South Mississippi battens down

There are 6 comments on the www.sunherald.com story from Aug 31, 2008, titled South Mississippi battens down. In it, www.sunherald.com reports that:

From Vancleave to Gulfport, residents are preparing for Hurricane Gustav while families from Louisiana and Texas look for the best route away the storm.

The latest advisory puts Hurricane Gustav at a Category 3 storm with maximum sustained winds near 120 mph.

That compares to Hurricane Katrina's winds of 170 mph at this point, said AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Carrie McCabe. With a high pressure over the northeast turning the storm further to the west away from New Orleans, AccuWeather now expects landfall between Lafourche Parish and Terrebonne Parish.

So I guess were not going to aid the Carolinas, Florida, and all persons living in a place that is prone to mother nature's fury

Oh please...guess we'll have to refuse to rebuild the entire country. You have tornadoes and severe snow/thunderstorms/floods in the midwest and northeast. Earthquakes and wildfires on the Westcoast, Southwest and inbetween. Duststorms and drought in the Southwest...Let's just stop rebuilding altogether(/sarcasm).

Wherever you live there will be natural disasters. Telling people to relocate because of Mother Nature is BS.
