The government on Sunday advised people in south Texas to prepare for possible evacuations, with Hurricane Dean heading into the Gulf of Mexico. "If I was a Texas resident, particularly along the southeast coast, I would make sure I was ready," R. David Paulison, the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, told reporters. "This is not a time to be complacent." The Category 4 storm is on a course for nothern Mexico, but could shift and hit the region around Brownsville, Texas, along the state's southeastern coast, Paulison said.
