TREME UNDERGROUND Treme is an old historically poor neighborhood just outside the French Quarter. Many residents here are independently-minded and a bit funky. After authorities strongly suggested that people leave, many in Treme went underground. When the military questioned this man, he said he wouldn't evacuate because he wouldn't leave his dog. They took his information, gave him a generator radio and a couple of packs of cigarettes and told him to be safe.
