GALVESTON, Texas (Reuters) - The evacuation of the U.S. Gulf Coast turned deadly on Friday when a bus carrying elderly people fleeing Hurricane Rita caught fire on a Texas highway, killing at least 20 along a major escape route, local officials and news reports said.
"The only way to get out of here will be by boat in about 10 or 15 minutes," Stevens said.
