Since the mass panic and evacuation deaths from Hurricane Rita, people were encouraged to shelter in place.

"some people died in the last evacuation"
"well guess we better throw out the entire evacuation plan instead of either improving infrastructure and readiness to make an evacuation possible, or improving flood control infrastructure so it's not needed"

If you want to talk about Hurrican Katrina, please remember that the two largest dredging & marine infrastructure companies in the world offered their services at cost to mobilize their fleets to come rig up the levees and drain the flood.
Because of protectionist measures saying only ships under american flag and with american crews can do these types of work, they were turned away, leaving the army corps of engineers to fend for themselves using utterly outdated and substandard equipment, dragging out the crisis much longer than it needed to be. Hell, it's the army's inexperience with such projects that led to the whole catastrophic flood in the first place.

>or improving flood control infrastructure
Seeing as I've worked on several major projects (including a major detention basin in NW Harris County) with Harris County Flood Control, they are doing what they can. Infrastructure improvement costs money and time.

USCG "rules of the road" would presumably apply. E.g., two vessels meeting head-on would both reduce speed and come right to give each other sufficient berth; if their courses intersect, one vessel -- the one crossing left to right from the other's perspective, IIRC, but don't quote me on that -- would have the right of way, it being in such instances the responsibility of the other to reduce speed so that he passes behind the vessel which has the right of way.

I get the distinct impression that you were being at least partially facetious, but I thought that you or others might also find this interesting.
>> No. 110705 ID: f3c7ec
you are describing left-of-way
the term "right of way" originates in the concept that any vessel approaching from the right has priority. subsequently the term was bastardized to mean that the government is taking the front of your lawn and giving it to comcast or verizon.
then people came up with a new term for the concept "priority to the right" which means what "right of way" meant when the term originated.

  Charley Patton - High Water Everywhere Parts 1 and 2 (with subtitles) https://youtu.be/xL6UgyKItSo
This is legendary blues artist Charley Patton, recorded in October 1929. 'High Water Everywhere' is an open tuned AAB form song in the key of B, Spanish tuning. A topical song about the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927, Charley tells of going from town to town, trying to get away from the water. Due to Charley's rough voice and unfamiliar patois (probably Native American), the poetry of this blues founder is often lost in the mix. Our solution to this is to add subtitles to 'decode' his words. This is Charlie Patton Decoded, an ongoing project by Floating Castle Digital Workshop to increase understanding of, and about, this key figure in the history of American music.

I used the phrase in the sense in which it is understood in the common palaver, and though I appreciate a good etymology lesson as much as the next pretentious pedant, I find the prickly lolbertarian mini rant to be a bit much.

>Tropical Storm Harvey has set a preliminary Lower 48 U.S. rainfall record for any tropical storm or hurricane as it continues to soak the upper Texas coast and Louisiana, worsening record-breaking, catastrophic flooding.

>The Cedar Bayou gauge near Highlands, Texas, has reported a preliminary 51.88 inches of rain through 3 p.m. CDT Tuesday. This total may climb higher, as Harvey's rain is not yet finished in southeast Texas.

>A Harris County Flood Warning System rain gauge near Friendswood, Texas, reported a four-day storm total of 49.32 inches through 9 a.m. CDT Tuesday.

>If either of these are confirmed, it would be the heaviest storm-total rainfall from any tropical cyclone in the continental U.S. in records dating to 1950, topping the 48-inch storm total in Medina, Texas, from Tropical Storm Amelia in 1978, according to research by NOAA/WPC meteorologist David Roth.

>Arkema, the French chemical maker whose U.S. headquarters is in King of Prussia, warned Wednesday that its flooded plant in Crosby, Texas, will burn or explode unless floodwaters recede in the next few days, giving workers access to the darkened facility.

>But the explosion should not hurt anyone because the surrounding area has been evacuated, Rich Rowe, Arkema’s president and CEO for North America, told the Texas Tribune on Wednesday. The plant northeast of Houston is flooded with six feet of water, knocking out its electricity and backup generators and causing the plant to lose refrigeration for chemicals that must be kept cool to remain stable.

>“The materials could now explode and cause a subsequent, intense fire,” Rowe told the Tribune. “The high water and lack of power leave us with no way to prevent it.”

>The warning at the Crosby works, identified by a University of Texas expert as one of the industrial sites most at risk for a toxic release, has prompted the evacuation of the plant’s workers and an estimated 300 residents in a 1.5-mile radius of the facility.

>Update 10:50 a.m.: More explosions and smoky fires are expected at the flooded Arkema Inc. plant in Crosby, Texas, company officials and local law enforcement leaders said this morning. They warned that anyone who remained near the plant risked smoke inhalation, and compared the danger to heavy woodsmoke or a Texas barbecue. Officials had already evacuated plant workers and residents from a 1.5 mile radius around the works, and urged anyone who smelled smoke to turn off air conditioning. They said the smoke could cause eye and lung irritation, nausea, dizziness and drowsiness.

You have no idea how often I've seen this.

Last hurricane I waited fucking 4 hours for 1.5 gallons of gas for my scooter. All the time was taken up by a massive groups of retards all doing this at once, slowing the pumps to a trickle.

The best part is ever single one of them had the gall to complain the whole time. I just wanted to fill my scooter for my daily commutes. Faggots.

Riding for Houston tomorrow. The Corvus just underwent her 6,000 mile service, so she should be g2g. It is unfortunate that I haven't yet gotten around to procuring a onesie and airbag vest; to be frank, I'm exceedingly hesitant to undertake any substantial superslab travel until I have both of those. The only reason I'll be traveling such a distance is in order to help a socially isolated /k/amerad move from Houston to OK.


>They didn't seem smart enough to know it spoils and to add stabilizers. I didn't say shit.

That's excellent work, young man. Never get between a fool and his folly. This goes doubly for an aspiring profiteer.
