Thomas Mahan (R) and a man who asked not to be identified, pull a boat
from a crawfish pond between rain bands as Hurricane Lili pass through
Des Allemands, Louisiana October 3, 2002. Thousands of people fled the
region, which is 150 miles (240 km) west of New Orleans, on Wednesday
when Lili was still a ferocious Category 4 storm with 145 mile per hour
(232 kph) winds. REUTERS/Joe Skipper
