In 2013, the City of New Orleans and evacuteer.org external link unveiled new artwork to mark the 17 designated City evacuation pick-up points where citizens may go during a mandatory evacuation.

How Mandatory Evacuations Works



In the case of a dangerous or severe storm, generally Category 3 hurricane or higher, the City will call a mandatory evacuation. During a mandatory evacuation all citizens must leave the City of New Orleans until officials have designated the city safe for re-entry.

How To Leave Town

The City provides transportation assistance for Orleans Parish residents and/or tourists who cannot self-evacuate during a mandatory city-wide evacuation. Citizens who can leave town in their own transportation should leave as early as possible, and be aware that roads will change to contraflow, with all roads flowing out of town.



If you have medical or mobility needs and cannot get to your closest evacuspot , you must call 311 or go to ready.nola.gov to sign up for the
Special Needs Registry.

Register for City-Assisted Evacuation



All citizens must register for City-Assisted Evacuation in order to leave town using City resources. After registering, citizens must go to one of 17 evacuspots, designated City evacuation pick-up points marked by evacuspot artwork. From their evacuspot, citizens will be transported to Union Pacific Terminal bus station, for outbound transportation to State and Federal shelters. Find the closest evacuspot here.

From the window of your rented limousine I caught your pretty blue eyes
One day soon you're gonna reach sixteen painted lady in the city of lies

Ah do ya know my name? Do I look the same?
You know I'm the one you want baby I must be the one you need yeah

Clutching pages from your teenage dream in the lobby of the Hotel Paradise
Through the circus of the L.A. queens how fast you learn the downhill slide

Oh, I don't like this game still don't know your name
You know I'm the one you want yes ooh yes I must a-be the one you need need need need yeah yeah yeah yeah

Oh you got to tell me

Just a minute just a minute

Lips like cherries on the brow of our queen come on flash and brush your eyes
Said you dug me since you were thirteen then you giggle as you heave and sigh

Oh do ya know my name? Do I look the same?
Baby I got to tell you I'm the one you want yes I know I'm the one you need yeah yeah

C'mon get it yeah c'mon now c'mon now c'mon now

Hours hours with the moments in between oh baby how the time flies
The fun of comin' oh the pain in leavin' won't ya dry those silver eyes?

Oh, do you know my name? Do I look the same?
You know I'm the one you want ooh ooh yeah yeah I must be the one you need yeah

Ooh yeah that's right
Ooh yeah that's right
Ooh that's right
That's right that's right
Ooh yeah that's right
That's right

(cough)

In my time of dying, want nobody to mourn
All I want for you to do is take my body home

Well, well, well, so I can die easy (X2)

Jesus, gonna make up my dyin' bed.
Meet me, Jesus, meet me. Meet me in the middle of the air
If my wings should fail me, Lord. Please meet me with another pair

Well, well, well, so I can die easy (X2)

Jesus, gonna make up.. somebody, somebody...
Jesus gonna make up... Jesus gonna make you my dyin' bed

Oh, Saint Peter, at the gates of heaven... Won't you let me in
I never did no harm. I never did no wrong

Oh, Gabriel, let me blow your horn. Let me blow your horn
Oh, I never did, did no harm.

I've only been this young once. I never thought I'd do anybody no wrong
No, not once.

Oh, I did somebody some good. Somebody some good...
Oh, did somebody some good. I must have did somebody some good...
Oh, I believe I did

I see the smiling faces
I know I must have left some traces

And I see them in the streets
And I see them in the field
And I hear them shouting under my feet
And I know it's got to be real
Oh, Lord, deliver me
All the wrong I've done
You can deliver me, Lord
I only wanted to have some fun.

Hear the angels marchin', hear the' marchin', hear them marchin',
hear them marchin', the' marchin'

Oh my Jesus... (repeat)

Oh, don't you make it my dyin', dyin', dyin'...cough

(Studio Chatter: "That's gonna be the one 'asn't it?"
"Come have a listen, then. "
Oh yes, thank you.")
