Jefferson Parish as we know it is gone
NOLA.come reports that the flooding from the 17th St. Canal is streaming into Metairie, and that refugees are fleeing over the Crescent City Connection in search of water, food and shelter.
Margaret Or on WDSU said the same yesterday of East Plaquemines after a flyover, and Sen. Mary Landrieu made an almost identical comment after flying over the Ninth Ward and St. Bernard.
I am trying to locate information on the condition of core city neighborhood flooding and will post it here as I can. If you have any info gleaned from media video or other sources, please share it with firstname.lastname@example.org
If you know something from viewing on-line video, or from talking to someone on the ground, please let me know at email@example.com
