im sorta in the middle here. i think its so sad that so many people lost thier homes and some family members but its not their fault the hurricane happened. sure the people in NO could have evacuated the city when they were first told but who belives things when they havnt happend yet? and can you imagine leaving your house and all your favourite belongings behind you in a house that holds so many memories. in my opinion they were stupid for not leaving but i also feel sorry for them because they lost stuff that can never be regained. i thank god every day that i live in canada where there arnt many natural disasters and i hope that everyone in the states are safe and cared for.
