HURRICANE IKE INFO This is live streaming coverage of Ike in Houston/Galveston. The devastation is horrible. So many having to be rescued as Texas law does not require a citizen to obey a mandatory evac order, as I understand it. There are zip code maps for damage and outages, etc. Also, a chat with info. FEMA isn't working correctly yet. People without food, water, ice, etc., and Chertoff talking about identifying distribution sites. A reporter said, shouldn't that have been done BEFORE the storm? Meanwhile, Clear Channel Radio had ice trucks and water trucks brought to a store parking lot and started giving them out in an efficient and orderly fashion. First Responders had no food, water, etc. People of Houston brought hot food and BBQ grills and started cooking for them.

My heart goes out to them. I will pray for them; please join me in wishing them strength and faith to get thru this.

Claudette No unsolicitied comments on syntax, etc. Thank you.

So sorry--forgot I wasn't posting on the forum. Those guys comment on your typos, etc., instead of focusing on the issues. Mea culpa. Claudette

Living in New Orleans, as much as I hate it and can't afford another one, I am grateful that when the government says "get out" we (and since Katrina most of us here) do just that.

Cross your fingers; the Atlantic looks quiet and those of us in the gulf are pretty much out of danger by the middle of October.

I just hope W and his gang of merry men do a better job in Texas than they did here. At least their water is mostly gone and they can begin the rebuild. My heart goes out to all.

> Texas law does not require a citizen to obey a mandatory evac order,

Then clearly it isn't a mandatory evac order.

Can't those bureaucrats name things properly?
