if your interested to know, the evacuation out of the city this time around has been very smooth. most of the lower half of the state has been evacuated. most every thing is battened down and the re-enforcements are all in place ready to jump on the aftermath. im 50 miles north of the city and there are national guard at every interstate exit in my town directing traffic and setting up their posts to handle rescue, food, water, etc, should that need arise. i think this is going to go real smooth and jindal is going to make the prior administration look like fools, deserved or not. no doubt it is easier the seond time around.
