies and to gas up their vehicles.

Texas Governor Rick Perry has estimated 45,000 evacuees from Louisiana could make their way to Texas in the coming days.
