Mom is in Old Gretna. She's too old to get out and survey damage but said "lots of things are down.". Power out since early Tues morn. Concerned for her and other seniors having to sweat this out. No flooding though.

Where at in Old Gretna is your mom? I'm near 4th/Lafayette. A little damage... one tree came down on a house... but really nothing too horrific. A lot of limbs, power lines, etc. Power here running at about 50%. Lots of LE/Fire/EMS presence if it's needed.

Thanks for the info
Senior center apartments located at St Joseph's. I think things are stable there except for not having power. Said she's having to go to a bldg at the school to recharge her phone. Some of her neighbors at the center are pretty old and fragile. Hope power gets restored there in a day or two.

I'm in Lakeview NOLA (Lakewood south) and had power all through the storm up until 2 hours ago. I think getting power to everyone else they had to take everything with power down to change a few poles.
