Pi" o t ect i o n ’Extreme’ Danger to Gulf Coast Gazette Leased Wires NEW ORLEANS - Rejuvenated Hurricane Carmen, carrying winds and gusts of 130-160 miles per hour pushed through the Gulf of Mexico Saturday toward an expected landfall at sunset at the mouth of the Mississippi river. The National Weather Service called the storm “extremely dangerous.” It said Carmen was expected to strike the Gulf Coast somewhere along the 125 miles between Grand Isle, La., and Mobile, Ala. Carmen was moving north at 12 to 15 m p h., and was expected to maintain that speed and direction during the day, forecasters said. They said Carmen was likely to increase in size and strength. Forecasters said gale winds “are occurring just off shore, and will begin in most of the warning area along the coast by or before noon today, with hurricane conditions beginning this afternoon and spreading inland tonight, several hours ahead of the center.” 10-12-Foot Tides The service said tides of IO to 12 feet were expected over a small arca where the center crosses the coast, and five to IO feet elsewhere in the warning Agency has told congress it! area. the totals are an over* Thousands of residents of Louisiana, Mississippi, Ala- President Isabel Peron. promis- militant Peronist left and Mrs... ing arson, assassinations, sabo-1 Peron’s government apparently j J?e.S tage and bombings.    was signaled by an article in    .
