New Orleans is now plagued by one catastrophe after another. Repair efforts on the levee breaches, particularly at the 17th Street Canal in Bucktown, have failed and Lake Pontchartrain is draining steadily into the city. Floodwaters are coming into the oak-canopied St Charles corridor. Water main lines are breaking. Martial law is in effect. There is complete anarchy.
The best place for updates is streaming radio on WWL 870AM. Unofficial neighborhood-by-neighborhood assessments, if available, are on NOLA and WWL-TV.
My heart goes out to y’all. God bless.
