Escambia Finally Orders Mandatory Evacuation

Sunday afternoon, Escambia County Emergency Management finally ordered mandatory evacuation of "people in low-lying areas, mobile homes and travel trailers."

Coincidentally, perhaps, it happened only after the first, drenching rain squall came racing through Pensacola Beach and Gulf Breeze at 1 p.m. and a formal statement was issued by the president of the United States. (A statement, one must add, spoiled only by Mr. Bush's "Grade F" effort to minimize another brewing storm in Iraq.)
