Today's Exercise in Logic

First there's this, from "It's race against time to save Ike stalwarts":
Only four deaths had been blamed on Ike so far: two in Texas and two in Louisiana.
Then this, from "Report: Metrolink Engineer Texting With Teen Moments Before Killer Commuter Crash":
a wreck that killed 25 people
And finally this "Van Carrying Cheerleaders Crashes Killing 2, Injuring 14"

Moral of the story: When evacuating from a hurricane do not take the train, and be real careful about vans too.

UPDATE: Sadly the Ike toll is up to 30, but even then more than half of those appear to have been in areas not under evacuation orders; I stand by my advice above.
