All Of New Orleans Without Power As Hurricane Ida Lashes Louisiana

Source: Huffington Post

All of New Orleans is without power amid the ongoing assault by Hurricane Ida, the local energy company said Sunday night.

Entergy Louisiana told The Times-Picayune that Ida had already caused “catastrophic transmission damage” affecting the entire city. The only power in New Orleans is now coming from generators.

Ida hit the Louisiana coastline as a Category 4 behemoth, lashing the state with 150-mph winds, tying as the fifth-strongest hurricane to ever hit the mainland U.S. It weakened to a Category 3 storm as it closed in on New Orleans, but the sheer size of Ida threatened the massive levee system that has been rebuilt and strengthen around the iconic city.

The National Weather Service’s New Orleans office said later Sunday that it expected strong winds and heavy rain throughout the night, urging residents to remain sheltered in place.

2. The federal response this time should be better than Katrina

I just have a feeling about that. Also I predict no one would be throwing paper towels.

4. It doesn't matter: the media is on a "hate Biden" rampage right now.

GOP dollars want to use this hurricane to continue that hate.
They are wringing their hands looking for issues.
Just wait and see. When the storm is over, there will no nothing but complaints and accusations.

5. The media hate will not affect what happens on the ground

In the post hurricane response. Biden and his team will do what is necessary to assist the people in the areas affected.

7. Honore was just on The Last Word

Sounding pretty apocalyptic about New Orleans. No electricity. No water. No sewer. How do you sustain several hundred thousand people under those conditions? You don't, he said, without evacuating them. From New Orleans.

Whew

8. This is what's worrying me. It will take up to 3 weeks to get power restored. Water treatment plants

will need to have power restored first if generators aren't available, and water boil will be necessary. Rachel M. is just now saying all 8 big transmission lines into the city were downed. Entergy said it may take up to 3 weeks to get power restored to all of the city. My oldest sister & her family stayed put. They have a generator but the intense heat & water situation are concerning. I'm going to urge them to go to stay w their oldest daughter in AL 2 hours away.
