New Orleans Asked to Evacuate

In what is fast becoming a horrible repeat of Hurricane Katrina nearly exactly 2 years ago, the city has been officially asked to evacuate.

As Hurricane Gustav gets ready to hit land early Tuesday…

"You need to be scared," Nagin said of the Category 4 hurricane tearing along Cuba’s western coast. "You need to be concerned, and you need to get your butts moving out of New Orleans right now. This is the storm of the century."


To all of us not in New Orleans, this is not even fathomable.

Can you for one minute imagine evacuating Mumbai or New York.

At times like this, thoughts prayers and sympathies go to the people who are going to be affected…be they today in New Orleans or two years ago in Mumbai or northern Bihar, or any part of the world that faces natural calamatieis.
