Morning, August 27, 2005: Kenner Mayor Begs Residents to Evacuate      Hurricane Katrina

       Phil Capitano, Mayor of Kenner (Jefferson Parish, Louisiana), issues an urgent announcement on the city website: “Residents of Kenner: I AM URGING, I AM BEGGING YOU TO LEAVE TOWN NOW! ...Hurricane Katrina is going to deal a devastating blow to Kenner...THIS IS A KILLER STORM...” Capitano states that “If you decide to stay, and again we strongly urge against of the most important things to have is an ax, pick, hammer or some type of device [t]hat will allow you to break through your roof and get away from flood waters..., and we do expect much of Kenner to be under water.” He continues, “I cannot emphasize enough to Kenner residents—the urgency, the absolute need to evacuate,” warning that the weakest spot is the parish line along Airline highway, where the levee board sandbags will only be six feet high, and thus, “they are going to be overrun.” [Kenner New Release, 8/29/2005]
