Tuesday, August 30th

At 7a.m. a phone call woke me up. It was my mother, who asked if I'd heard the news. I rushed to my computer and opened the WWL TV page. One thing still running in New Orleans was WWL, broadcasting from their French Quarter studio and also from an emergency studio in Baton Rouge. They were broadcasting through the internet, and luckily Toby had DSL. No stream up, only an announcement stating that the 17th St. Canal had broken and the tidal surge threatened to flood the city. The dreaded "bowl effect" was going to happen after all. And our house in Mid-City was in the crosshairs.
