I know it sounds like a potentially very bad situation! The people of New Orleans are definitely in my prayers!#2: Nancy Anthony (nancya) on Jul 11, 2019
Have 3 daughters and four grandkids there right now. They tell me they will be ok. They are north of Lake Pontchartrain. I'm still praying.#3: Jota (jota) on Jul 12, 2019

I'm in Kenner, just west of NOLA. We should be fine, this time. As long as the pumps keep working, all of the rain should be pumped away, and the expected 17' crest of the Mississippi is still below the 20' height of the levee. Baton Rouge, unfortunately, will get more of the impact than we will.#5: Tonia Bergh (tonia) on Jul 13, 2019
I can't keep the people of Louisiana off my mind today; I hope the storm doesn't stall as much as they were predicting.#6: Kristen Coolman (kristen) on Jul 13, 2019
Also, it's being blown out of proportion by the national news.#7: Kristen Coolman (kristen) on Jul 13, 2019
The mandatory evacuations are farther south, in the Delta. The problem is, Jefferson Parish (where I live, just west of NOLA) stretches all the way from the southern bank of Lake Pontchartrain to the Gulf coast. Grand Isle has a mandatory evacuation, and it IS in Jefferson Parish, but it's 90 miles south of New Orleans.#8: Norma Dee (norm0908) on Jul 13, 2019
Wow. Talk about fake news. So glad you are OK, Kristen.#9: Belita (belita) on Jul 13, 2019
Fake news is when people make up a story in order to deceive. This is a matter of being overly cautious. I sure wouldn't want to be the newsman who said not to worry, the levees will hold the water, and then they didn't.#10: Christian Heckmann Engelbrecht (CEngelbrecht) on Jul 19, 2019
God ain't watching. Ain't nobody here but us.
