Latest from the City

Just hung up with my second mom in Algiers. They are planning a foray down General Meyer and River Road today, and I'll hopefully learn more then. Here's what's going on now, either via radio reports, or just right out the windows:

  • The radio is also reporting the ship on the levee near the foot of Pacific Street (Old Algiers / the Point). Levee fine still.
  • "Everything from Donner Canal back to the Intercoastal Canal is questionable" in terms of flooding.
  • The middle of Terrytown is not flooded, but perimeter streets apparently are.
  • Sheriff Harry Lee has authorized a "shoot after one warning" if anyone is going into houses after dark.
More later...
