Hurricane Ida: New Orleans Faces Widespread Power Outages August 30, 2021August 30, 2021 61 comments Tagged with Joshua Johnson, The Week with Joshua Johnson LATEST BUZZ
Trump: “I also hear that a nuke will knock out a hurricane in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injecting a nuke inside the hurricane, almost like a cleaning? So it would be interesting to check that out.”
You do realize that idea isnt new dont you?
One of the most deadliest attacks in Afghanistan in 20yrs thanks to your Xiden president blood is on your hands & his ..
So, you even want to blame weather on Trump? What A complete a__hole.
This is all trump’s fault
@wholelottapain Biden’s, commie.
Does anyone remember when pat robertson said God is punishing Haiti when a earthquake hit there? Well pat, is God punishing Louisiana and Mississippi with this hurricane? Is he punishing, Alabama, Florida and texass with the surge in covid outbreaks?
@flex da cat Are you that much of a fool that all you see is any person that disagrees with you is automatically on the opposing team? You have a childs mind if thats your logic.
@Dori Tos Silence.
@flex da cat Poor baby
@Dori Tos Don’t start with me trumpie, don’t start. I don’t play well with seditious rats.
@Dori Tos Except 9 months later I’m not the one whining cupcake.

@Don_ECHOguy YEAH EXCEPT ONLY DEMOCRAT VOTERS LIKE BLM, WHO HATE TRUMP, ARE THE ONES DOING THE LOOTING.
@randal gibbons BRAINS ARE NOT COMMON IN YOUR FAMILY , ARE THEY?
@bearlytraincot YEAH BECAUSE A HURRICANE GIVES THE THE RIGHT TO ATTACK TRUMP , RIGHT?? YOUARE SPARE PARTS BUD.
@mike brigs NOBODY needs a reason, and EVERYBODY has the ‘right’ to express their opinion on whomever they like – ESPECIALLY the orange nutjob, in the context of performance comparisons, for example.
PS: words that are ALL in uppercase, should be reserved solely as a means of suggesting EMPHASIS on a particular word.
Writing ENTIRELY in uppercase is moronic & just appears as if you are shouting. Please stop.
@mike brigs I didn’t start the mud slinging buddy
Looking at some of the comments is hilarious! Now the tRump trolls are trying to make a HURRICANE political. It gets more insane every day!
The Radical left are already looting.
You guys are making it about covid and Trump 😂
I haven’t seen a single random pro Trump comment here it is all you guys talking about him and the gop on a weather video like the brainwashed lemmings you are
@B Alo I think people like him are trying to bait people.
Below sea level with no power for the pumps, not good.
for the past hundred plus years. the early suburbs were drained swamps that have been subsiding
Weather does not care whether the people in its path belong to a political party.
NEITHER DO I. BIDEN KILLED OUR 13 MILTARY PEOPLE.
@Dare SUCH AN IGNORANT COMMENT.
@Ral Deform UNLIKE YOU AND YOUR FAKE ACCOUNT RIGHT?? CLIMATE THIS BUDDY.
@mike brigs Even the Republicans and FOX, OANN and Newsmax say it was ISIS, so, climate that?
If you wanna talk fake accounts, no one would name their kid mike brigs, unless they wanted the kid to be a loser.
And in restaurants the Wuflu won’t get you as long as you remain unmasked & seated.
Infrastructure is everything
IT SURE WILL PAY OFF IGNORANT DO NOTHING DEMOCRATS LIKE NEWSOM AND WHITMER.
It’s also racist for some reason
The recent infrastructure Bill promises to spend 5cents/$dollar on actual infrastructure.
It amazes me that, in an area where the power lines come down with any large storm, they haven’t gone to using underground power – perhaps spend some of the infrastructure money on that.
Underground lines are not good for places that are prone to flooding. It’s expensive to repair underground power lines compared to above ground powerlines.
Mines are under ground and rarely go out but this storm was that bad, no where was safe.
Below sea level
Well I hate to say it but Republican run States don’t believe in Government being “for” the people. State governments like to sit on their perches and watch all the money float up to them. It’s like a mini socialistic state. So you gotta applaud them for spending a nickle.
Concrete poles are better for areas with high water tables, but yes they should have done upgrades
Weeks without Power!
How will I charge my phone? 🤯 😭😢
@macforme It’s stores power from being charged by solar or from being plugged in and works on a backup battery, too. I paid $50 bucks for mine. I also have a hand crank charger for extreme emergencies.
@thaipan katima Is that like the food banks?
@macforme Not during, but after. The weather is always gorgeous after a hurricane. :-/
@Mr. White OOOhhh you are right! I have one… I better find it before I NEED it. Came with a cranking radio too.
In your car
Thanks for covering the generators. I hope they get that grid system corrected.
Grid system? Texas was the State that isn’t connected to a shared grid. The other Southern States are connected and can share power.
@Laurie How do you share power when the lines are down?
@Dori Tos Was talking about the grid system when it is up and running. Texas had a problem this past winter with the polar freeze because it wasn’t on a shared system. If the lines can be connected, at least Louisiana can get power from other States while some of their stations are still trying to come back.
And please…..Don’t leave dogs tied up outside!!!
I hope they meet regularly with the Dutch Government. Discussing life on this kind of land ad infinitum must be ongoing, on both sides.
$15 billion dollars to keep New Orleans out of the water. With climate change rampaging on, this is a doomed city. Preserve the French Quarter and move everything else north. Repairing this city is a waste of diminishing resources.
the early suburbs were drained swamps that have been subsiding.
Bad decision a hundred years ago that has gotten worse
My prayers for the people .
Don’t mess with Mother Nature. Move out of Louisiana. History will repeat itself.
Im not from US, but my first reaktion is: why are powerlines still up in the air ?
Its not the first time hurricane hit US cost !
Underground power lines are prohibitively expensive in areas with high water tables and dont increase reliability because of it. Many areas have upgrades to concrete poles but it is a slow process that will take decades to complete
They were literally telling people to evacuate in the middle of the storm last night… and this morning they turned away the Cajun Navy… something isn’t right with that admin over there.
