Look & Leave Policy for Galveston Residents
Galveston was allowing residents onto the island this afternoon on a "look and leave" policy only. Each car was marked with "LL" to designate that it must exit by curfew. As word spread, I-45 the Gulf Freeway became a parking lot with cars trying to get on the island. A few minutes ago, news reports indicated that the "look and leave" policy was going to stop due to the number of police needed to monitor the overwhelming traffic and the number of incidents of looting that subsequently increased due to police being diverted to the handle the huge inflow.
