Not to sound too cold blooded here, but they did tell the citizens of Galveston Island to evacuate before hand.
You are correct on all points of your post...but this thread is actually not about those who stayed or left, it's about the fact that those who left, those who have family and friends on the island who may not have left, and the taxpayers who fund the response to these situations are being intentionally kept in the blind.

Or if you believe it is just an attempt to cover up of the exent of damage and death, please explain how you think this cover-up would benefit anyone?

Another site with excellent overlays before and after which also include street names:
BOLIVAR PENINSULA — What was Bolivar Peninsula is now three separate islands, and most homes there were destroyed. “It’s no longer Bolivar Peninsula,” State Rep. Craig Eiland of Galveston said. “It’s an island times three. The roads are cut, and the bridges are out. Residents won’t be back anytime soon.” No bodies have been found, but officials said the situation was grim. “I’m not Pollyanna,” County Judge Jim Yarborough said. “I think we’ll find some. We certainly expect to find some.” Yarborough said emergency crews were on the ground. He urged the remaining 300 residents to leave on emergency boats and helicopters. By next week, sheriff’s deputies will institute marshal law, forcing remaining residents out of the area. Transportation to the area is cut off. The Bolivar Ferry will be down for months. There is no estimate on when the service will return.

There are more than 2 bridges that connect the islands.
You of all people should know that after scouring NOAA images.

What type of predators are in those waters or could have been brought in land due to the storm? What role, if any, could they be playing in a media blackout?
I think that the powers that be want to get a firm grip on the casualties and get their SAR and aid to victims together. They don't need more egg on their face.
For the conspriacists:
Perhaps something was blown onto shore from the depths.
Something uncovered in the sand.
Isn't there some ship laden with California Gold Rush that went down in those waters?
Ancient artifacts or alien craft?

I'm trying to understand the reasoning behind all the satellite images so many of you are posting of utility and emergency trucks. Are you implying they are actually NWO vehicles in disguise? Is that the cover up/conspiracy? What is the purpose of the images?.
If this thread was titled say ....."Galveston Island post Ike image repository" I could understand. But what are these images adding to the discussion of a cover up?
