I'm right in the middle of this.. on the south side of Lake Pontchartrain Louisiana, next to New Orleans.

This is the first I've heard this though I know there is a storm brewing in the gulf. I don't have television.

Even Louisiana.gov doesn't have this info up yet.

I hope they do not need to evacuate, we had enough trouble last time.

My step father's in the hospital from a car accident.. I will not leave if they try to evac us. His son was in a nursing home during Katrina, (serious obesity, over 400 lbs) and they couldn't mobilize all the patients fast enough causing him to be killed.

Thanks for the heads up.

I hope none of you have to evac. But there sometime will be bound ot be a very large storm with concerns. Have you made any secondary plans or arrangements, just in case.

We wish youbest of luck, and that the coming storms either die down or remain tolerable.

Hey! I live in New Orleans too....and I didn't know about it either until I saw it on here (about the state of emergency)....This is the first time I remember a state of emergency being declared for just a tropical storm! Am I mistaken? It;s not that big of a deal, I have been through many tropical storms....

Your right.. this is the first time we have declared a state of emergency for 'only' a tropical storm.

In that light it seems strange. I wonder if the state gov knows something we don't know.

I wonder if this will stir up all the oil sitting on the bottom of the gulf that BP and the media are hiding and this stuff will come ashore and cause lots of havoc.

Tropical Depression 5 is no more. The enivronment was not conducive for it to organize.

My prayers are answered, and you guys all doged another bullet this time.

However, this is August, and the Tropics do really pick up around this time. Be prepared, and keep tracking storms.

I don't think we will know what is really going on until the last minute.....nothing seems right about this whole damn thing, you know?

Is it not unusual that a previous depression would stay around as this one did and redevelop? Take good care LA friends!

What does your intuition say? Perhaps the declaration of emergency isn't really about a storm, or oil slick. Could it be a drill to enforce some new control on the "property" of the corporation?

It does happen, but the weather just seems "off" around here...the HEAT is unbearable, and of course it is always hot here....but I don't remember it lasting this long (extreme heat)

I do not ever remember a declaration of emergency because of a tropical storm...they are nothing to us who live here. Most of us don't do anything unless it is over a category 2 hurricane. It's just a fact of life we are used to.There is nothing in the gulf right now to cause a state of emergency.....not even a tropical storm yet. My intuition says they are putting things in place in case the BOP falls and opens a huge hole with oil coming out at 100,000 psi and cannot be stopped.....so the resources are already in place....but they are using the reason of weather so as not to panic people......in case by some miracle they can prevent it. Sort of an insurance policy for them.

Wow, that target on the map is SO close to the exact location of where the Deepwater Horizon was --where the oil gusher was.. how odd..

I think La. needs a damn break.. wth?

Did they finish the massive New Orleans Surge Barrier yet?
