Responding to Natural Disasters...

The demonstrable difficulty in tracking the wavering path of Rita proves the inherent difficulty in managing a response to such disasters…

Now, the centerpoint of Rita has moved hundreds of miles north and east – toward Louisiana.

Yesterdays evacuations of the southern reaches of the storm may easily prove irrelevant.

Evacuations of regions outside yesterday’s cone must proceed apace and with minimal warning.

Which regions are Governor Perry to evacuate?

Which cities are to dust off their plans?

Where is FEMA to stage?

We have now been there and done that.

Be flexible and hope the voters elected leadership!!!
