some ppl dont learn too easily (NOLA)

Scott said she doesn't know when, but she's determined to return to her Louisiana home whenever she's able.

For now, however, the former housekeeper at a Quality Inn in New Orleans said she will take her children, Bryoa, 11, Bryan, 9, and Kashod, 10 months, out of Galveston on city-run buses later this week if local officials call for evacuation.

"I'll go wherever I have to go," Scott said.

In Galveston, buses for those without transportation are scheduled to begin running at 10 a.m. Wednesday from the Island Community Center, if Rita threatens to hit Galveston as a hurricane.

If started, the service will run until 2 p.m. Friday, City Manager Steve LeBlanc said.

Scott said she feels even more vulnerable to hurricanes now than before Katrina.

"I might have to evacuate here, too, because I'm right here on the first floor," she said, pointing to the front door of her Palm Terrace apartment just a block off of Broadway in Galveston. "The water could run right in here."

Evacuation will be the only option for her family if Galveston is threatened by a hurricane, she said.

"It's very terrible having to do it all over again, but I have to save my kids." Scott said.

City officials don't have an accurate count of Katrina evacuees who ended up in Galveston, but more than 400 children from the storm-stricken areas are enrolled in Galveston schools.

if i had just come from NOLA theres no way you could get me to live even close to galveston!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i guess i just may have been blessed with a little more common sense

NOLA people have a target painted on thier back that only the hurricanes can see.
If dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope he likes enchiladas, because that's what he's getting!

City Hopes To Close Mega Shelters Before Rita Hits
Houston Officials Say Safety Is Priority

POSTED: 6:59 am CDT September 20, 2005
UPDATED: 7:23 am CDT September 20, 2005

HOUSTON -- Houston city leaders hope to help Katrina evacuees avoid another hit, but the plan to empty the city's largest shelters days before Rita is scheduled to come ashore is not sitting well with everyone, KPRC Local 2 reported Tuesday.

Officials with the City of Houston said they would put evacuees still living in the city's two largest shelters, Reliant Arena and the George R. Brown Convention Center, on planes or buses to Fort Chaffee, Ark.

Storm survivors will be offered the same services in Arkansas that they have received in Houston over the past three weeks.

The city said it is all about safety, because those shelters might not hold up in a hurricane.

However, some evacuees said they were caught off guard and feel like they are being pushed out.

"I feel like they could have at least given us until Friday like they said they were. This was so sudden," an evacuee told KPRC Local 2.

"What choice do you have, you know? I don't have a choice," evacuee Keith Phillips said.

"I'm not taking a chance like I did in New Orleans. I stood on the roof for four days and four nights. I'm not taking that chance again," evacuee Wilson Morrison said.

The city hopes to have the two shelters completely empty by Tuesday night.

Shelter organizers said evacuees would be flown or bussed to Fort Chaffee.
