gustav, katrina, the human condition and the cone of uncertainty (2 of 2)

I wrote recently about the "cone of uncertainty".

The impending landfall of Hurricane Gustav has me wondering about what happens when the uncertainty disappears and we are faced with the worst possible outcome from the previously open-ended cone.

How do we respond? What have we learned? And do we really think that we are in control?
