picard just remember that there is no wow factor in showing the areas that didn't get flooded. The cable networks are trying to keep their ratings up by showing pictures of the devestation.

ptlomeo, I'm confident in Mizar's survival skills, they are well prepared and even have a small boat. Per earlier news conferences, FEMA even stated that Jefferson Parrish was not hit as hard as areas east of it. FEMA described damage there as trees, power lines and roof damage, however Mizar said his house held up well.


Normally I wouldn't post because I don't have a link. I've been following this thread closely.

I was listening to a Chicago Radio station and they interviewed two DJ's that had to spend the night in the SuperDome. They spoke of the French Quarter, the 9th Ward where Mizar is.

They said that the area was virtually untouched. They were a bit surprised.

I also spoke with someone that is in Baton Rouge. He said that the towers in New Orleans are not down. The calls are not going through because of the overload of cellphone calls. That is what his cellphone company told him.

Hopefully I won't lose points or respect because I don't have links to prove my info. Hope this helps. Hope that Mizar is okay.

Anyone out there with reports from Gulfport, MS. I know Biloxi got it bad and Gulfport got it worse. I fear that Gulfport has suffered almost total destruction.


Word from the meteorological world is the storm was going through an eye wall replacement cycle as it was making land, that part of the reason the winds dropped from 175mph to 140mph. As bad as the storm was it could have been a lot worse and NOLA barely missed the worst of it. I believe that the Superdome was pushed to the limit, had it experienced the brunt of the storm........

I'm seeing breaking news on cnn.com that a 2 block wide stretch of a levee has been breached. Any word on this?

The levee at the lake has broken and water is rising an inch every five minutes. This is rapidly flooding the entire city. According to reports there are white caps on canal st and water is rising rapidly.

Watching it on BBC... 80% of New Orleans is underwater. The whole lake is emptying into downtown.

This is much much worse than yesterdays flooding.

LEVEE MAP (LARGE)

Levee 5 has broken. There is a 200ft long break that may cause further structural failures of levee's.

Pumps are still offline.

Told you guys, it looked pretty bad yesterday, and that footage was in the afternoon, if levee had broken then water will just keep on filling the city up, hope mizar got that boat together!

Hopefully WW can get in touch with Mizar again to see how things are.

Yeah i agree dangermouse would be good if worldwatcher could get ahold of him, but she tried last night and couldn't. See I don't think everyone here was seeing the same footage I was seeing at the local news channel in LA, the major news channels didn't seem to pick up on the extensive flooding in NO.

NO, flooded


This was typical scene I was seeing, remember this was shot in the afternoon yesterday. Now since then there's been a report of a major breach of the levee about 2 blocks long, with water rising an inch every 5 mins, this from a frantic call from hosptial staff at a place which until then had not recieved any flooding reported on CNN. I would say if mizar wasnt flooded last night, he is now.

Things were looking not so bad yesterday, but it seems the situation has changed...I'm watching the live coverage on FOX and amazing swaths of land are underwater and there are some fires breaking out across the city. Looks very bad.

I pray that the water stayed away from Mizar but- since he said it was coming up near his house at 11--- it looks ominous right now looking at the news stations. I hope he put the canoe inside his house instead of trusting that little bit of water in it against the storm. they can maybe get 3 people in that if they are careful and then go back if they need to.


Right now on Foxnews they are announcing that they have declared Martial Law in NO -- and the tide is rising and the central business district has water rising and they don't know why....

Sad -- so sad

Keep in mind that there has been a tremendous amount of water dumped along the Mississippi River and all it's tributaries. All that water has to go somewhere eventually.

We may not see the real effects of all the potential flooding for several days.

A very astute (and scary) point, for those in LA.... The worst of this may be yet to come, as unbelievable as that is...
