Nate, stop watching CNN. They have gotten about 80% of what they are reporting wrong!!! Earlier, they reported NO escaped damage and flooding....The NO I know has lots of flooding and lots of damage.
MSNBC showed video from WWLTV from streets of NO, and I must say its not as bad as expected and thats great.
Alot of trees down and some parts of roofs off, but structures are still there and seemed like canal street and burbon and downton area isnt that bad water wise.
Seemed like Tornadoes are the big concern right now. Everyone can start breathing in NO.
Everyone can't start breathing in NO. In areas of NO, there is 8-10 feet of water, people stranded on their roofs because their house is flooded and they had to get on their roof or they would drown.
These News stations have their reporters in certain areas of the city reporting ONLY on what they can see. If their area happens to be somewhat free from flooding or collapsed buildings, that is what they report. That is no indication of how the entire city is faring.
Shepard Smith reported from Bourban Street If you had plans to come to NO next week and party, come on over, the party will be on....or something to that effect. IMO, not only is that not a professional thing to say during something like this but it's not accurate.
