A little late, Nagin

Despite the urgings of Pres. Bush and hurricane experts to announce manadatory evacuation of the city before landfall of Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin "worried about the legality of ordering people out when New Orleans has few safe hurricane shelters for them to evacuate to."

However, Nagin now sees fit to authorize law enforcement officers and the U.S. military to force the evacuation of all residents who refuse to heed orders to leave the dark, dangerous city. "The move comes after some citizens bluntly told authorities who had come to deliver them from the waterlogged city that they would not leave their homes and property."
