... busses out of the city. Ooh and Amtrak! That sounds like a plan I heard before and an offer (Amtrak) that was made before! But where to get the busses? Oh wait. They all got flooded out in the last hurricane.
I got a kick out of this picture of Nagin with his flowchart
NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (CNN) -- New Orleans officials detailed a new disaster-preparedness plan on Tuesday that depends more on evacuation by bus and train and won't use the Superdome and Convention Center as shelters.
Mayor Ray Nagin and New Orleans Homeland Security Director Col. Terry Ebbert said the plan will prevent a repeat of the major disaster that happened when Katrina slammed the city last year.
"We think that we have come a long way," Ebbert said.
Ebbert and Nagin outlined a strategy built on lessons learned from Katrina, which killed at least 1,295 people in Louisiana and stranded thousands in New Orleans for days without help.
"Read my lips: This is a plan for getting people out of the city. There is no shelter of last resort," Nagin said. (Watch how those who stay behind will face arrest -- 1:29)
An evacuation would be ordered at least 30 hours before landfall of any hurricane of Category 2 strength or higher, with a curfew imposed after the evacuation, Nagin said
to bad he didnt do this the last time, it took how many to die to make this jerk wake up?
