As people in the Gulf Coast try to recover another hurricane is coming. Hurricane Rita is a category 5. Which means Rita is as strong as can be . More than 1,000 people have been ordered to evacuate in Texas and Louisiana. Officials have sent food, water, and troops to the effected areas.
For the second time residents in New Orleans must prepare them self and evacuate before the hurricane hits. Many are Katrina survivors that are still in shelters. Last time New Orleans was drowned under sea water because the levees broke. Now they're fixing them, but they have only been able to make them withstand 6 inches of rain. To me they just wasted their time because they're probably going to brake.
Experts think Rita will hit Friday or Saturday morning. On Wednesday Rita was in the Gulf of Mexico with winds of 165 mph. Hurricane Katrina which killed over 1,000 people was a category 4 when it hit land. On Tuesday Rita hit the Florida Keys. It didn't do much damage because it hadn't gained much strentgh. What would you do to help?
