Series by cover
When my husband and I went to sleep on the evening of Friday, August 26, , we did not know that our lives and the city we loved would be forever changed in just a few days time. We also missed NHC s late-night update that the storm was indeed heading right for us. The next morning, my husband went to his computer and refreshed the Web page he had left open the night before, showing the predicted path of the hurricane.
He watched in horror as the latest map indicated the path leading directly to New Orleans. He rushed into the bedroom and woke me up with these words, Honey, we have to get out of here. For me, Saturday, August 27, alternated between a blur of packing activity and frozen moments of disbelief and denial. We had evacuated the year before for Hurricane Ivan without worry, but for some reason, I felt differently this time.
I was nervous and uneasy.
In speaking with friends and neighbors, though, it seemed that I might be overreacting. Some of them didn t plan to evacuate, dismissing the media s projections as the usual melodrama or saying they remembered being kids in New Orleans during Betsy or Camille and our neighborhood hadn t flooded then. We would be safe.
Nevertheless, we didn t relish the idea of holing up in our house with four large dogs and two cats for a few days at most without electricity. If there was flooding, we wouldn t be able to exercise the dogs, either. Evacuation was our best option and we decided to drive to my parents house in the Chicago area and make a mini-vacation out of it, just as we had the previous year.
Contraflow was first tested in and did not go well because it was implemented far too late; in , the state learned its lesson and contraflow allowed one million people to smoothly and quickly evacuate prior to the storm. We arrived at my parents house late that night and settled in for what we thought would be a nice surprise visit. On Monday, August 29, initial news reports said New Orleans was lucky once again as the storm had veered to the Mississippi coast. It wasn t until later in the day that word spread about the rising water in the city and the breached levees throughout the city.
I remember thinking, Oh, those poor people. Then I realized that the canal bordering the west side of my neighborhood, Lakeview, was called the 17th Street Canal and I was in fact one of those poor people whose house was flooding. And what about my friends and neighbors who had stayed behind?
Were they in danger?
