Houston mayor Sylvester Turner imposes curfew to prevent looting

Back in 2005, while hurricane Katrina brought life to a halt in New Orleans, it was people who created problems for people more than nature. After the natural disaster, looters looted everything from jewelry to grocery stores.

Taking lessons from history, Sylvester Turner, the mayor of Houston imposed a curfew in the city to prevent looting.


Turner said that some people are planning to take advantage of the situation. No one need to be out before 5 in the morning.

The curfew would be from 12 midnight until 5 a.m., until further orders. Such curfews helped during the hurricane season of 2008.
