Mayor Nagin wants a 100% evacuation. He says, if you stay, you are completely on your own. Katrina had a footprint of 400 miles while Gustav is 900 miles and growing.
“You need to be scared and you need to get your butts out of New Orleans right now,” Nagin said.
He expects Gustav to “punch holes in the Harvey Canal,” which could cause the West Bank to become a bathtub.
