(NEWSfMtosbyDonCotiscyl Report From America: Robbers Haven From Nuclear Head For Attack — Or Hurricane Wrong Car By PETER M. ZOLLMAN NEW ORLEANS (UPI) Fans of World War II strategy movies and science-Mellon flicks would feel right at home walking past the thick steel door and down two flights of stairs lo the city's surrealistic Hurricane Operations Center. A loud bell rings in the distance as a visitor nears the bottom slep. The smell of filtered, conditioned air is immediately apparent. Pale institutional green is the dominant color and Die overwhelming impression is one of a government installation. Signs saying "FBt - A Theft From Your Government Is a Theft From You" cover many doors. The center was designed during the so-called Cold War as a seal of government during a nuclear attack. Today it serves another purpose: A control center for city operations when a hurricane — a child of nature that can release energy the equivalent of several atomic bombs — zeroes in on the area. "This was to be a showcase for the nation to copy," city Civil Defense Director Charles Erdman says, stepping into the map and briefing room — a circular area about 30 feet in diameter, not unlike the war strategy rooms with their boards and charts so popular in war movies. '"You can call it the war games room or the map and radar room — but whatever you call it, this is where the heads of government will battle your disaster, whether natural or manmade," Erdman says. Erdman and his assistant, John Cowart, are proud of Die infrequently visited center. They explain iU operations carefully, standing in front of 12-by-12-foot maps, which still plot the hour-by-houi courses of last year's tropical storms and hurricanes. "The minute we have the first signs of a tropical storm out in the ocean this season," Erdman says, pointing to Ihe red, orange and green circles and lines, "all this will come down and we'll start fresh." The center, officially named the Brig. Gen. Robert Y. Maraist Civil Defense Control Center, is buried under New- Orleans' only hill, about a mile from the Lake Pontchartrain shoreline and eight miles from downtown. At the slightest threat of a hurricane, operations intensify. By the time a storm warning is issued, the center of city operations has shifted to the forlresslike bunker under two- foot-lhick concrete walls. Police and fire units for much of southeast Louisiana can be dispatched from the cavern. U[Ao-U>e minute reports on rescue shelters and disaster aid units are kept in the control room. Wilh empty chairs and desks neatly marked "Military Liaison," "Salvation Army," "Director," "Parkways," "Mayor" and so forth, Ihe room and satellite operation rooms for police, fire, utility services and the telephone company stand in silent readiness. "There's no reason for people to be surprised by a hurricane," Erdman says. "They give enough warning. "Even so, every year we have problems wilh people who are caught off guard or try to beat the storms."
