A flood wall broke and water from Lake Pontchartrain is flooding the city at an alarming rate. According to WWLTV.com, residents will probably be allowed back in town in a week, with identification only, but only to get essentials and clothing. You will then be asked to leave and not come back for one month.
That’s approximately six weeks without a home.
I’ve heard from one of the New Orleans food blogs and they’re out of state and all right, considering their house is under 12 feet of water. Ive yet to hear word from the others.
As for the rest of the City? It remains to be seen…
