Hurricane Gustav has the potential to do more damage than even Hurricane Katrina, the only difference this time though is hospitals are ready.

Many hospitals, when Hurricane Katrina hit, were not able to keep running for more than a few days, as they would run out of power.

Hospitals in New Orleans have been improved though, upgraded with new tools such as new fuel and power additions.

They are expected to be able to run up to 28 days without power if needed.

On top of that, things such as helicopter landing pads, communication improvements, etc. have been added.
