Floodwater and heavy wind can damage cemeteries, toppling headstones, flooding vaults, and dislodging caskets. Hurricane Katrina hit south Louisiana and Mississippi. We saw all of these images of flooded cemeteries, caskets that were displaced, just floating around Jennifer blanks as a PhD candidate at Texas a and M university. She studied cemetery management in historically black American cemeteries. She says cemeteries are personally meaningful for the descendants of those buried there, and they offer invaluable historical information. In some cases, about communities that were destroyed or abandoned during the racist depression of the Jim Crow era. Some are neglected and hard to access, broken and faded grave markers disappear in overgrown weeds. Planes is part of a movement to identify and document historic black cemeteries. Some experts warn this work is increasingly urgent, as more extreme weather threatens the sights, and the history they contain. Sometimes those cemeteries are the last remaining evidence that the community existed. So when you lose that cemetery, you lose a huge part of African American history and cultural identity.

"At stake here. After a natural disaster like this and we've seen this many times over the years, Hurricane Katrina, we all remember from 2005, had tremendous political consequences because people look to the political leadership. What did you do? Everything that went wrong attributable to mistakes made by government and public officials. So this is what President Biden at the national level and governor desantis in Florida are dealing with now and already there are a lot of questions being asked. One question for instance is was the evacuation in Lee county, Florida, done too late. So this is the kind of questions that are going to come up and it's a matter of holding officials accountable. And you know, it's understandable. People are hurting people are suffering and wondering what went wrong and could have been handled better. This is the political situation now that politicians are going to have to handle in the sense of who's accountable for this and was it handled properly. And do you think they're actually going to do any kind of appearances together once President Biden goes to Florida on Wednesday? I do. That's been an interesting dynamic here. Governor desantis has been very critical of the Biden administration. Of course, he's thought to be a possible presidential candidate in the next cycle. So he has backed off from that now in talking about we need harmony to work together to help people who are suffering from the hurricane. But so I do think they probably will appear together. It'll be awkward for both of them because they've been sort of tangling a lot, but they seem to have suspended the hostilities now for a while. I don't know how long that'll last. That's one thing we'll be looking at this week. But so far there, handing it in quite a harmonious way. And that's good for the people who are affected by this.

Lee County Sheriff Claims 'Hundreds of Deaths' Following Hurricane Ian

"Adjust some pretty some pretty terrible things that we are learning. Of course, they had the sheriff from Lee county, Florida. That's the Fort Myers area, and he was on Good Morning America, said that they believed there are hundreds of people who died and there are thousands of people who are stranded and they're waiting to be rescued. So there's just a lot of destruction and devastation in the Florida area, and we certainly want to hear from you. I know our good friend Mark from the villages will probably be calling him. We've been asking him to keep tabs on what's happening. Of course, I believe in the Orlando area. All you folks in the Carolinas, Georgia, you are in the crosshairs as well. Certainly, the storm not as powerful, but still, you know, you just can't take chances in this kind of stuff. I mean, this is a pretty serious situation. And I will say this, that one of the challenges we faced am if in fact, if, in fact, the death toll is that high, it would be one of the deadliest storms since Hurricane Katrina.

"Of people that are actually in their attics trying to get out and the only way through an attic is going to be right on through it all the way up to the top of your house. That's something we saw so much of back in Hurricane Katrina, all the way back in 2005. Ian was already a monster storm before it came ashore. Then it rapidly intensified right before it did. Why did that happen? Yeah, we saw what's called an eyewall replacement cycle. And when that happens, you get a newly formed eye, the storm does not develop as far as strengthening. It doesn't strengthen during that time. But once you have a new eye formed, that new eye can then take the storm to a new level, and that's exactly what happened. It moved over very warm waters. You had the air aloft that was very helpful in helping the storm to generate even more power. So it went from a category 330 mile an hour storm or a 125 mile an hour storm to a 155 mile an hour storm right before landfall, the strongest winds that I've seen with this so far have been about a 140. So I haven't seen anything over a 150 just yet, but again, a 140 mile an hour winds. That'll do some damage. Incredible. You were very concerned about storm surge. Could this storm dug be historic in terms of the storm surges and their devastating effects on several parts of Florida? Oh, absolutely. I mean, we've seen record storm surge in Key West. We saw record storm surge in Naples from this. We've seen record storm surge in Fort Myers and it's not done yet. I mean, the storm still has onshore flow south of the Sarasota area. So you're going to see storm surge all along that part of the coast. And that's going to go on not only for the rest of the night, but right on into the date, so you're talking about numerous high tide cycles seeing tremendous amounts of water Tampa has had actually blow out tide. So the water has actually gone out instead of in as far as Tampa Bay is concerned, but that's going to be different once the storm gets to the north. You'll start to see westerly winds and Tampa. We'll see some storm storage. It will not be nearly as bad as what they're dealing with down to the south. But even around Tampa, they were still expecting a couple of feet. And then you go out toward the east in areas like Jacksonville, once the storm exits into the Atlantic, Jacksonville could see four to 6 feet of storm surge, and that is going to pose a lot of problems on the east coast. And this storm could actually intensify possibly even into a hurricane again and make its way in towards parts of south and North Carolina. By the end of this week, before heading our way with The Rain. Obviously, we want to talk about our region, Virginia, Maryland, D.C., what could we be looking at? Yeah, I really think our area is going to see rain and some wind. It's not going to be bad. I'm not anticipating a strong storm here. Rain upwards of one to two inches, but that's over a three to four day period, so that would not give us much in the way of flooding, so I'm not too worried about that as of right now. I'm not too worried about the wind. The peak wins, maybe up to 30, 35 miles an hour, maybe a little bit higher up along the Chesapeake Bay. That coming in Saturday into the day on Sunday. I always like Norfolk and Virginia Beach, however, over towards ocean city could see tropical storm force winds and a lot more in the way of rainfall upwards of two to 5 inches of rain down into those regions. Now that's what the latest track, as I mentioned, we're waiting to see what's going on now because this storm still has a long way to go before it makes its way our way.

"This is insane. It's making really hard for me to root for you. And then you realize, oh, he's a monster. I'm not supposed to root for him. He's a terrible, terrible, terrible person with this awful, dark beast inside him. Then the next leap as a viewer is, oh, the point of this show is it's a cautionary tale. We all have monsters inside us, and if we get too good at justifying the bad things that we do, the monster will come out and we'll ruin people's lives. We won't probably murder as many people as Walter white did. But it'll be bad. And so those decisions, the plot level decisions require a tremendous amount of artistry, but they don't really become affecting or matter unless there's like an interesting emotional or psychological story that's sort of underpinning it. In your book, how to be perfect. You tell a story about an event that happened a 1 mph car accident. And I wanted to bring it up because it sounded like from your description of it that that was one of the key events that led both to you thinking about ethics and moral philosophy, which led to the good place. And to writing the book, how to be perfect. So tell us the story. So 2005, my wife was in a small, very, very slow fender bender. Police officer doesn't see any damage. They exchange numbers.

You know, a lot of Americans who weren't affected may have forgotten just how horrible that was. I mean, you asked, I can't even get passed. Just how many alligators were in the streets and some people's homes once the floods began. You know, we had a storm in Long Island. A hurricane called sandy that was a matter of fact, sandy's winds were stronger than Katrina's. Sandy's landfall was worse than Katrina, but there were no floods involved like Katrina. We didn't have Lake pontchartrain empty onto Long Island. So the storm was worse, but we did have some of the bay water come into people's homes. And we experienced bait fish in our living room. Bait fish and on garage and basements. Once the canals opened were all the float. But you can't, I mean, bay fish versus a fucking alligator in your living room? No, I can't.

The Most Convincing, Rational Case AGAINST Intervention in Ukraine

"So the same government who let all the 9 11 terrorists in. Did nothing to prevent the 2008 financial crisis, messed up our response to Hurricane Katrina. They can't build an ObamaCare website. They gave billions of dollars attacks benefits to dead people. They spent billions of dollars of checks to the social security administration to dead people. They wrongly locked down our country, they pushed a faulty vaccine on our population, they droned a random family in Afghanistan, they lied about the invasion of Iraq, these are the people that are now saying they're going to bring resolution to what's happening in Ukraine. The very same people that screwed up the Afghanistan withdrawal are now saying that everything's going to be perfect in Ukraine. If you guys loved what happened in Afghanistan, you guys are going to be thrilled with what happened is going to happen in Ukraine. Same sort of people. We gave $85 billion of weapons to the Taliban. When we give money to foreign countries, we can't track that money. Quote, the $13.6 billion emergency package for Ukraine includes money for humanitarian aid defense assistance and economic support for the region. Lawmakers more than doubled the amount of money in the package over the past several weeks as the severity of the fighting and the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine grew. The money is divided between what lawmakers term lethal and humanitarian aid. The humanitarian section includes $4 billion for displaced people within Ukraine. And the estimated 2 million people who have fled the country since the war began two weeks ago. More than $2.5 billion will go to the U.S. agency of international development for food and healthcare support. Another $1.4 billion is intended for migration and refugee assistance. The defense or lethal aid section is $3 billion to support U.S. Military's European command aid to quote use for operation mission support, deployment of personnel to the region and intelligence support. Another $650 million will go to grants or aids or loans to the Department of Defense. So if you guys love Mark milley, he just got a lot more powerful. The Mark milley who's teaching CRT, who said that white terrorism is the biggest threat to America. That's who gets more powerful when you want to get involved

"You know, I kind of want to, I'd love to now spend another hour hearing what your people, your community, what you are learning, because really Hurricane Katrina was kind of on the front edge. Yes. That we're all on. And we don't have time to hear all about that. But I think the question I'd like to ask you, and I ask it for Minnesota but I ask it for people who would be listening anywhere. What have you learned about how we can accompany each other? Um. I think I've learned that even people who are who see the world differently from you, they love something. And if we take the time to share what we love with one another, we can see each other's humanity. And we can feel each other's value. And if we can connect in a real way, that's what we need to accompany each other because some of what is going to be asked is that you just let me be. You know, as relocation and all of this stuff happens. Some people are going to choose something other than what you would choose. And to accompany them is to just understand what they love. And respect it. So I think, you know, let's take the time to connect through love and stick with each other as we practice our own liberation, our own liberated stance on this thing, which will not always be the answer we want to hear, but it'll be someone practicing freedom. And that's the part we have to respect. If I ask you, does a big question, but just today, just write this hour. What is making you despair, and what is bringing you hope. What is giving you hope? I feel sadness around. The inability to value the feminine and the power of it. And acknowledge that it is the other half of this circle. And if we do not respect it through women, but also through a Carey economy and through taking care of each other. And these things that we have learned to devalue because we've put this masculine thing on high. I feel sadness that we still don't we still don't see it. Even the feminist movement has something to learn about respecting the feminine, you know. So I feel sadness about that. Because I'm not sure I thought race was the biggest problem. And then I'm just watching this gender thing. And it's really sad. But I get hope, you know, I have been listening to some music. I love listening to music and I've been listening to some of the what's coming out of the next generation and I have my critiques. I'm officially like an old lady and I'm like. But I was riding listening to this song the other day and I had a 19 year old with me named Tyler, and I said, I said, oh, check out this song I found. We turned it up. There was a beautiful sunrise over at a sunset over punch a train, and it was just this beautiful music. And sounds I hadn't heard put together before. And I said, you know, I got a lot of critiques about this generation, whatever y'all are. But y'all are very creative. You have a, you have a freedom with your creativity that can be beautiful. And so we're going to need that level of creativity to get out of this thing. And I am hopeful that the next generation that has a lot of challenges. Also has enough creativity to get out of it, to get to the next level. And will accompany them too. We'll be right there with them. Call that, I'm just really glad you're in the world and that you're a comrade and all this work that we all have had. So thank you so much for coming here and for doing what you do. Thank you. And I can't tell you how glad I am. When I had to leave my religious practice, I had your show on Sundays to listen to. Thank you. Thank you. Yeah. Thank you. Thank you..

Border Crisis Sparks Calls for Change in Immigration Policy

"June twenty first two thousand nineteen jv pritzker signs measure to help protect illegal immigrants in illinois governor jv pritzker in june of two dozen nineteen signed three bills designed to protect illegal immigrants in illinois that would prohibit law enforcement agencies from coordinating with federal immigration authorities. Pritzker sign the keeping illinois families together. Act which prohibits local law enforcement from coordinating with immigration customs enforcement. Now this was two years ago. Why am i mentioning this. Because you have blue states by the way this is one of thirty examples of blue states that have been signing laws that prohibit police officers and local sheriffs in da's from coordinating with federal officials. That's an act of secession. That's an act of nullification saying we don't want any part of this. Federal compact and we as republicans and conservatives sat idly by like. Oh yeah that's bad. Let's keep going to the courts they've been ignoring the courts and ignoring the laws for years. And so then when one point eight million illegals come into the country to change the country permanently by the way what do we do. We beg joe biden for help. So what are the democrats do when things start to trend in a direction. They don't like they take action. The democrats have the willingness to reshape. Destroy the country. Republicans are getting there now. Some people emailed us and they said well. Charlie couldn't joe biden nationalize the national guard. It is very rare to do so usually only done with the consent of the governor and prayer pet presidents have rarely federalized a state or territory guard without the consent of the governor in the wake of hurricane katrina president. George w bush declined to take control of the louisiana's national guard due to the objection of governor kathleen blanco. But this is such an easy thing. First of all joe biden can't nationalize state troopers. Secondly he can't nationalize texas rangers. Thirdly the governor of texas would say i'm sorry what did you design a piece of paper. There's still our national guard. They're not gonna listen to you federalized nationalize i mean federalize. And so what should have been done. And what's still can be done. Is every single.

It was stressful but freeman brown. Had a job to do. She says we're no match for nature. But this is what we've trained for. This is what the resilience core was built for like. Firefighters put out fires and waste collectors. Keep the city. Clean the job of the new orleans. Resilience core is to help the city be resilient to shocks. Crises and climate change launched by the city and october twenty twenty as a pilot to run for two years. The cores forty workers were mainly people who lost jobs in the hospitality industry during the pandemic. Who are now on full time contracts starting at twelve dollars an hour with a path to an eighteen dollar an hour wage freeman brown joined after losing her work as a corporate massage therapist at an insurance company. The core spent much of the last year working to support the city through kovic nineteen and get people vaccinated hurricane. Ida is the first climate disaster that the core has confronted though the sophisticated system of levees pumps and flood barriers. Built in the wake of katrina protected the city from water damage the storms high winds battered the city killing thirteen people there and toppling thousands of power lines and hundreds of substations. The lights remained off across most of new orleans for a week with at least ten percent of electric customers still without power nine days later.

"We are artists entrepreneurs parents homeowners and so much more when it came to healing the open wounds and trauma that katrina caused. We didn't receive much support from the federal government or anyone for that matter instead. We are working to heal ourselves while also trying to bring back the place that we love so much. This process was interrupted. On the sixteenth anniversary of hurricane katrina when another category four hurricane made its presence known in the gulf. This storm tore through louisiana once again leaving. Some areas emerged in water and most of the state without power for possibly weeks from the physical damage to the neglect and slow response of the federal government. This is all too familiar to what we experienced in. Two thousand five. As i write this. There are people who are suffering from severe heat temperatures with no electricity lack of food and water and barely any support or help. Everyone loves louisiana especially new orleans for our culture food and spirit. People speak highly of our resilience and strength but as a native. Let me just say that. We are tired of being resilient and strong at this moment we are asking the world to give their resources time and attention to the thousands of black and brown people who are on the verge of being neglected during their lowest point again. I started filming my documentary katrina babies time studios is co producing buckles upcoming documentary about seven years ago after i began to recognize my own trauma as well as the trauma of my peers. I was fed up with our feelings being ignored. So i worked on telling our stories in this documentary with the hope of inspiring the rest of the world to learn about the lack of response in two thousand five and prevent it from happening again as i watched the slow response to hurricane ida. I am feeling. Ptsd from my childhood. I will ache if another generation of children has to experience the trauma and neglect that my peers and i experienced in our childhood. I am encouraging the rest of the world to not look away from what is happening in louisiana just because the news cameras are gone. Help the place that gives you so much joy in.

"You have much less flooding you're able to start the reconnaissance process much more quickly otherwise you need to wait days for the flood waters to recede before you can even really assess energy and other utilities will go out in van boats and things to start scouting early but obviously you're not going to restore electricity flow in a ton of water. Like i think that's very clearly not gonna work all these things. The infrastructure improvements contribute to helping the grid get slipped back on quicker. I would also note though that there are suburbs of new orleans and low lying stranding areas where those projects are still planned but haven't been completed yet because it was such a massive effort since hurricane katrina to fundamentally you know re work the flood protections so there are actually suburbs currently in new orleans where there was massive flooding and they are still needing to go through that old process of waiting for the waters to go down scouting and boats in the meantime so certainly even though the success of those measures was heartening. And you know a huge relief. The process is not done for sure. No lily you said in your story that there are some new power plants. I think two new power plants in new orleans That were designed to be somewhat hurricane. Proof What happened to those during the storm. Yeah so energy has been sort of in conjunction with state of louisiana bringing on line. You know these two new power stations which natural gas they're billed as being more efficient than other energy older energy natural gas power plants and they're meant to be cleaner greener at you know. At least that's the pitch about them. The goal with natural gas. It's very abundant in the area. It's kind of easier to keep on line during disasters. So that's the idea behind. Okay it's it's hurricane proof because you know it runs on natural gas except as you point out like many of the power plants in the area those plans are either down or partly down and so it really indicates that they're still.

I'm barb and this is frank this week as we're recording this hurricane ida is maybe an hour or two away from making landfall all the latest news item that i read said it may be one mile per hour. Short of a hurricane five So hopefully in a couple of weeks. We'll revisit this topic but all of our thoughts and prayers. They say our concerns and hopes go out to the people of louisiana mississippi. That are gonna get hit by something pretty nasty well. And don't forget the the folks up in west virginia because doing that way. So that Raid so so yeah Dangerous situation on an unfortunate anniversary of hurricane katrina you almost sixteen years to the day for hurricane katrina so and here's an interesting thing. Here's a question. i have That we can talk about the later time but it's weird. I'm getting conflicting news reports. Hurricane katrina what category storm was it because for example if you go to wikipedia which is not the arbitrary of all information obviously but they listed as a category five but a lot of news reports. Say it's a category three which is significantly different so it had to do with so it was cat five out in the gulf but i believe it weakened as it came onshore but three is weight was when the i hit the shore. So yes and that's that's an interesting thing about what we're noticing on her a number for canes right is that sudden rapid intensification is it near shore making a little bit difficult to predict what the onshore conditions are going to be. So you see that with a few of them. In recent years so going into the news. I ran across a news item today or this week. I should say there was today That greek scientists are now suggesting much like hurricane names giving heatwaves their own name Which you know this is a bit. I think along the lines of when we gave When i who's been doing this but mcgivering snowstorms our names weather channel by the way the weather channel. We say the weather channel. I believe but with these. Greek scientists are suggesting is that heat waves are in fact in many ways every bit deadly as something like a hurricane or That we are giving a name to and the idea being that if we give it a name we give it an identity and the understanding that this is a significant event that has widespread impacts and and can literally kill people I don't know how i feel about giving the names aren't giving it a name helps or not But it's just interesting. I'm against feel good point right because there are some who say it does give. But i think that let's go into the semiotics of it. I don't disagree that giving it another identifier does give a give meaning to people symbolic of it is important and in an age when a lot of people have access to information making sure they can see a hierarchical hierarchical differentiation between types of information. Make sense so in that. I don't disagree. But i.

"One of the most powerful storms to ever hit the. Us made landfall over the weekend. Hurricane ida directly hit port fouchane louisiana with one hundred and fifty mile an hour winds flooding rain in life threatening storm surges. That were more than seven feet above normal. The storm ripped the roofs off homes businesses and at least one hospital it snapped trees and power lines flooded streets and left more than a million electricity customers in the dark. In fact the entire city of new orleans lost power the winds were so strong they reverse the flow of the mississippi river near new orleans something the us geological survey calls extremely uncommon only four stronger storms in history of ever hit the mainland.

Watches have also been issued for parts of louisiana mississippi alabama and florida. For a lot of people this is all too familiar ida hit on the exact same date as historically devastating hurricane katrina sixteen years ago. I came ashore about forty five miles west of where katrina first struck land but the area was more prepared. This time since katrina hit newer stronger more sophisticated levees were built to hold back storms. Like this and it seems they've been able to hold up this time much better than the ones that failed following katrina more than eighteen. Hundred people died after katrina. This time. it's too early to know what the human toll may be. Hundreds of thousands of people evacuated ahead of hurricane ida but not everyone got out so there are twenty one search and rescue teams from about fifteen different states ready to find survivors as soon as the storm calms down the federal emergency management agency or fema also sending more than two thousand emergency workers hundreds of extra ambulances and millions of meals and leaders of water.
