Superstorm Evacuation2.jpg

In this Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012 photo, David Bagatelle walks in flood waters from his home in the wake of superstorm Sandy in Hoboken, N.J. Bagatelle stayed home with his his wife and seven day old baby, surrounded by water outside, but dry inside. Despite days of dire forecasts and explicit warnings, hundreds of thousands of people in New York and New Jersey ignored mandatory evacuation orders as Superstorm Sandy closed in. Now, after scores of deaths and harrowing escapes, emergency officials say they will look at what more can be done to persuade residents to get out when their lives are in danger.
