Rita's Digest: Evacuation - Part 2

My brother's family left Houston 2:30 this morning to head north. They didn't arrive in Dallas-Fort Worth until about 11:00. From what he was hearing, they were on one of the fast routes. Some reports put the trek from the south parts of Houston to DFW taking around 24 hours. If anything, this should serve as a wake-up call for how difficult it is to move large populations to safety. At least with a hurricane, there is a couple of days warning. What happens if there is an unexpected, catastrophic event — whether by terrorism or other means — in which a population like Houston's has to be evacuated with no notice or preparation? There would be mass hysteria and cannibalistic chaos. I hope I never have to witness that in my lifetime.
