New Orleans (AP) Most homes don't have power or working toilets, but residents in New Orleans can start going back at midnight tonight. About 77,000 homes in New Orleans are in the dark, and it's unclear when that'll change.

President Bush is heading to Louisiana today for a briefing on the damage.

The President says America's grateful that damage was less than many feared. But he says coastal regions remain dangerous. He's asking evacuees anxious to go home to be patient.

In Louisiana, Bush will see just some of what Gustav did on a visit to Baton Rouge, where he'll be briefed by emergency chiefs. He's not going to New Orleans.
