Rethinking Mass Evacuation of Gulf Coast

On June 23, 2010, investigative journalist Wayne Madsen had an exclusive (for subscribers only) report claiming that his sources in the federal government, specifically the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the US Army Corps of Engineers, told him that emergency planners are dealing with a prospective “dead zone”  within a 200 mile radius from the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf. Madsen wrote:

“A looming environmental and population displacement disaster is brewing in the Gulf. The oil dispersant used by BP, Corexit 9500, is seen by FEMA sources as mixing with evaporated water from the Gulf and absorbed by rain clouds producing toxic precipitation that threatens to kill all marine and land animals, plant life, and humans within a 200-mile radius of the Deepwater Horizon disaster site in the Gulf. Adding to the worries of FEMA and the Corps of Engineers is the large amounts of methane that are escaping from the cavernous grotto of oil underneath the Macondo drilling area of Gulf of Mexico.

…federal officials dealing with the short- and long-term impact of the oil disaster report that the “dead zone” created by a combination of methane gas and Corexit toxic rain will force the evacuation and long-term abandonment of cities and towns within the 200-mile radius of the oil volcano.”

Madsen then wrote that “Plans are being put in place for the mandatory evacuation of” the following 18 cities and towns: New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Mandeville, Hammond, Houma, Belle Chase, Chalmette, Slidell, Biloxi, Gulfport, Pensacola, Hattiesburg, Mobile, Bay Minette, Fort Walton Beach, Panama City, Crestview, and Pascagoula.

I sorted the 18 cities/towns by the states they’re in and looked up their population numbers. The figures given below vary as to the year: some are 2010 estimates; others are from the 2000 Census. Click the state’s name for the source of the population figures.

Louisiana:

  • Baton Rouge: 227,818 pop.
  • Belle Chasse: 9,848
  • Chalmette: 32,069
  • Houma: 32,393
  • Mandeville: 10,489
  • New Orleans: 484,674
  • Slidell: 25,695

Mississippi:

  • Biloxi: 50,644
  • Gulfport: 71,127
  • Hattiesburg: 44,779
  • Pascagoula: 26,200

Alabama:

  • Bay Minnette: 8,043
  • Mobile: 197,607

Florida:

  • Crestview: 14,766
  • Fort Walton Beach: 18,880
  • Panama City: 36,644
  • Pensacola: 53,820

Added together gives a total of 1,363,135 residents of the 18 Gulf coast cities/towns who are slated for evacuation, according to Madsen.

Remember this?

The population of New Orleans just before Hurricane Katrina in August 2005 was 454,865. As we all know, the city’s federal flood protection levee system failed, resulting in the worst civil engineering disaster in American history. 80% of the city was flooded. By the time the hurricane approached the city, most residents had evacuated. But tens of thousands of residents remained in the city and had to be rescued or otherwise made their way to shelters of last resort at the Louisiana Superdome or the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. What resulted was a monumental human (and pet animal) tragedy. Over 1,500 people died in Louisiana; some are still unaccounted for.

and this?

The population of pre-Katrina New Orleans was 454,865, which is 33.5% of the population of the 18 Gulf coast cities and towns that Madsen claims are on FEMA’s plans for evacuation. Put another way, the total population of the 18 cities/towns is almost 3 times that of New Orleans’.

How do the feds and the four state governments think they can manage the evacuation of so many?

Even more incredible/insane is this map (see below), the origin and source of which is unknown. The map was first posted by Chet Lockett on June 28 on the Morning Liberty blog:

Where will 20 to 50 million people go?

Meanwhile, the government denies there are evacuation plans.

  8. Doubtless, most will stay behind until their options are fairly close to nil. And, as I’ve said too many times, we need only refer to the protracted (sic) “Rodney King Riots” to see exactly how things are most likely to unfold during the exodus. Whereupon, the ordinary secretary, and Joe-six pack will grab a gun, round-up the provisions for like 2 days, and he/she will proceed to go on a ‘shopping’ spree by day three.

    Nonsense. Nature has always been far more destructive of both species and habitat than has man. You need to study history, geology and anthropology a LOT more just as a start.

    I have lived on the Gulf Gulf Coast my entire life (over 50 years) and I have seen times when we had tar balls on the beaches at Galveston and Freeport as big as baseballs. Tankers pumped their bilges offshore and the platforms sometimes leaked as well. It is a fact of life here- get used to it not being the end of the world.

        • A/ I don’t know

          Looking at Wikipedia – we are currently (through human activity – I think) sending 140,000 species to extinction per year.

          Apart from the extinction of Neanderthals in Iberia 24,000 years ago (because of Homo sapiens?) – no other human extinction is mentioned. However many large mammals disappeared at the end of the Ice Age (and more recently) – but the jury is out – this could of been because of human activity – hunting etc.

          As for the corexit – it is causing the oil to sink – and to permeate the fauna (the food chain) – I find it almost impossible to believe that the use of corexit can be helpful to humans – if nature has any defense, I imagine corexit is destroying that.

          Like

        • Computing the gallons of corexit vs. the gallons of gulf water is relevant if your only concern is what the environment will look like 100-200 years from now.

          If you are concerned about the toxicity present now, and the dangers it poses, then you must limit the water variable to that which has actually been exposed to the chemical, and factor in its’ path from there.

          The oil and chemicals are contaminating the area as bad as they are precisely because they are NOT evenly mixed throughout the gulf waters.
