The news this morning was saying that the evacuation traffic jam is one of the longest in human history, getting up to 120 miles long at one point. Its even causing traffic jams on the other side of the Atlantic - fears over increased petrol prices have caused a panicked run on some petrol stations in the UK.

my heart goes out 2 the people in the gulf coast..they r having a rough time this yr...lets hope this hurricane does not claim as many human lives as the prev one...v can always re-build cities but cannot get lost lives back..and lets hope that this time feds do not drop the ball as they did with Katrina
One doubt.. Why do they want to rebuild New Orleans.. AS this is a low -lying city, even a small storm also can cause floods. may be they should take all the people to a differt place and build a new city, which is safe to live.. Otherwise, every year, people have to suffer from these hurricanes- evacuations, traffic jams etc [ September 23, 2005: Message edited by: Ram kovis ]
