CNN Is Reporting

The Superdome crowd is being bused to the AstroDome in Houston. That’s the plan, anyway.
316 Miles.
Tens of thousands of people.
And the freeway overpasses surrounding the downtown area are filled with people heading for the Superdome, in sight of it, but who can’t get to it because of the water. And when the buses make it to the Superdome, getting the folks out is still up in the air. Right now they talking ferrying them out from the Dome to the buses.

    This is fucking stupid. Why buses? All the overland routes into the city are either destroyed are precariously dangerous. The best way to get large amounts of people out is on the river, by ship or barge. You’d need to get them there down Canal Street, but then, not nearly the same worries as with buses.
