Taking no chances in Galveston

According to this AP article at Breitbart.com:
[O]fficials in Texas were taking no chances Monday as Tropical Storm Rita headed for the gulf.

With the storm still more than 1,000 miles away, the island city of Galveston ordered a voluntary evacuation to start Tuesday, and the Texas National Guard recalled ... members ... in Louisiana to prepare.


Residents who can't evacuate on their own will be able to take buses to shelters starting Wednesday.... And in another lesson from New Orleans' troubled evacuations, Galveston Mayor Lyda Ann Thomas said residents who take the buses will be able to bring their pets with them, as long as the animals are caged.


Galveston... was wiped out 105 years ago this month by a hurricane that remains one of the deadliest in U.S. history.
