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 
p.m.  Wednesday. 
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. ..."
