I am watching the approach of Ike to the coast line of Texas, I just heard the news casters say that the people that didn't evacuate which they would have. Now it is too late, the hurricane hasn't made landfall yet and the streets are already flooded the wind is high. Just imagine what is going to happen when it does reach land. If you were in the path of a hurricane and the authority advised you to evacuate would you leave or stay? I would get my family and leave no questions asked. The have already told you that in case of an emergency they will not be able to get to you.

chevee If I was in a caseof emergencyand told to leave, I damned well would leave and pack up my family,and we would be out of there. we had a situation with fire storms here last fall and almost had to leave our homes then the wind shifted and the fire leapt into the c anyons where all the most rich live and many homes were destroyed. the fire came up to the edge of Tustin then turned and veered off.

If I had family I would leave. If it was just me, I'd stay as I really don't give a flying %@#& what happens to me.

I definitely would leave with my loved ones. Sometimes I don't know how to react to people you hear on TV who say that they knew it was going to be big but not this big and that's why they stayed despite the mandatory evacuation warning. And then the next day, you hear of reports that the emergency crew got thousands of call for help.

I would probably leave a week before they asked me to.. I am not so brave nor so stupid to think that I could weather out a storm such as this.. I am a coward when it comes to the weather situations.. I would also not put any member of my family in harm's way.. So, I would be our like a shot, I would be gone way before time to go..
