So it's kind of difficult to send people away from danger when you don't know where the danger is. Number two, that kind of evacuation in a couple days – the logistics would have been crazy. Chaotic 2005 traffic with Hurricane Rita lurking was tragic. No official has issued evac order for Houston now. Calm and care! #Harvey.feedback
