About 5 minutes before the special edition of 360 started, the very first band of Gustav rolled in.
And boy was it a shocker.
We weren't expecting it to start that early, and it effectively knocked out our live shot and phone communications for a few minutes. One of the joys of covering a story created by Mother Nature.
