National Family Affected by "Water Bowl"

It makes sense that Texas, Arkansas and the non-coastal regions of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama would take in hurricane evacuees. But this mass exodus is a national event.
This one is even bigger than the Dust Bowl of the 1930's. Perhaps tyis is the Water Bowl of the 21st century or something like that. New Orleans has always been know as a bowl. Now it is known as a watery bowl.


Minnesota:Tim Pawlenty (Governor of Minnesota) announced Saturday that the state is preparing to host as many as 5,000 evacuees for a year or longer.

Chicago: to receive refugees.

Connecticut: 100 houses available for refugees

California: The Terminator opens doors of Kahl-ee-forn-ya
