Galveston mandatory evacuations
Galveston county officials just signed the paperwork declaring a state of
emergency. *Every* person living in Galveston county is ordered to evacuate.
This is not voluntary -- it's mandatory. I saw this broadcast live on Channel
26 just a few minutes ago.
(checking the internet...) Here's a site that just now has the details (wow,
that was quick): _http://www.khou.com/topstories/stories/_
"Galveston officials have now called for mandatory evacuations ahead of
Hurricane Rita beginning Wednesday. The order is for every one living in
Galveston County. ... Residents who wait until the mandatory evacuation takes effect
on Thursday will only have one way out. They'll have to stay on I-45 until
they reach Huntsville. ...
Zone A of the evacuation plan, which includes the southern portions of the
county including Galveston Island, Tiki Island and Bayou Vista, begins at 6
Zone B of the plan, which includes the central portions of the county’s
mainland as well as the bay front communities of Kemah, San Leon and Bacliff, are
to start evacuation at 2 a.m. Thursday.
Zone C, which is the northern reaches of the county including League City
and Friendswood, will start evacuation at 12 p.m. Thursday. ..."
