    As a hurricane Katrina survivor (direct hit) I urge you to mandate that your population get out now. Many in my area (Slidell, LA) thought nothing would happen … a good friend of mine drowned … it did happen!

    Advise the public to remove all food from their refrigerators. When the power goes off for weeks the fridg. contents become rancid and the unit is no longer usable.

    There will be no power, gas, food, water, your belongings will be gone and the heat will be opressive.

    Best of luck!
