Hurricane Ida Batters Louisiana, Leaving New Orleans Without Power

Some rough days (hopefully not too many more) for our Louisiana morons.

Rescuers set out in hundreds of boats and helicopters to reach people trapped by floodwaters and utility crews mobilized Monday after a furious Hurricane Ida swamped the Louisiana coast and made a shambles of the electrical grid in the sticky, late-summer heat.

One of the most powerful hurricanes ever to hit the U.S. mainland weakened into a tropical storm overnight as it pushed inland over Mississippi with torrential rain and shrieking winds, its danger far from over.

Ida was blamed for at least one death -- someone hit by a falling tree outside Baton Rouge. But with many roads impassable and cellphone service knocked out in places, the full extent of its fury was still coming into focus.

Unfortunately they expect to find that more people died during the storm.

...

The governor's office said damage to the power grid appeared "catastrophic." And officials warned it could be weeks before power is fully restored.

Weeks. Egad.


"For the most part, all of our levees performed extremely well -- especially the federal levees -- but at the end of the day, the storm surge, the rain, the wind all had devastating impacts," Edwards said. "We have tremendous damage to homes and to businesses."

Winds reached speeds of 105 mph. Below, a roof blown off of a building, which then landed on a traffic light structure.

Below, a historic music store -- literally blown down by the force of the hurricane.

How about this: We just stop rebuilding other places and we lower federal spending overall. That was more money can go into local governments through increased economic activity, and then the local populace can influence their local governments to prepare for somewhat predictable events like hurricanes hitting the southeastern United States?

I'm making the point that it makes a lot more sense to bail out American cities that have been destroyed by a natural disaster than Middle East cities that we engage in nation building.

Think of our lacking overall infrastructure and imagine those trillion being spent here instead.

But I'm not making a case to "bail out" New Orleans. I'm sure half the city's residents are already welfare queens anyway.

121 I'm finding a lot of a suspicious things about how this storm was reported.

For example, to determine the category of a hurricane, winds need to be measured at 20 feet off the ground, which is how it was always done.

Instead, the NOAA planes flying over the storm dropped instruments to measure the winds at TEN THOUSAND FEET, where the winds are always much stronger, then apparently reported that as the official number. WTF?

So it's wholly possible for a hurricane to be category 4 at 10,000 feet up, but a category 1 at 20 feet, which is where it should realistically be assessed.

So far this storm's winds hew more closely to a category 1 than a 4.

141 Winds reached speeds of 105 mph. Below, a roof blown off of a building, which then landed on a traffic light structure.

It made landfall at 150 mph, a strong Cat 4 -- Cat 5 starts at 157 mph sustained winds.

One reason it's gonna take time to restore power to NO is one of those huge metal transmission towers collapsed. A new one will have to be erected first, I think.

In a way, LA got a small bit of luck in that the eye path went midway between Baton Rouge and NO, so it wasn't a direct hit on either city.

But yeah, it is going to be a long slow painful recovery process.

I believe they use the 10000 foot readings to estimate the ground level winds. For instance 120 knot winds at 10000 feet might indicate 100 knot winds at the surface. Ultimately, you need to rely on the anemometer near the surface. Problem is, they sometimes go out with higher wind gusts.

I think they drop instruments which then measure the profile all the way down as they fall. How? I have no idea. If they drop it, it will move with the wind, but maybe they use GPS or inertia to figure out how fast it is moving.

Anyway, a profile like that would be a lot more accurate at determining accurate wind speed. If that is how they do it.

271 Recruiter is now 28 minutes late for this interview.

Fuck, dude. Come on.


One time when I was all set do interview a candidate, they disappeared on me. I got the call from the front desk that the recruit was on site, and I went to greet them. They were gone. I asked the desk person where they'd gone and she didn't know. She saw them with one of my co-workers.

I went to the interview room. No candidate. I called my co-worker, no answer. I started looking in all of the conference rooms and open offices. No candidate.

After about 30 minutes, my co-worker shows up and asks where'd I'd been. I'm angry, but I keep my cool and say I've been looking for my candidate. Co-worker says he took it upon himself to greet the candidate and take them to a room to be comfortable and wait. It didn't occur to co-worker to let anyone know where they were or what had happened.

335 Back in 2008, Hurricane Ike was the best thing to happen to Galveston Island since the WWII buildup of the shipbuilding industry.

Ike destroyed nearly every substandard structure, demolished all of the "projects", or caused what projects which remained to be condemned. Hood rats evacuated inland, as there were no more crackhouses or backyard shacks left in which to hide.

Crime rates plummeted to near-zero for the next two or three years, but have crept back up as development and expansion returns. And of course, they've rebuilt some "projects", but you'd best be a high-earning ethnic professional to afford to live there, OR a high-earning SSI, Medicare and every other Federal Grift recipient from the Protected Classes. They've priced the hood rats right out of Projects 2.0

They need a series of CATegory D-11s in New Orleans. A Caterpillar D-11 can clear a LOT of derelict structures in seemingly no time at all.

They've been laying groundwork for this for ages. Psucky has been repeating the line, "Everyone who wants to get out" over and over like a broken Furby. Other Biden spokesholes have been repeating the line that Americans have been warned since April they needed to get out.

I don't necessarily disagree. But there are a fair amount of people who didn't come directly into the country. Some transited in from other places like Pakistan, etc. and they were not tracked. Keep in mind the Afghan system of immigration (with all the records now in the hands of the Taliban) was less efficient then, let's say, our DHS, which is saying a lot. Irrespective, they should know now. All those people contacted the embassy, and then the embassy told them to F off. Or they left them outside the gate.

The so-called 'special relationship' came under further strain after the Pentagon was today accused of trying to blame Britain for making the number of people killed in Thursday's ISIS-K suicide bombing at Kabul airport worse than it could otherwise have been.

US security sources said they begged to shut down a gate being used at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Afghanistan's capital city before it was hit by the deadly jihadist attack -- but Britain wanted it kept open to continue its evacuation campaign.

That's meant to be a substitute for us leaving Bagram and a subtle way to say we still have strike capabilities in the region. We largely don't. We also don't have SAR for any manned aircraft we may fly in-country. We also don't have a QRF to take out smellies on the ground in any fast, meaningful way. So expect a few more drones strike to show our "over the horizon" capabilities. You know, to justify surrendering Bagram to the enemy. Oh yeah, I bet the Tolly Bon are scared too.

417 And this is gonna keep happening in NOLA.

Alongside the Bourbon Street area is a wall and from the top of that wall (there are steps up) you can see the Mississippi River and it's only a few feet from the top of that wall. Bourbon street is BELOW the level of the river. So it's going to always flood when a storm comes thru and pushes the gulf water up the river and rises 3-10 feet.

It's not a disaster. A disaster is something that no one thought would happen. The people know it's going to happen. They have done little to abate the danger or the outcome when it does.
This includes the Corps of Engineers, the mayor of NOLA, the Governor of LA and departments of the FedGov.

Cure: Move the city/raise the wall. This is the only two answers (well tear it all down but that's never going to happen.) I'm surprised you can get Insurance in the area. If you can that is. It's not a risk when you know it will happen. Then it's a cost of doing business.

I honestly don't think they are involved nearly to the level a country like China is with respect to our political system and culture.

It's a liberal fantasy that Putin/Russia just screw around with American politics all day, every day.

Yep, AFAIC they crossed a line where they can never redeem themselves. Great Britain can burn, for all I care. Never should've fucked around in a our elections. Ungrateful inbred buggerers with poor dentition.

I think the cynics are correct. Afghanistan was little more than a huge money laundering operation.

437 I feel so sorry for those who lost their loved ones there, and those who lost limbs.

And those who felt such despair after returning home that they took their own lives (two of son's war buddies among them).

438 Zerohedge is useful. Doesn't mean they're always right but frankly...aside from the obvious propaganda pieces he's more trustworthy and certainly more transparent than CNN.

If you've seen Fight Club, this won't surprise you but "Tyler Durden" is several people. At least one that doesn't much like Israel and one that does. Certainly another one that's friendlier to the Russians than anyone here. A couple variations on what they think the stock market's going to do though most seem to be "Stocks suck, gold Eleventy!"

441 Grew up in Nawlins. Fantastic town for a young person, crappy for raising a family. Left in 1995. When I'm back there for a meeting, I can't believe what a shithole it is, except for some parts of Uptown. And yeah, the streets are not maintained. To this day I instinctively scan the road ahead looking for potholes.

I doubt the european aristocracy is going to be silent about their NGO kids getting abandoned to be eaten by the Taliban.

443 Cure: Move the city/raise the wall. This is the only two answers (well tear it all down but that's never going to happen.) I'm surprised you can get Insurance in the area. If you can that is. It's not a risk when you know it will happen. Then it's a cost of doing business.

Well, you could raise the city. Drive steel cofferdams down a hundred-odd feet into the muck. Divide the city's substructure into square or hexagonal cells. Within each cell, drill wellbores down to a permeable sand layer, and pump mud down the wellbores. The land surface within each cell ought to rise like piston in a cylinder. Pump each one up ten feet above the highest recorded storm surge.

Cost would be astronomical.

444 > Cure: Move the city/raise the wall.

There's another solution, although one could argue it fits in the "move the city" category. Do what Seattle do and simply build up a level. Ground floor become basement and you raise the streets one building story.

Or just like Trump had a deep state in his Administration that most certainly did whatever they wanted.

I wouldn't necessarily say that means the PM was involved.

The British media insists that him and his party "covered" for trump.

446 "This Pentagon weasel just said, "There were no evacuees left at the airport when we left."

Total horseshit. We had people on the fucking phone watching us exfil and the planes leaving.

Technically, he's right. There weren't any evacuees at the airport.

They were all outside the front gate, unable to get in.
Posted by: reason at August 30, 2021 04:02 PM (ePZfA

Also, technically, they weren't evacuated so they're not evacuees.
Maybe they should ask him about "all those trying to escape"?
