3. I just heard there are people in Galveston
(on CNN) - The mayor said they're pretty much stuck there, now, and they'll probably open a shelter somewhere.

I dunno.
Get in a car, which you may or may not have.
Fill it with gas, which you may or may not afford - that is, if you can find any.
Get on a congested interstate system that until a few hours ago, was still open to two-way traffic.
Find a place to stay: friends, relatives, hotels....

If you're poor and alone, apparently you're dead.
