There is just no way that our country can absorb the millions of people from three and a half states. Resources are stretched far enough with folks staying where they are. Where will we put all of these people? Who will pay to house, clothe and feed them? Many states are bankrupt and our economy cannot support the millions of people who will be affected by this. I honestly do not believe that a mass evacuation will take place. It will be far easier and cheaper for the government to let the people die.

There is a military surplus store in my town that has tons of military items in it. The guy who owns it is an old war vet. Now I went there in earlier this year(probably around december) and I asked him what gas mask would be best if i ever actually needed it to survive. There were a few different types there but he pointed me in the direction of the full face one that you pull over your head. Came with a nice filter and extra glass eye piece so i am pretty happy. Since all this has happened, I am glad that I have a good gas mask. They're not too expensive. $16.50

.......hey fellow ATS'ers, Isaac here nice to meet you ...wish it was under different circumstances..
Just my thoughts.....looking at the fact that much of New Orleans, surprisingly, never went through the same high foreclosures that the rest of the US did, at least according to the state..and the additional fact that much of the Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida coasts will make prime locations for refineries on the coast....check WiKi for the facts about the LOOP..it's where strategic petroleum and gas storage takes place, I think it's a land grab...plain and simple.... It's where our strategic petroleum/gas reserves are located in a vast series of caverns mined out of salt...no BS....all the way around the g.o.m , sometimes as far inland as 200 miles. There are many companies who store liquefied natural gas and oil in these mined caverns. Salt dome storage, it's called....I think that given the size of the oil deposit under the continental shelf,.. they will never leave it alone. Buy property on the LA coast, because in a year or 2 it will be worth a premium to an oil refiner. At least try to hold on to your home ownership if you live on the coast if they relocate you, make some money off of these evil people down the road.

BENZENE [not the same as the "benzene series" you are mixed up about] is specifically C6H6 and is lethal even in the smallest of quantity. EPA recommended exposure is maximum four parts per billion. EPA have published their measurements made a few weeks ago in Louisiana being 3300 parts per billion.

Overall the hope is to develop pre-exposure / during exposure /post exposure regimens for all the people who are involved. Just because those heroic citizens can handle the spins and the high and still walk to their shower at the end of the day, does not mean that they are not being compromised!! I would have them all on support herbs ..

No worries, we are not going to be evacuated unless all that Methane goes up, and then we won't need to be evacuated because we'll either be tsunamied or fried!
The "Bucket Brigade" is a simple, but effective, tool that dozens of communities are using to find out for themselves what chemicals are in the air. Armed with their own data and information about the health effects of chemicals, these communities are winning impressive reductions of pollution, safety improvements and increasing enforcement of environmental laws

Best protection - aside from getting the hell out of there - would be large amounts of activated charcoal, which is capable of adsorbing VOCs of almost all kinds extremely well. If I were down there, I'd be taking a TBS once every hour or two (just mix it in water). Its cheap and very effective...
I prefer to get both coconut and bamboo and mix them together (and no, I'm not affiliated, this is just where I buy mine)...
