Default Re: British students trapped in the Superdrome .....

One of the things that has me absolutely amazed is that people who were going to stay home to ride out this hurricane didn't store potable water and food stuffs for at least a week.

An evacuation order had been given, so though it would be impossible to predict how bad, they certainly should have known it wasn't going to be over in an hour.

This was no small fishing village destroyed. A million people homeless, and over 100,000 to be evacuated and lord knows home many to be rescued first... the logistics were an enormous task, and as much as we wish it could be true, I don't think it possible it could have been organized much quicker than it was.
