Well how silly is it to have to build a new plan? Why wasn't there an old plan? This is a gulf coast city that is below sea level which is something I would think would warrant having an existing plan. Why can't those choppers fly in supplies? You know, the really big helicopters that carry supplies for the military...in dangling CONX boxes...full of MRE's and water and clothes, and MEDICINE? All the 'good and bad' is terrific. But they didn't think it through.
