As if it isn't enough another major hurricane is making its way to southeast Texas and coastal Louisiana. It is expected to hit the Lone Star State this weekend.
Again folks are being asked to evacuate, but I guess they will this time after seeing the fury of Katrina.
To think that Texas had just welcomed thousands of evacuees after Hurricane Katrina hit, and many are now having to flee again. What a pity.
