Dos preguntas; "arriba" y "a"

Today I saw a headline in the Mexican newspaper, Reforma, that said, Arriba 'Gustav' a Luisiana. I couldn't really translate it, as two things troubled me: arriba and a. I found the translation of arriba pretty quick, and figured out the sentence must mean, 'Gustav' is above Louisiana. But I would still like to know why arriba is in the front of the subject - and also exactly how a is used. I've read the entry on a in the wiki, but I don't really feel it helps me. Could someone explain its use, together with examples?

¡Gracias!
