Today in NOLA 9.12.17


Today, support our neighbors in Houston recover from Hurricane Harvey at a benefit concert at The Willow. The LGBT Community Center hosts a cocktail party. Gasa Gasa screens a film about LCD Soundsystem, while Burgundy Picture House kicks off their horror film series. On this day in 1839, Captain Salvatore Pizzati, an immigrant and leading importer of tropical fruit to New Orleans, was born in Palermo, Sicily. During his lifetime, he was one of the principal benefactors of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart and donated the iconic gate to City Park. Now, learn more about tonight's festivities.

Anxiety as Hurricane Harvey Arrives on Katrina's Anniversary



Sadly, we were sweating it out in New Orleans this past weekend on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, wondering if Hurricane Harvey would head east once it finished dumping its unfathomable deluge on southeastern Texas. But as we learned prior to Harvey’s hit on Texas, it wouldn’t take a storm of biblical proportions to turn New Orleans’ streets into a series of venetian waterways. All that’s required is one well-placed torrential downpour lingering over us, and parts of the city – if not the city itself – would be disabled.


Tropical Update: Hurricane Harvey Forms in Texas


The storms hovering over Texas for the last several days don't seem satisfied enough to stay in the Lone Star state. This week, city officials have been preparing New Orleans for impact from Hurricane Harvey, even though weather reports forecast that the Category 4 tropical storm will not hit New Orleans directly. Though evacuation is not advised, there is plenty that city dwellers can do to prepare for the heavy rains coming our way.
