You saw a tornado? I almost said Lucky you because I never have. Weird.a hurricane is no joke. I have seen it first hand and a tornado! them things will completely destroy anything that it touches. I just wished that people will get the clue to get the hell out of there. Their lives are more important than their material things. Material things can be replaced but their lives can not.
Going by memory but I do believe there were efforts to get people evacuated who didn't have cars or other ways to leave. I heard that school buses were used to do that as well as schools in the CMS district were closed to have them ready as emergency shelters for the evacuees. Although the death toll was around 32 (last I heard) it seems like efforts all around went well- the Cajun Navy were even up here helping out.This one has not been mainly one large city as Katrina was but I remember photos of buses getting flooded during Katrina and criticism that they should have been used to take people that did not have vehicles out of the evacuation zones instead of being parked and then getting flooded. This time I don't remember seeing anything about help to get out for those that do not have vehicles either. Anyone know what was or wasn't done in different parts of the area affected?
