Landrieu Press Conference: Isaac is Upon Us
Mayor Mitch spoke before the cameras for his last pre-hurricane presser: Isaac has arrived. Street closures, downed trees, and power outages are upon us, but Da' Mayor asks citiziens to be cautious and stay calm. Although Isaac is taking his sweet time, Landrieu believes the recovery phase will occur sooner than later. Read on for updates, and stay with NOLA Defender for your Isaac coverage.
7:04 "Isaac is with us." Reports of downed trees, heavy rains strong wnds, power outages throughout the city. Storm continues to move at a very slow place, which of course is not good news. Conditions could potentially be with us through Thursday morning.
"Knuckleheads" testing the temperature of the water on the lakefront. NOPD and NOFD removed them. Next time, they won't ask nicely.
Message: City is secure. We have the assets and personnel in place to secure the city. 68 boats, 57 vehciles, 1,000 National Guardsmen and Zodiac boats. 100 percent of officers on deck. NOFD and EMS at full strength. Wildlife and fisheries assisting us.
We're in the heart of this phase. We're in the hunker down phase. Plan for assessment and recovery as well. Next phase will be on us probably sooner rather than later.
Closed the Intracoastal Waterway. 17th Street Canal. Lakeshore Drive and West End Drive is inaccessible. Chef Menteur impassable. American Political Science Convention has cancelled for this weekend.
Serpas: NOPD is on task. Every single person who can work is working. Stay inside to help us protect your property and your life. 911 for life-threatening only. 311 for down trees and power outages.
NOFD Chief Parent: 29 engines, 10 ladder trucks, hazmat. When people do lose their power, please use the common sense safety measures that are out there. Candles, etc.
National Guard: Here as a supporting agency. Aviation, boats, high-water assets. Supporting the mayor and the City of New Orleans.
Letten appears at this presser: At no time are federal-state-local partnerships more evident than right now. They have to be seamless, and I think they are. All the people doing excellent job for public safety, rule of law and more.
US Marshall: Protect federal assets, support community. EMS will be available to respond as long as its safe to do so.
