Relocated Katrina survivors relive pain through Gustav

A Paramus family who survived Katrina is reliving the horrors as Hurricane Gustav pounds on relatives still living along the Gulf Cost.

The Gonzalez family relocated to New Jersey after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. The family of five lost everything they owned and says they lived like nomads after being evacuated.

"We just didn't take clothes ? no money ... we didn't take anything," says Hugo Gonzalez. "We lived in the car for two weeks."

The Gonzalez family says they've been overwhelmed by generosity since moving to the Garden State.

More than 11 million people are located in the path of Gustav. The family says their hearts go out to those in danger right now.

"It makes me sad," says Hugo Gonzalez. "I don't want anyone to go through what we went through."
