It is really early to call it a one storm season and compare it that way when we are not even in September yet. Also the US had another devastating hurricane that year:  Iniki.

Hell yeah! Iniki! Love a good rare reference. You want to talk about a storm that was one of a kind that none of us will ever see again? There ya go.

And honestly, the “need help”tweet…you put yourself in that place, no one should go get him.

Why? They flew josh out of tacloban on a c-130. If some yahoo on a jet ski wants to save these kids I don’t mind.

That’s different. After the storm, fine. No one should risk getting these guys during the storm.

even adjusted for inflation that seems very unlikely although i'm sure the infrastructure at Port Fourchon is quite expensive.  one wonders how the area's infrastructure has been hardened since Katrina.

look, Katrina destroyed New Orleans, a major American city, and Ida simply isn't taking that kind of path.  we'll see though.

feeling substantially less confident about my original post

Haven't heard anything from my friend in Metairie.  I haven't been able to follow this much today but from what I can tell, although it's probably not going great there, the worst conditions are a bit west of there?

The airport is west of there(at least 5 miles) and they have been getting gusts recently up to 90 mph so probably not quite as bad there.

After the storm fine. Until then, if worst comes to worst, the marine life/and fauna will be stressed and need food sources too-think of the wildlife and the animals! Think of the shrimp!

Transmission tower has collapsed, power lines to city down in the Mississippi river.  I don't know if these are the very tall towers one can see from near the French Quarter crossing the river.

I think those are the TV/radio towers, most of New Orleans's TV stations have towers in Chalmette.

I'm talking electrical transmission towers, not broadcast towers.  I spent 2 weeks in a Holiday Inn in the French Quarter in 2000, I worked in New Iberia but was covering for an engineer going on vacation whose then died.  I worked in an office in the Shell building.  I was working for Halliburton then.  My last trip to NOLA was pre-Katrina with my wife for a casino/drinking long weekend.

Samaras was always very careful, if Discovery hadn't replaced the tornado chasing show for stupid shows about convicts and their boy/girlfriends outside and 90 day fiancees and gold miners, he'd have still had his truck, not some 90 horsepower little Chevy, and would be alive today

I spent a lot of time & had a lot of fun with friends who loved on the west side of the New Orleans metro -- Destrehan, Norco & LaPlace etc. My buddy from there now lives closer to Jacksonville, FL but he says he still has family that didn't/couldn't evacuate. I pray they are all OK.

People on Twitter are making him mad.  I suspect he gets a new account, assuming he lives, and I am assuming he does.
 

you’re not in the know.

this is a regular thing with him... make a dumb decision, get in a bad spot, yell at people and then beg for money in the end.

Isn't this guy the same guy who was arguing nonstop about radar attenuation during a hurricane last year and it took up pages of the storm discussion right before landfall because he apparently wasn't right or something? lol

Yes ;-)
