Thanks.

Louisiana Develops Improved Hurricane Evacuation Plan

April 13, 2005 -- According to today's FEMA National Situation Update, a new hurricane evacuation plan was demanded by Governor Kathleen Blanco after Hurricane Ivan when a traffic snarl that stretched from New Orleans to Baton Rouge lasted upward of 12 hours. The plan was put together by state police and the DOTD and includes evacuation routes for not only New Orleans and points south, but Lake Charles, Lafayette and the Houma-Thibodaux area. Under the new plan preparing for evacuations would begin at least 72 hours in advance. One of the problems during Ivan was the time required to get barriers, people and other material in place to allow lane reversal on highways.

Beginning 50 hours in advance, evacuations south of New Orleans would be ordered, public offices and schools would be closed, but traffic would remain along normal routes.


At 40 hours, evacuation south of the Mississippi River, including the West Bank of New Orleans, would be ordered.


In Phase 3, if the storm is a category 3 storm or higher, contraflow would be triggered.
Problems that slowed traffic last time ran the gamut from signs that were too hard to read, forcing drivers to slow excessively, to breakdowns. Under the new system tow trucks will be stationed along the routes and new signs will be installed. The new hurricane evacuation plan also requires a number of new ramps to be added or widened, new crossovers and other items at a cost of $7.5 million.

If that's all they got, there may be criminal charges. Have you heard that along with a private plane and a casino the New Orleans levee board also owns two marinas?

South shore and orleans.

The rumblings of things to come. This is gonna get interesting.

There is a FReeper ( I can't remember his/ her name) who keeps a great list of all MSM contacts. Need to get this info out to ALL MSM contacts on the list, all newspapers.

Ok the DHS assumes the responsibility that local emergency response personnel are PREPARED.

That has nothing to do with the fact that these personnel need to be CALLED INTO ACTION, i.e. the plan IMPLEMENTED.

what exactly are you saying with this post?

Hi,

I'm looking for a hard link that shows the Levee Board owns a Casino.

Do you have one. The link you provided only lists the two Marina's, not a proven link they own one.

Thanks,
Joe

Its important this doesn't get swept under the rug of false racism charges and anti-Bush media bias.

Agreed but ....

1) FreeRepublic should not be the focus of the blame game. FreeRepublic is already under fire nationally for the few replies, wreaking of racism, submitted by a handful of registered idiots.

2) Whatever facts we uncover through diligent searches we aren't going to change the attitudes and reporting styles of the MSM.

3) I've suggested that these factual reports involving politically charged and sensitive issues be posted on FR as a locked thread (no replies possible). The information would be available for the world and the MSM to read but the few unthinking Freepers or disrupters would not have a chance to blacken our reputation or provide ammunition for our tormentors.
