The power is coming and going, though the news (the cable is coming & going too) says most of Baton Rouge is powerless.
They keep talking about New Orleans - terrifying reports coming in. High rise buildings have upper floor windows blowing out with wind and rain rushing in. The newly-planted palm trees down Canal Street are ripped out and being thrown around. Hundreds of people are calling in, stranded and stuck in their homes. Some rescue workers are having to tell them "we just can't get to you". Gods, why didn't everyone evacuate, or go to the Superdome?
Though I've heard the Superdome has substantial roof damage.
I have to leave the room when they're talking about New Orleans - and the surrounding areas. I keep starting to cry.
We're in a lull now - occasional gusts. As the storm continues to head North, it will get worse for us in Baton Rouge - but nothing like they're experiencing in the Southeast.
