Earliest return: Thursday Morning.

The latest re-entry information for the metro area - Hurricane Gustav News and Storm Tracking - NOLA.com
ORLEANS: New Orleans residents should not expect to return to their homes until Thursday morning at the soonest, a spokeswoman for Mayor Ray Nagin said Tuesday morning. With an estimated 77,000 Entergy customers blacked out across the city and hospitals still operating below capacity, Ceeon Quiett said New Orleans is not ready to welcome home as many as 300,000 residents who evacuated in advance of Hurricane Gustav.

It's going to cost millions for evacuees to stay out another two nights. I'm not sure this is the best way to handle things.
