Meanwhile Rockport mayor has asked the residents to evacuate to safer place. If the people don’t want to evacuate, he has advised them to jot down identifying information on their bodies.

On Friday, the mayor, Pro Tempore, Patrick Rios advised the resident of the city to either evacuate or make sure their remains can be identified.

While addressing a press conference he said, “We’re suggesting if people are going to stay here, mark their arm with a Sharpie pen with their name and Social Security number…We hate to talk about things like that…It’s not something we like to do, but it’s the reality, people don’t listen.”
