Lots happening this coming weekend. Raleigh Wide Open, including the grand opening of the Convention Center. Brooks & Dunn and ZZ Top at the Creek. The aforeposted emergency drill. Hurricane Hanna seems poised to put a damper on everyone's fun. Here's the latest forecast map:

This past weekends storm got me to thinking: When, if ever did the state of N.C. ever provide the level of bus transportation / evacutaion from the outer banks and barrier islands like what we saw this past weekend? Granted there’s not over a million people but there is still a lot of people out there.

Just curious if anyone recalls a cat 3,4 or 5 STORM that was forecasted to strike where the state sent buses and trains to transport those who depend on the Gov’t for their regular transportation day in a day out.

Hugo was a cat 3 I think when it struck South Carolina. I don’t recall evacuations however.
Yeah those poor peole without a vehicle and unable to fend for themselves. Their just victims in all this.
What a joke!
