Governor: Everyone Must Leave New Orleans

Associated Press Writer


The governor of Louisiana says everyone needs to leave New
Orleans due to flooding from Hurricane Katrina. "We've sent buses in. We will be
either loading them by boat, helicopter, anything that is necessary," Gov.
Kathleen Blanco said. Army engineers trying to plug New Orleans' breached levees
struggled to move giant sandbags and concrete barriers into place, and the
governor said Wednesday the situation was growing more desperate and there was
no choice but to abandon the flooded city.
