I don't think it would of save that many lives to be quite honest.Most of the lives were lost up the rivers and bayous.It was here that some places had 20-30 feet water overflowing the banks and taking whole families in some instances.I think no one and I mean no one saw this coming or they would of gotten out.I think that part of the problem was that everyone thought that cat 4 surge was coming not a cat 5 derived from a 175 mph storm at 902mb.Now wherever Rita goes she will carry much the same wave with her.
