Jack Colley, coordinator of the state emergency operations center, said the state evacuation plan included getting fuel to stranded motorists, but that the number of people coming out of Houston was a surprise.
"The number of people, the amount of cars, the amount of compliance with this (evacuation order), there's some things you can predict and some things you can't, that are unpredictable," Colley said. "We are compensating. They may run out of gas, but we're going to get them gas."
Colley said it is too early to tell if mistakes were made in the planning and execution of the evacuation.
Yeah, the fact the people would leave after a mandatory evacuation just weeks after a hurricane demolished the city of New Orleans must be so hard to predict.
BTW, if there is ever a mandatory evacuation of Long Island, I am so freaking dead. You can sit at the bridges and tunnels for hours with just ordinary traffic.
