New Orleans


New Orleans

There are no superlatives that can truly describe the devastation or ones reaction to it. With literally millions affected, the individual stories seem irrelevant. However perhaps that’s the only way we can begin to grasp how it affects us.

I spoke to Herb Anderson yesterday. He is a long time New Orleans resident, and currently the president of Imperial Parking. He said he was able to evacuate safely a day before the storm. He helped his parents, about an hour north of the city and then moved his family to relatives in Baton Rouge. He has no idea whether or not his house is safe, but has had positive reports about his neighborhood.

He has spent the past few days with a chain saw clearing roads north of the city so people can get in and out. "The big problem in this area is the trees down blocking the streets and homes. We are working in crews to clear the streets. We don’t expect to be able to get back into the city for at least a month, maybe more."

Herb and his family are among the lucky ones.
