ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos reports: With Hurricane Gustav bearing down on the Gulf Coast, Cindy McCain said today that she and her husband, presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain, are leaving all options on the table for restructuring the upcoming Republican convention in St. Paul, Minn.

"We’re keeping a very close eye on what this hurricane is doing," said McCain, in an exclusive interview airing tomorrow on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos." "If it looks like it’s going to hit, we will, obviously, drastically change our plans."

Gustav, currently a category 4 hurricane, is projected to make landfall in the United States on Monday or Tuesday.  The hurricane has already killed more than 80 people.   

"This is not a time to celebrate," said McCain.

McCain’s full interview airs Sunday morning on "This Week."
