They will start using the "evaculanes" on I-37 Wed.
This is NOT "Contra-Flow". There is a BIG difference, trust me on this one.
They will be using the wide shoulders of the interstate to move extra
lanes of traffic north for the evac.
At no less than H-36 hours, the decision will be made whether to punch
the button on Contra-flow. That will depend on how the evac goes before
then and how many estimated people are left and the intensity of the
storm and final track.
If you are in the Victoria area or Matagorda area, I would consider
leaving if Ike performs according to the models.
One big consideration no matter where you are or go if you are in or
near the effected areas....be sure to fill up you gas tanks of your
Once the storm hits, power is lost, the fuel depots and stations will
clsoe and not re-open till the storm is over and power restored. This
can take some time dependent on where they are located.
The Governors Dept of Emergency Management and TxDOT have several good
web pages on hurricane preparedness.
