  •  evacuation troubles (4.00)
    I wonder how much these and other cuts - not to mention shelving ways to deal with a Cat 5 storm - have effected the efficiency of the actual evacuation? I'm watching the various cable news stations, and by all accounts the evacuation seems very, very confused, with officers directing people one way on highways, only for those people to be sent back the other way once they try it. Looks like a lot of folks going nowhere fast. I realize these things are always a little slow and challenging, but correspondents are claiming to have heard from many officers that they just aren't sure where people should drive.

    It must be very frustrating and frightening.
