Coming Home - Geographical Disadvantage

So - here's where we are right now about Algiers:

I've spoken three times now with the Legislative Resource Center, who has been trying to work the issue with the authorities over on the West Bank.

The answer is no.

Orleans Parish is NOT authorized to return, and Jefferson Parish authorities will not allow Algiers to pass through.

The problem, of course, is that "there's still so much water in Orleans Parish". I confess that the conversation became somewhat circular, as I continued to point out that Orleans Parish includes a dry place on the West Bank, and they continued to be understanding... but inflexible.

They suggested I try to talk to the Jefferson Parish authorities about it. I did try...the circuits are busy there (duh).

I'm so sorry.

    keeping us up to date has been the biggest blessing for this communtiy. I used to live in Aurora Gardens (husband Navy was out at Belle Chasse) but still have friends in the neighborhood. I'm helping them to check on their place. They are extremely grateful for all of the info I can pass along.

    I just listened to Jackie Clarkson on WWL radio (Sep 4th, 7:30pm CST) state that people from Algiers are NOT going to be allowed back and that Algiers may be going into Military lock down due to the fact that many authorities and agencies are basing out of Algiers.

    She also said, there was minimal roof damage, there is till running water and flushing toilets.

    Will send more as I learn it.
