How to Get Out of Town

French Quarter, New Orleans, July 2001

New Orleans on a sunny July 2001 day.

If you have to get away, you'd better have a car.

Now, after taking cover in makeshift shelter, and after not having had the opportunity to leave before the fact, those with no other transportation means are being evacuated by bus:

NEW ORLEANS - The governor of Louisiana says everyone needs to leave New Orleans due to flooding from Hurricane Katrina. "We've sent buses in. We will be either loading them by boat, helicopter, anything that is necessary," Gov. Kathleen Blanco said. Army engineers trying to plug New Orleans' breached levees struggled to move giant sandbags and concrete barriers into place, and the governor said Wednesday the situation was growing more desperate and there was no choice but to abandon the flooded city.
