Windswept Environmental Group Announces Mobilization to Louisiana for Hurricane Gustav

HOLTSVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Windswept Environmental Group, Inc. (Pink Sheets: WEGI.PK) today announced that its Trade Winds subsidiary is presently preparing approximately twenty (20) vehicles with generators and at least three (3) 45 foot semi-tractors trailers to leave its Holtsville location this weekend to support our Louisiana operations. This mobilization will depend on the strengthening and direction of the storm, but we have already contacted our large commercial clients in Louisiana to help support them.

Michael O'Reilly, Chairman and CEO of Windswept, stated, "The Company has, to our knowledge, the only pre-established pristine compound (with approximately 400 beds and a fully operational office with commercial kitchens and laundry facilities) in the New Orleans/Baton Rouge area and we have been there since the work we performed during Hurricane Katrina. As soon as the storm passes, we believe we will be the first Company able to assist in the recovery efforts to not only get our clients back in operation, but others as well. If you need our assistance, please contact us at our 24-hour operational Hot Line (1-800-282-8701). We have helped many during many hurricanes (Katrina, Wilma, Charlie and Ivan, to name a few). Our Baton Rouge office is also open 24 hours a day (225-667-9388). Our disaster recovery team is also available. Jeffery (516-779-7823), Eric (516-779-7053) and myself (516-779-7816)."
