Boston evacuation plan "useless"

The deficits of Boston's plan to evacuate their city sounds vaguely like those in New Orleans. Some of them are listed in "Hub evac plan useless: Traffic jams mean 'you're dead'":

# Shaky plans for those who cannot "self-evacuate" in their own cars;
# No concrete plan to ensure hospitals and nursing homes are rapidly evacuated;
# No plans for prison evacuations;
# Lack of a clear mass notification mechanism after a disaster, terror attack or other "critical incident";
# No designated mass shelter - like New Orleans' Superdome - that would be stocked with food, water and medical supplies in the event of a catastrophe;
# Confusing traffic plans that could result in dangerous gridlock
