Another Damning Article

Via Matilda's Advice and Rant, a Houston Chronicle article in 2001!
"In the face of an approaching storm, scientists say, the city's less-than-adequate evacuation routes would strand 250,000 people or more, and probably kill one of 10 left behind as the city drowned under 20 feet of water. Thousands of refugees could land in Houston....A big storm, scientists said, would likely block four of five evacuation routes long before it hit. Those left behind would have no power or transportation, and little food or medicine, and no prospects for a return to normal any time soon."The bowl would be full," Levitan said. "There's simply no place for the water to drain."
As Melroy (BLOPS)suggests in this post, who was President in 2001? Whoever wrote that article needs to be hired by FEMA.
