"Texas officials scrambled to reroute several inbound highways to accommodate outbound traffic, but many people were waiting so long they ran out of gas and were forced to park."
"We know you're out there," Houston Mayor Bill White said of the congestion that extended well into Louisiana. "We understand there's been fuel shortages." - AP
So they are all trying to evacuate like they were told to do, and (surprise) the highway has turned into a parking lot. So then they ran out of gas, and now it's LITERALLY a partking lot.
So now they are now parked far away from their homes, waiting for the storm and waiting for someone to show up with gas, and wondering which one will get there first.
In four days will they be waiting for someone to show up with food, water AND gas?
Lord, I hope not.
