Evacuation's scale challenging

Dallas Morning News | News for Dallas, Texas | Latest News: "Gulf Coast residents on Friday were running out of time and hope, their two-day flight to safe harbor still plagued by snarled traffic and gas shortages as Hurricane Rita continued on its deadly path.

'I feared the hurricane,' said Ruby Barber, a 52-year-old Beaumont social worker, waiting in a two-block-long line for gasoline in Jasper. 'But I fear more being on the side of the road with no gas.' In Rita's cross-hairs: the upper Texas Gulf Coast - particularly the oil and petrochemical centers of Beaumont and Port Arthur - and southwest Louisiana, where millions of residents were ordered to evacuate, including some as far north as Jasper County, Texas."
