I still say the so called Mayor dropped the ball, NHC pleaded with him to evacuate immediately and he didn't. The Gov. doesn't have a clue what to do or how. They didn't anticipate the Levee breach and massive flooding which caused added complications. It is easy to judge and place blame,truth is had total evacuation taken place when it should have the need to rescue people in NO from rooftops would not have been necessary. That would have left valuable time for rescue of those trapped under rubble and In homes that were flooded. Perhaps even the looting would not have been so bad because no one would have been in the city to do the looting. As I stated in an earlier post it takes time even if they are staged in a location waiting to aid people I saw that myself last year, they can't come in until it is safe, they must sit up, and when millions need help it is overwhelming to say the least. Last year we went 3 times the day after we were hit for ice and water and it was gone. So many people needed it. If it hadn't been for Publix and Wal-Mart sitting up trucks of ice and water to help out, we might not have ever gotten ice or water. NO is flooded and these companies can't do that to help right now so that in itself makes a difference. Maybe our government wasn't prepared for something of this magnitude, how many would be ?? Would you?? Or like so many others do you think this will never happen to you? It could happen next week to me, but I for one will not stay and ride it out. Just my 2 cents
