You are correct. I lived in Louisiana and went through Katrina and Rita. Those people are sent home, not only for their safety but so they can
prepare their homes for hurricanes and tropical storms.
After living in Louisiana, I moved to just between Gulfport and Biloxi, and was on the beach the day of the oil spill. It was quite something to
watch, and be there for.
It's not only the oil that still sits at the bottom that worries me, but also the stuff they used to try and clean this all up. Honestly, I got
outta there as quickly as I could. The odor at night of the oil on the surface being burned, etc...and lets not forget, this area is America's true
wetlands. People seem to forget that the oil traveled all the way into the wetlands!
