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.
CURFEW UPDATE: I’m modifying the curfew to start at midnight (and still end at 5 am) to allow volunteers and others to do their great work.

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.
You are doing a great job @SylvesterTurner
