The Aftermath of Hurricane Rita

The city of Houston is returning to normal following the evacuations in anticipation of a major hit from Hurricane Rita. Houston Mayor Bill White and his Team were faced with numerous challenges in that an evacuation of this caliber has never before been attempted in the city's history. Was it smooth? Not quite. Were we prepared with supplies such as food and gasoline? No. But when the storm hit, those in the areas of highest impact were in a safer location. Mayor White is to be commended for his clear communications in getting the right info out to the media. The plans to bring Houstonians back seems to be working well and gasoline is flowing to pumps in the city. Please keep those in the Texas-Louisiana border in your thoughts as they prepare to rebuild.
