Algiers - Phones, Water and Power

Another Algiers-specific update:

I can't speak for the rest of the city, but Algiers, at least, has sporadic phone service. However, they do not seem to be able to call out. If you have not heard from someone who you believe to still be there, keep trying to call. I am getting through more often than not...

Sounds like the earlier rumor about problems with the water in Algiers were false. Everybody is still using the water.

Also, Algiers has a power station that apparently remained dry. With luck, they'll come back 'online' soonest. I have read that Entergy will require a complete rebuilt of the system, but that same article also said there were isolated areas that were not as damaged. Read the article here (it was posted before the Times-Picayune was evacuated earlier today).

    Thank-you for your coverage of this area. My brother and his family have evacuated and are in Jackson MS (without power). They live on ALigers point caticornered from the library.

    I have been able to provide them with some relief by relaying what you have shared via NOLA and your blog.

    Thank-you, I am not sure if you are aware of some of the solace you have provided.

    Thank you for your information. It is always good to hear information from home. Especially when it is good news.

    Hello, we live in Bocage in Algiers. We're in Dallas now, but are looking for information on Rue Nicole or any other streets. Power? Water? Flooding? Roof Damage? Please help!!!!
