Hurricane Irene Threatens Eastern US
.
As one so grievously remembers the events of Hurricane Katrina, and reads the investigation-accountability report which points out the governmental failure on all levels to efficiently protect and rescue the trapped people; additionally, we should not forget the fact that the warning calls to evacuate were either unheard or ignored by so many, able to react. Below are  news releases from the time Katrina came westward from Florida:

 Saturday, 8/27/05 "Hurricane Katrina Kills at Least 7 in Fla., Strengthens, Moves West"
 AP- Fla. - Hurricane Katrina has killed at least 7 in Fla., and is gaining strength & moving westward in the Gulf of Mexico on a path to make landfall again in the region as early as Monday, possibly as a Category 4 storm.

Sunday, 8/28/05 "Mandatory Evacuation For New Orleans Expecting Katrina"
AP- NEW ORLEANS - Katrina, intensified into a Category 5 hurricane, with 175-mph winds & a threat of a 28-foot storm surge, forced a N.O. mandatory evacuation, to which the city below-sea-level must promptly, protectively react.  Katrina, in the Gulf of Mexico, is on a path to come ashore early Monday in the heart of New Orleans. That would make it the city's first direct hit in 40 years & its most powerful storm ever. "We are facing a storm that most of us have long feared," Mayor Ray Nagin said in ordering the mandatory evacuation for his city of 485,000 people, surrounded by suburbs of a million more. "The storm surge will most likely topple our levee system."

Monday, 8/29/05 "Katrina Makes Landfall As A Category 4 Hurricane"
AP- NEW ORLEANS - Hurricane Katrina, a Category 4 storm, turned slightly eastward before hitting land about 6:10 a.m. CDT, east of Grand Isle in the bayou town of Buras, with 145 mph winds, putting the the weaker side of the strongest winds over New Orleans. But Nat. Hurricane Center Dir., Max Mayfield warned that New Orleans would be pounded throughout  Mon. & that the storm's potential 20 ft. storm surge could yet swamp the city. At the La. Superdome, which became a shelter for about 9K , the roof is leaking & electrical power failed at 5:02 a.m. Emergency generators are running only reduced lighting & cannot run the air conditioning.

Tuesday, 8/30/05  "Hurricane Katrina: "Catastrophic"
AP- FEMA- Hurricane Katrina wrought "catastrophic" damage to low-lying portions of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama & additional medical personnel were being moved in to treat evacuated hospital patients. With at least one N.O. hosp. threatened by floodwaters, patients were being transferred to the Superdome, & medical personnel were being sent in to treat them. "The damage is very, very sobering,...& of course the flooding is just everywhere ...This storm is really having a catastrophic effect," reported Michael Brown, dir. of the Federal Emerg. Mngmt. Agency.

It is evident by this log of documented history, ( see "Tracking Katrina" ) that if the evacuation had been called on Sept. 27, more of the Gulf coast residents that were alert and able would have had more time to react and clear out; undoubtedly saving many from the rising floodwaters of the breached levees. With Katrina headed westward from Fl. as a cat. 3-4 storm, the facts were that the Louisiana levees were in serious danger of giving way; which is at the core of the major catastrophe that ensued.

The very hard lesson learned for all of us is that we cannot always rely on governmental efficiency and others to protect us. We each have to do our part and pay attention to the world outside "our world", and even plan ahead for emergencies that could endanger our households. Complacency, a part of human nature when things seem relatively peaceful, can cause us to neglect the underlying dangers that we'd rather not address; but we all need to be paying attention to current and daily news events, and prepared.

In areas where hurricanes are frequent, every household should have a survival kit and an evacuation plan and follow it to the letter when the threat arises. Tornados, tsunamis, flood and earthquake danger zones require the same kind of diligence. Enough clean water and foods that require no refrigeration should be stocked in easy reach and routinely replaced to freshen. Enough cash should be on hand to meet necessary needs that arise, as banks could be shut down for a time. An evacuation suitcase for all family members should be stored within easy reach; and a family plan is needed to centrally get in touch, after being possibly scattered.

The U. S. government has a website: Ready America- U. S. Dept. of Homeland Security, that can greatly assist in preparing for all potential disasters that every member of every household should read.

When people are prepared, they worry less. Fear and worry are debilitating, weakening. A strong faith with prayer works great wonders psychologically and is even a deterrent to disaster.

With faith and readiness we are set up to prevail. GOD Bless our land, all our peoples and our homes, Amen.
