Geez, I'm sorry but Gustav was no Katrina. It is sad that anyone would use that as an excuse to break the law.

these new orleans evacuee's are still thinking their getting another $2500 debit card like they did during katrina...there was minimal if any,damage to n/o during gustav,so why do they expect a payout?(maybe because they were'nt allowed to stay behind and loot?

I agree. People forget that Katrina didn't hit NO, it hit the Gulfport/Biloxi area. What happened in NO wouldn't have if the levees would have been up to code (which they had been warned and warned about). It is terrible to lose your home, however, there comes a point where you have to get back on your feet and either rebuild your home or rebuild your life somewhere else. I know of no one who has lost their home in a fire still living in a Red Cross sponsored hotel or government-funded trailer three years later.

Agreed. I really don't understand how no one ever anticipated being hit by something when they are that close to the coast. More steps should have been taken beforehand to ensure that such a disaster would have never happened. But hindsight is 20/20.

I hope they have more law enforcement about in areas where evacuated people have been going so that more incidents like this fellows don't happen. That's a terrible mindset for people to have. So many people were scared of evacuating this time because they were fearful that someone would break in and loot their house. That's just a terrible sin.

I gree.There comes a time when you have to #$%^ or get off the pot. Some of those folks need to get off the pot. If i lost my home over & over again.I"d start out someplace else.Granted,Some had no Ins.But, Unless the Govt. wants to keep spending out Tax Dollars on replacing homes & moving people out every year or so,Why don"t they just buy the property from the people ( Like they do in imminent domain cases ) and get over with it? That way the people have the $$"s to move to safer places & it would cost the tax payers less in the long run. I sure wouldn"t want to move back underneath a levee,It would be too nerve wracking. If they did that,It would solve Many,Many problems for the homeowners & the City.Restore the wetlands & water wouldn"t be such a Major problem during hurricanes.I certainly would encourage friends & relatives to get out of there.

after the katrina refugees fled to Houston Texas, the crime rate trippled in only a few month's,
citizens were demanding the city remove these people,some people only want to leech off of others and society,and refuse to help themselves
and only want a hand out.I am sick of my tax dollars paying to rebuild these homes over,and over,and over,while the resident sit's with arms folded waiting on us to fix their problem..........
