Evacuation of Superdome continues amid tension, chaos

Convoys of buses ferried refugees from the squalor of the Superdome on Thursday as thousands of other residents groped on foot through debris and floodwaters many unsure of their destinations in a massive exodus from New Orleans. By midday, more than 5,000 homeless New Orleans residents had been transplanted to the Astrodome more than 350 miles west in Houston. Other cities also offered lodging and public facilities to survivors of Hurricane Katrina. President Bush described the evacuation as vital to preventing further loss of life.
