VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -  Millions of people have fled Gustavs wrath. Many chose to weather the storm in Valdosta.

Those evacuees are watching the storm closely, praying their homes will be in tact when they return home.

The Pichon's made the seven hour trip from Louisiana without much of a delay.

But they say the stress of constant evacuations are taking its toll. 

"A lot of our family members, especially those 60 and above are having a really difficult time for the last three years just trying to get their homes back together. Now they are stressed out again trying to figure out what they'll do next and hopefully not have to go through the same thing," says evacuee Richard Pichon.

They hope to head back home by the middle of the week.
