New Orleans is being evacuated. I remember watching hurricane specials that said that if a Cat 5 ever hit New Orleans it would be disastrous, the city normally has to pump out water because it’s below sea level, but now…. Yikes.
Spent some time watching wwltv.com and the evacuation. There’s a (looks like) Asian American police official telling people, “if you’re stubborn and haven’t left yet, you should have let yesterday, you better haul ass and get outta here.” Wow. Maybe it’s because my house is on the market and everything, but it is really making me think about what that must be like in New Orleans. They’re talking about, if you choose to stay, better have tools to bust through your attic in case you get floodd up there and need to bust through the roof. Natural disasters mess me up.
But in the back of my head, and I can’t make it go away, is this nagging feeling… at least they have warning, at least they have warning… and cars to get out…. the tsunami victims didn’t have any of that.
