Hanna slams Haiti; Carolinas landfall possible on Friday

HANNA

Emergency officials in the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida weighed evacuation orders Tuesday as Tropical Storm Hanna was forecast to make landfall in the U.S. on Friday or Saturday as a possible hurricane with winds up to 100 mph.

In South Carolina, the state Emergency Management Division was monitoring Hanna around the clock, but spokesman Derrec Becker said it was too early Tuesday to call for residents to flee.

Forecast models predict Hanna will hit the coast near Charleston, head north along I-77, then veer east of Charlotte by Saturday morning. 1B

Gustav, which was downgraded Tuesday to a tropical depression, did not wreak the destruction expected when it struck the Gulf Coast on Monday. Officials said Tuesday they were not ready to allow many of the 1.9million Louisiana evacuees to return to their homes. 4A
