My Takeaways From Yesterday:
First and foremost, my heart is broken for those in the lower 9th Ward and especially for those in Arabi. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are certainly with all of them and all of the first responders that were at Ground Zero.
Secondly, that could have easily have been my area had it gotten itself together much sooner than what it did, it could have been a much different outcome here. We did have some minor wind damage but counting our lucky stars but praying for those whose lives are forever changed.
Thirdly there were many people on the South Shore who quickly discounted the enhanced risk thinking that all the bad weather would be strictly confined within the moderate risk area and the fact we've been in several enhanced risks before and they busted. Yesterday's weather took many by surprise. I think Zach and the Fox 8 Weather Team did an excellent job relaying how bad things could get and they did get very bad here. I don't know why the majority of the people here didn't take it seriously. Then there were people bitching about their TV Shows being broke into with the warnings. I'm like HELLO, there's a major tornado on the ground and people's lives and property are about to be destroyed to hell with your TV SHOWS and stop cussing the Meteorologists! They were trying to save as many lives as they could! Grrrrrrrrrrr, some people can be so very retarded and self centered at times.
Fourthly, I am totally astounded as well as many of you are and totally scratching my head as this is the second EF-3 or possibly greater wedge tornado to hit around New Orleans in the last 5 years. We don't get those kinds of tornadoes here, especially one that has multi vortices. Then many years ago there was an EF-2 that hit portions of Westwego. Those kinds of tornadoes are practically unheard of on the South Shore and that's 3 in recent memory. Could this be a harbinger of future severe weather events, could tornado alley actually be shifting to now include the South Shore? This is just pure craziness.
Lastly I hope and pray that everyone in SELA takes future severe weather events no matter the risk level more seriously and not be as complacent and write it off so quickly. I pray this serves as a learning experience for at least some. I also want to thank Zach Fradella and the rest of our local Meteorologists for everything they do for us, especially for severe weather events and tropical weather events. You all are deeply treasured by me well beyond measure. You all are true heroes in my book. I'm also praying big time for those whose lives were forever changed by the violent weather yesterday and to all of the first responders that responded. My heart is certainly with them all.
son in law was laughing and making fun of me and my daughter about the tornado warning in Gretna because He was watching the 5:30 rebroadcast.
