"Disaster Prep Rule #1.1: Rely on the government for NOTHING. That way, you won't be disappointed."
Absolutely correct. I think that's the main lesson from this.
Have enough food and supplies to last for two weeks, at the very least, before help comes from the outside. And be prepared to defend your supplies and yourself.
RULE 1A: The Gummint will the the first one to take everything you have left to save itself.

The people refused to leave once they were told. This happens every-time a disaster happens in this country.
The New Orleans Police, State Police and National Guard in Louisiana had more than enough people to direct traffic and get those people out had they wanted to. The federal government is designed to aide and direct after the fact and it is left up to locals to run their own government like they do when they waste all the money the Feds send in there.Of course we can turn this into a Communist Country like the Democrats want or we can fix the problem. Now as to whose fault it was. There is not a county in this country that doesn't get federal dollars to prepare for for this and they have gotten these dollars for well over 40 years and where were they spent?
Now as to the poor and homeless. They have been this way for ever so where have all of these people been that are complaining now.? The same place they were for the last 40 years,taking care of themselves and fiddling while Rome burned. These people come out and the MSM abets them in their corrupt intentions which is to get their name in the news and to help a sagging worthless industry called media and entertainment. Remember this is the same group that condemns anyone who tries to help these people become self sufficient, if you don't believe it ask Bill Cosby.
