Report from the French Quarter

As of 11:30 AM Monday:

(from our friend Iray who manages the St. Bernard Parish Community Center)

I opted to hunker down in the French quarter 3 stories high , so far we are ok.  The eye passed 70 miles sw of us in all likelihood  the worst of the storm will be through by early afternoon, there likely will be areas in st Bernard and lower ninth ward that will flood. WE ARE FINE !!!

St Bernard and Lower Nine appear to have taken on water. I won’t really know much till the storm passes and we can re-enter the parish.

So far my cell phone is working, I am trying to keep the battery charged.
