City of New Orleans Emergency Preparedness Plan - ANNEX I: HURRICANES
City of New Orleans Emergency Preparedness Plan - ANNEX I: HURRICANES

The City of New Orleans develops an emergency preparedness plan.

,,,The Hurricane Emergency Evacuation Standard Operating Procedure is designed to deal with all case scenarios of an evacuation in response to the approach of a major hurricane towards New Orleans. It is designed to deal with the anticipation of a direct hit from a major hurricane. This includes identifying the city’s present population, its projected population, identification of at-risk populations (those living outside levee protection or in storm-surge areas, floodplains, mobile homes, etc.)...

Conduct of an actual evacuation will be the responsibility of the Mayor of New Orleans...

The authority to order the evacuation of residents threatened by an approaching hurricane is conferred to the Governor by Louisiana Statute. The Governor is granted the power to direct and compel the evacuation of all or part of the population from a stricken or threatened area within the State, if he deems this action necessary for the preservation of life or other disaster mitigation, response or recovery. The same power to order an evacuation conferred upon the Governor is also delegated to each political subdivision of the State by Executive Order. This authority empowers the chief elected official of New Orleans, the Mayor of New Orleans, to order the evacuation of the parish residents threatened by an approaching hurricane.

The person responsible for recognition of hurricane related preparation needs and for the issuance of an evacuation order is the Mayor of the City of New Orleans.

When they interviewed the poor people that were stranded in the flood, they asked them why they not evacuated when told to.

The response was, they did not believe the government.

We call this the Darwin award.

Next time there will be fewer to rescue.

Good old Darwin

Lake George

Wonkette says that federal bureaucrats angry over the funding cuts for levee projects and related anti-flood programs in New Orleans have come up with a name for the mess down there: Lake George.

And she had email from "a friend at the EPA." If this can be verfied, it will show that the Iraq-related slowdown in federal levee work is directly related to the breach that caused the flooding that has killed at least hundreds. Here´s what her federal source reports:

We´re naming it Lake George, ´cause it´s his frickin fault. Have you seen all that data about the levee projects´ funding being cut over the past three years by the Prez, and the funding transferred to Iraq? The levee, as designed, might not have held back the surge from a direct Class 5 hit, but it certainly would not have crumbled on Monday night from saturation and scour erosion following a glancing blow from a Class 3. The failure was in a spot that had just been rebuilt, not yet compacted, not planted, and not armed (hardened with rock/concrete). The project should have been done two years ago, but the federal gov´t diverted 80% of the funding to Iraq. Other areas had settled by a few feet from their design specs, and the money to repair them was diverted to Iraq.
