If They Knew Then . . .

I found a little set of web pages with good hurricane info
written by someone for the New Orleans area around 2003. Looks like
this person was pretty smart. Some of the links don't work. Here are
some of the working links:

Should I Stay or Should I Leave says in part, "The City of New Orleans and surrounding parishes have
devised evacuation plans in the event of a strike on this area by a major hurricane.

and should not be taken into consideration by anyone making serious, Life-or-Death

The Contra Flow Plan

Sheltering In-Place: Riding Out The Storm At Home says in part, "In the New Orleans area and surrounding parishes, the projected model for a
direct hit by a Category 3 hurricane predicts flooding of 20 to 30 feet deep. It is expected that Lake Pontchartrain
would be dumped into the bowl-shaped basin that forms this area by the counter-clockwise motion of the storm sweeping
the lake's water into the city and surrounding metropolitan areas below it. And flood waters could possibly sit
inside the levee system for months before they could be successfully drained. I think that's a good reason
to evacuate, if at all possible."
