Thanks for all the replies
Maybe i, and others have read the "you'll be on your own" to literally?
From reading the article, that says to me that you will have to fend for yourselves.
Does that mean shelter and food? Or does it mean they'll still rescue you if you are trapped and dieing?
I mean every day emergency services all over the world help people who have ignored instructions and done something they have been advised/told not to
do. Drink driving, swimming in a place where you should not swim, getting stuck on a train track when you should not be there. Should the emergency
services say "You're on your own because we did warn you!"?
Whilst i appreciate that if you are given warnings of a disaster of this magnitude, you are silly to ignore them, there are still some that will be
there when disaster hits.
I'd like to think the administration would not relish the public seeing people being washed away and the emergency services not helping because they
asked for it. That would possibly cause an even bigger reaction than the Katrina balls up.
The scary thing is, you never know how low the current administration will stoop nowadays.
I just hope everybody comes out of this safe, especially our friends here on ATS.
