From the Houston Chronicle:
Four hurricane lessons we should have learned
‘We are ready’ for our test after a crash course from Rita and Katrina, officials here say
- When planning a coastal evacuation from the Houston region, it’s a good idea to extend the routes north of Interstate 10.
- If everyone evacuates, service stations will quickly run out of gas and employees.
- People with special needs need special attention during a hurricane evacuation.
- Fewer Houstonians might evacuate if a few temporary shelters were made available.
