Hogs Cancels Friday


Sustained showers have rained on the pork parade at City Park. Hog for the Cause announced that their annual pork fest will cancel Friday (4.01) festivities. Saturday (4.02) is still a go according to organizers.


Weather Alert


Storm’s a comin’! The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a slew of alerts and warning for South Louisiana for Tuesday (2.23) and Wednesday (2.24). The agency warns that severe storms, high winds, and even tornados could strike the region soon.


DC Mardi Gras a Geaux Despite Sneaux


Locals are not too happy about the cold front moving through southern Louisiana. However, this weekend, thousands of Louisiana are in Washington D.C. where the cold weather is proving quite a novelty. A record sized storm system is battering the nation’s capital, effectively shutting down the city and even impeding Obama’s motorcade. Still, (at least for the time being) Washington D.C. Mardi Gras is still on.

Weather for Weekend, Krewe du Vieux



Naming winter storms is all the rage these days! While New Orleanians would normally have lots to say about that, right now, most locals are focused on what “Jonas” means for us this weekend, specifically, what does it mean for Krewe du Vieux. The short answer is that the skies will be clear by the parade, but it won’t be warm.


Bad JuJu: Voodoo Cancels Sunday Shows


Despite two days of rituals, the weather gods unleashed their wrath on Voodoo Music + Art Experience today. Organizers announced that due to the stormy weather, the final day of the popular fest in City Park will be cancelled.


Spooky Storms: Halloween Weather Outlook


The skies are blue today, but come Halloween weekend, the weather may be giving revelers the blues. Forecasters are predicting a wet weekend with Halloween set to be storm central. The chances of thunderstorms on Saturday (10.31) night are close to 100 percent according to the National Weather Service (NWS).


Storm Stuff: Levee Was Dry


New Orleanians were busy cleaning up their courtyards after last night’s heavy storms. The Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority – West (SLFPA-W) also has a yard to tidy up, our levee system. The Authority announced measures following the wet weather today.


Erika Storms West


Meteorologists are cautiously optimistic that Tropical Storm Erika will not pose a threat to New Orleans. Instead, the National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting that the fifth named storm of the Atlantic season will hit Cuba before veering north through Florida.


K10: No White Flags


Many portions of the Recovery elicit controversy. When Gleason blocked an Atlanta punt in 2006, he earned a spot in locals' hearts. Then, the courage that the former Saint later displayed in the face of ALS coupled with his devotion to his adopted home moved the entire City. Ten years after the Federal Flood, Gleason has published an open letter about NOLA and Evacuteer.org.


"Low and Behold" Released on Digital


A decade after the Federal Flood, the City of New Orleans is awash in Katrina retrospectives. Disaster was followed by a surge of art in the Crescent City and the film “Low and Behold” was at the vanguard. Today, the movie was finally released digitally.
