Galveston Calls for Voluntary Evacuations

AP - 45 minutes ago

GALVESTON, Texas - Taking a cue from the suffering in New Orleans, officials called for a voluntary evacuation of this island city as Hurricane Rita threatened to slam into the Texas Coast this weekend. Officials also began steps to fly thousands of Hurricane Katrina refugees in Texas shelters to Arkansas. Rita, approaching the Florida Keys, was upgraded to a hurricane Tuesday morning, and sustained wind reached 85 mph by late morning. Gov. Rick Perry on Monday recalled all emergency personnel helping with recovery from Hurricane Katrina to prepare for Rita, including almost 1,200 Texas National Guard members.


Evacuees from Katrina who were moved to Texas may now be sent to Arkansas!!!!


Will Rita brush the New Orlean's area again?

There was an article somewhere around here that I posted warning of another New Orlean's hit.
