What a mess

This speaks for itself:

Conduct of an actual evacuation will be the responsibility of the Mayor of New Orleans in coordination with the Director of the Office of Emergency Preparedness, and the OEP Shelter Coordinator.

That is from The City Of New Orleans Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan.

Before anyone decides to place blame for the lack of coordination in evacuating folks from New Orleans - go and read the plan - had the NO Mayor followed the plan, things would have turned out differently.

Thanks to Sister Toldjah for her excellent post that links to this document, among others.
