    ‘Prosperity gospel’ pastor worth $50M, with mega church in Houston. These are his hurricane relief efforts for the locals in his area. Could just open his church to shelter people.

        Yes, I think they did learn from Katrina: I read an interesting article about the benefits/disadvantages of evacuating vs staying in place, which suggested some lessons had been learned. I agree with the piece about metropolitan growth being partly to blame (hard to disagree really), but it is also worth remembering that this is apparently a once in 800 years scale of event.
