Jefferson Parish as we know it is gone

reports the normally chipper Aaron Broussard, Parish President. The director of emergency services for Jefferson Parish broke down in tears during an interview as he pleaded for food and water for the parish emergecy center, which is out of supplies.

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

If you know something from viewing on-line video, or from talking to someone on the ground, please let me know at

Interested. Keep Blogging!
