I am surprised by this, but I do understand. I imagine the jurors were victims of the levee breaches too and didn't expect it either so they were able to sympathize with the nursing home owners.

I'm glad for them. How are a pair of sixty-odd yr olds supposed to have lifted all them folk to safety? As for evacuation, I'd have put my trust in the authorities to tell me if and when it was needed. Sounds like they were all victims of the storm.
