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.
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?
