Geography According to the NYTimes

I was shocked to learn how vaste Hurricane Rita was, in "Smaller Towns Bore the Brunt of Rita's Force", By JENNIFER STEINHAUER

Hurricane Rita was broadly perceived as the Chihuahua to Hurricane Katrina's bulldog and something dodged rather than survived. But looking at small towns like this one, it is clear that from Shreveport in the north to Pecan Island in the south, from Houston in the east to New Orleans in the west, Hurricane Rita was as strong as its predecessor, or stronger.

Travelling west from Houston to New Orleans sure covers a lot of small towns!
