It now seems that it was not as easy to get out of New Orleans as I had previously stated. Reports are now coming in that several of the local governments hindered people from leaving. In particular the main bridge west out of New Orleans was closed a day before Katrina hit. The local government seemed to not be very cooperative at all it turns out. Perhaps it was not so much the peoples fault that they stayed there as I had previously suggested. And afterwards the local government wouldn't allow aid to go to the SuperDome because they wanted to get people out of the city and bringing aid to the city would prolong that effort.
