"The power company in New Orleans said today that power has been turned back on for about 80% of the almost one million customers who lost it in a hurricane Ida, which is great, but it also means If you look at it another way that the lights are still off in a good chunk of the homes in Louisiana Co brag is a journalist. She is based in New Orleans, and she talked on this program last year about buying a house in New Orleans for our series adventures in housing. Have a lovely, like classic New Orleans front porch that I love too. Just, like stand out on and, you know, wave at my neighbors. So, David everything that has happened in New Orleans the past couple of weeks. We got her on the phone. So it's good to have you back on. Yeah. Nice to nice to be here. How? First of all, I guess. How are you? And how is that house that you told us so much about? Sure. So I'm doing okay. I'm happy to know that the power came back on earlier this week had been out for just about a week's time after Ida. Um so I had an opportunity to go back and see my house. Um, a few days after the storm. You know, I wanted to go back and get some friends who didn't have cars out of the city because it was just way too hot. And there's a tree on my roof like there's a tree. That's um on your through your roof on the roof. I can't quite see you until you get that tree off. But you know, like It could have been so much worse and is for so many people, especially outside of New Orleans. This is a house. We should remind people that you bought sight unseen, right? Click through some pictures on the Internet. But I imagine really quickly this house became kind of a part of you. Yeah, I mean, especially a house purchased in the pandemic and you know, I work from home. And it was hard to leave. Honestly, it's hard to evacuate. It's hard to do that kind of. Should I stay or should I go? Because you want to be there, you know, to catch leaks or To make sure your house is okay. So I know that that is a reason Why so many people stay. What's it like for you and your friends and your family and people who you evacuated with or met when you left? Um what's it like? For all y'all to see the national attention shift to All the flooding in New York and that sort of East Coast. Um Uh, focus that a lot of the coverage has had since almost the day after Ida hit New Orleans. Sure, I think that the culture of being in Southeast Louisiana place where the Coast has been eroding for years, in part due to the, um big fossil fuel industry, Um you know, thousands of miles of Louisiana Coast That's supposed to protect us from Storm damage, and all of that stuff is gone. Um, And so there's a culture of preparedness and also of knowing that people are not coming to save us and that there's a deep community care infrastructure. That exists in this region. That frankly, the rest of the country has a lot to learn from. Would you like to even hazard a guess as to how long it's going to be before your neighborhood is back to normal. Yeah, I think that that part is going to be hard because I think when I went back to check on my house, I was just giving out water to people that are who have stayed, But also it's extremely expensive to evacuate. You know, I sent some money. To a new mom who had left with her newborn and she was like, I don't have to pay for hotels on my way back from Georgia, but I just don't have that kind of cash on hand. And so think about that It's going to take a while for people to come back. And also once you get back, that's when you really have the wherewithal to deal with them. I gonna Apply for FEMA aid. What does that even look like? How long is it going to take? Because if you look just over to the western corner of our state Lake Charles, which got hit with Hurricane Laura last year, there's people still waiting. In houses covered with blue tarp for that FEMA aid and other government aid to come in All right. So here's the $64,000 question, Would you? Um, Would you buy that house again? Absolutely would buy the house again. And I have a friend who's born and raised in New Orleans and the way she put she also a new homeowner, and the way she put it is that even if New Orleans one day is completely underwater, she'll be proud to own a little piece of land in the ocean, And I think that's how a lot of people feel. It's a very proud Area. It's that Care infrastructure that I can't stress enough That makes you want to stay. And it's also why we wanted to rush back to help people that are really in need and really love their neighbors. Co brag is a reporter editor. Journalists also homeowner in the city of New Orleans. Go Thanks A lot of really appreciate your time. And your thoughts. Yeah. Thanks for having me. Coming up. People desensitize themselves to.

"News. I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Ailsa Chang. Students in Louisiana started this school year almost fully in person. But a week and a half after Hurricane Ida tore through the state more than 250,000 K through 12 students are now waiting for a classrooms to reopen. Many are set to return in the coming week, but some students could face a month or more of school closures. Aubrey US of member station W. W N O has been following the situation from New Orleans and joins us now. Hey, Aubrey. Hey, Elsa. Hey. So do you have a sense of where things stand now? Like, when will all these kids be able to get back into classrooms? You think? Yeah, well, I'll start with the good news. New Orleans school buildings are mostly okay, and some students could return to classrooms as early as next week. The city is trying to reopen school buildings as quickly as possible, not because they're necessarily worried about students falling behind, but because they know schools might be the safest place for them to be. Some neighborhoods here are still without power in schools may be the only place that families can access air conditioning, charge their phones and get food. But even though school buildings are getting ready to reopen, there's still a pretty rough road ahead in New Orleans. In the past, we've seen Covid get worse following a storm because of the increased number of close contacts people have when they evacuate or gather relief shelters locally to try to get ahead of this problem. The district is asking families to get their kids tested before sending them back to school. But tests are really hard to come by right now because everything was shut down due to the storm. Okay. You said you were starting with the good news. What's the bad news here? Yeah, well, the bad news is that of all the districts that are experiencing longer term closures. Right now, New Orleans is actually the only one that's announced a reopening timeline even nearby Jefferson Parish, the state's largest public school district. It's in far worse shape and it has you know yet to set a date to reopen. Its superintendent said yesterday that some schools may need to be bulldozed to the ground to the level of destruction. Some parishes along the Mississippi River and on the Gulf Coast. Don't expect to get power back until at least the end of September. Then they'll still have to deal with significant storm damage to buildings. That means more than 45,000. Students probably won't get back into classrooms until sometime in October. I spoke with Susan Adams, a high school English teacher in Terrebonne Parish on the Gulf Coast. Her school suffered a lot of damage from the storm. We all knew that there was definitely the water in the school, but the extent of the water into school is kind of mind blowing. She says. The walls and floors are slick with mud. The windows are blown out in pieces of the roof are strewn everywhere. She's taught there for 20 years, and she's completely heartbroken. She's also really worried about our students. You know what I mean? My students stayed and lived through the storm, but they were here. They didn't evacuate. I think quite a few, and I think quite a few lost quite everything that they heard. We're going to have to, like. Love those kids. Hard when we go back. Yeah. I mean, if there's mud in the school building and windows are blown out. I don't get it. How are these students and teachers going to be able to return? Yeah, I mean, it's it's a really hard road ahead. And the big question is there is not a clear timeline. There's no quick fixes. I called up Carl Brook House. He's a superintendent of Calcasieu Parish public schools because he was in the exact same situation a year ago after Hurricane Laura hit his part of the state. His district still hasn't been able to fully repair the hurricane damage to school buildings. But he says teachers and students are moving ahead with school as best they can. They're going to school with concrete floors and no tile on the floor. They're going to school with roof leaks. When it rains. They're accepting all of that. And frankly, We're having a pretty good instructional year absent of the Covid issue, of course, which you know, is a daily debacle. His message to school leaders who have been hit hard by IDA and to be been hit hard by Covid is to, you know, to focus on the students and not let the storm derail their education. That is Aubrey. US from W W N O.

"Coast around midday yesterday ida was a cat. Four hurricane with sustained winds topping one hundred and fifty miles per hour or one of the largest and strongest hurricanes to ever hit the mainland united states. What are the top five. Since dawn broke this morning louisiana has been coming to grips with just how much item left in. Its wake particularly along the coast around the great american city of new orleans louisiana today north west of new orleans overnight. Some residents were trapped by rising floodwaters. There people retreated they're addicts calling for help but the winds were too strong for any rescue efforts overnight until early this morning. You could see why it was so dangerous to send out rescue crews last night from this quite scary footage of people being rescued from a flooded highway in new orleans in the middle of the storm last night there have been two confirmed deaths from the storm. One of them was a man who drowned when his vehicle tried to go through floodwaters on this same highway once daylight came. Today you can see here. Search and rescue teams finally reaching lapus. All those people had their homes filled with water. All these people were trapped in their addicts trying to get away from the rising waters. Louisiana's governor said tonight that the national guard rescued one hundred ninety one people also twenty-seven pets. It's not clear how many more people may still need rescuing right now as we speak. Today's operations have largely been responding to all the nine one one calls that couldn't be answered last night. Nine one one systems were down in multiple locations for much of the night and the day today including for a long time in new orleans. The governor of louisiana says teams will do a grid search and the hardest hit areas. They'll go street by street blocked by block and then they'll do a secondary search to make sure they didn't miss any one in the first one. Meanwhile the state is bracing for the knock on effects of the biggest problem facing southeastern louisiana in the wake of ida the lack of electric power. This is a collapsed transmission tower in new orleans today. The power company energy says all eight of the transmission lines that come into the city of new orleans were knocked out by the storm. There's distribution lines within the city. The big towers the big transmission lines that bring high-voltage into the city there's eight of those coming into new orleans all eight knocked out over a million homes and businesses are without power in louisiana including the whole city of new orleans. Energy says it'll take days just to determine the extent of the damage and far longer to restore electricity. That means most people will be without for example air conditioning as heat index tops. One hundred degrees over coming days officials are warning about the danger of carbon monoxide poisoning from people using portable generators inside inside a home or a garage. That's actually what caused most of the deaths in louisiana from hurricane laura last year so they are urgently trying to get that word out about the use of portable generators. Were keeping an eye on in louisiana. Is the hospitals as you know from recent reporting including here on this show louisiana's hospitals are already full to bursting with very sick patients. You might remember a video. We played on the show a few weeks ago. Navy medical team uniform active duty navy medical team arriving at one hospital in louisiana to help relieve the overwhelmed doctors and staff there that navy team who played this footage. Markle.

"Time right now and i wish he's governors would just stop putting their own occurs ahead of themselves and and and looked to public safety. I think somebody made made the point on your show or wherever but i think to a large degree that That if you are if you are largely giving false advice like we're starting to see these medical licensing boards state boards of starting to pull licenses away from physicians who are out there making false statements. And i wish that there was an equivalent for There was an equivalence of for governors for politicians is one of course it's called the voters but then of course anytime the election comes around so much money gets thrown into their the day full their voters of but there is political malpractice. That is being That's the practice right now. A by politicians. And i i had a reporter once asked me. What can we do what you do to stop the misinformation. And i said back to him. I do your the press. This is your job right. you're the constitution. You're the only a professional names the constitution. It's your jaw of the old powerful at check. I'm just one small voice you have a platform and then we ended. He said if you to wave a magic wand what would you do. I said you know what you do. Every night have four or five physicians. Three hour many wants to put him on ten minutes a day with the topless. A ten o'clock every night you didn't feed us all of the misinformation That was fed that day by politicians or insatiable. And just give us a half hour to unpack each one of them into that. We can explain how that works in. You don't have that platform and misinformation Is A circulates six times faster than the nation does. Because it's all clip david. Sex seat knows things that people are going to want. Click on whereas a scientific papers scientific papers dry. It's not meant to be exciting and so we are subject misinformation in that misinformation not questioned without question driving. What we're seeing right now well Mark land derek. Thank you so much for your time. That i'd like to catch up with you. We can talk Maybe in the you know when you're on the other side of this Crisis talk a little. Bit about the vaccine advocacy waning and perhaps and Other issues that that that like to address but a really appreciate your taking the time and no. It's you're under a tremendous amount of duress and stress right now anti salmon. Emma thank you so much. I appreciate is how much all right folks. We're gonna take a quick break and we'll be back With a couple of more stuff before we wrap things up Do locally a we're back. Let's look at the. The doctor had And mentioned the problems in Louisiana in terms of evacuating patients. They had enough time to be aware of potential of of ida coming but the problem is they didn't have enough time to go far enough to where you could evacuate these patients because places like florida texas surrounding states are being hit so hard with covert right now that there are simply not the either the beds and what dairy senate about the nurses. This is the thing that i think. People don't fully appreciate in terms of you know the human the human power behind treating all of these covert patients have been the immense exhaustion. Oh but don't worry. We clap outside of our windows. And but but the point is like people just think capacity when when when you hear the shorthand. There's only so many beds in the icu. The issue is not literally just the best. It's the manpower who get right up mattresses and you could find a gymnasium. The problem is is that nurses are trained. Medical equipment exists. We joke about this. But north dakota was really playing on that difference. They were saying we have these beds available but they weren't actually staffed. Well that's the thing is that. And i don't know i i can't tell if people are ignorant about this or willfully agreed but it is not just it's not like it's not like well. We were at a hotel and we can find the beds. We're just going to cut back a little bit on the service. There's not going to be any room service tonight. No that's not what happens in a In treating people on the pillow exactly but like the thing is. I also think that people just don't want to think about hospitals until they have to think about them. No one wants to think about the men. Like the blood and sweat that goes into treating this kind of deadly disease and and we also have a situation in this country where we have massive hospital conglomerates who are trying to squeeze every dollar profit they can out of it. We have cutbacks on public hospitals. They want no slack and so instead of having proper staffs for hospitals as is they always under staffed by ten fifteen percent because that's their profit margin you see it with the nurses and saint. Vincent's up in in worcester. But you see it all across the country and no slack in the system in fact the opposite of no slack. I should say the opposite of slack. There's always going to be a slight. We always going to run this. You know With with at one hundred percent capacity with ninety five percent of what we need or ninety two percent of what we need. And that's where profit comes from. And why do you know. It falls on the backs of the workers. Indy here is a john. Bel edwards on cnn. Sunday talking about that dynamic about. There's nowhere for us to evacuate these people from two. We had four hurricanes last year during code but we had a small fraction of the number of people in our hospitals that we currently have. We have more people in the hospital today. Twenty four hundred fifty with kobe than we had a any point of before this current surge. In when hurricane laura hit lash wheel had about three hundred hospitals so evacuating hospitals is not gonna be possible Because there's nowhere to bring those patients to there's no excess capacity anywhere else in the state or outside the steak and so we're really worried about prolonged power outages.

"Things up in earnest when you get into august through early october. So i think we're seeing what would be typical and i think we're just coming off such a hyperactive season. It just felt weird not to have somebody storms in july. Because it's been so busy for so many years so the the big message is here. We're coming into the peak. And i think you know we start getting through august and getting the september. We've the peak yet to come for the hurricane season for know twenty one so that's why preparedness is everything and getting ready for it and you mentioned elsa an interesting point. There was a lot of social media about hurricane versus a tropical storm. And you know we had some radar data in the aircraft found those winds. It didn't last long so much on it. And i hope everybody can help us. Spread the word on this. The difference between a tropical storm in a hurricane one mile an hour And again we're standard of science but at the same time it's interesting how the word hurricane Really prop so much attention versus tropical storm. There is no such thing as just a tropical storm. And you and i talked about the war would meet illogic organization. I have a lot to do with as chair. That committee You know th they'll never be named justa. We'll never have a hurricane. Just will never have probably just a picture of that. But the point is it's about the impacts and is so important hurricane tropical storm trump alison. I mean i think of i. I look at history. Tropical storm produces ten foot storm. Surge and fifteen twenty inches of rain. I don't care what the name is. That's a big impact. And you gotta be ready for that i. I'm so glad you mentioned that because it right. I mean strong tropical storm. We can't one the impact the same. And so i'm and that was definitely a message. I was trying to amplify on your behalf as well. Because i see so. Many people get riled up hurricane or it doesn't the impacts really what matter at the end of the day. One one thing that comes to mind about twenty twenty and twenty twenty one and particularly. We're seeing spikes is the hurricane tropical storm risk superimposed on a pandemic Are there are there things that you've as the national hurricane center director thinking about concert with the director of fema emergency management folks Even even if we see fred approaching perhaps florida Depending on what happens that moves over hispaniola. I have to imagine that there are some thinking going on about covert and evacuation and shelters and so forth. How are you dealing with that. I think the pandemics made the pressure on us to to to have a good forecast is is never been higher. Be and the reason. I say that is the fact that you know if you're in that evacuation zones the with storm surge. You gotta get out there. There's just no pandemic or not if you have a big storm surge headed your weight you and get out now the planning and where you go change and you know the the sheltering part of it that emergency managers deal with the pressure comes here if you don't have to have to evacuate. We wanna make sure we're accurate enough that the decision could be made not to evacuate and that was in the case of of hurricane laura when some of the modeling was well to the west. And we were you know. We didn't want we didn't think it would ever get over to a situation where houston would have to go because you're dealing with a pandemic and if they don't have to it's okay we don't want them to so luckily we the scientists better that we could really narrow that down Better than ever. so yes the exercises. Have taken into account The pandemic we've changed things here to dr shopper. We everything you saw last year with the masks. Lots of opinions on that by the way So i mean we. We're small place. We have eleven hurricane specialists and we have the tropical forecast branch in the people that have visited this building. It's not big. So we we we had we had cohort scheduling where pairs of to work together and they didn't see the other the whole season Some of the shift changes occurred from the building and out in the parking lot behind me. we did everything to keep ourselves safe. Because you know the nation's counting on us to keep them safe so we took that very serious Here we actually take that still remains on the floor that when there's somebody on duty at the desk no one's allowed to step inside that tape So it's interesting how it changed. How do business on maroon t managers and it is part of the decision making process with with the pandemic and safety. So i think we feel the pressure more than ever. We're up to it. We really are up to to make sure we get a good forecast out there so we can help the decision making you know. Last question is really contemporary. Because we just had the latest. Ipcc report come out and of course it says some things. About extreme events particularly hurricanes. Tropical cyclone does this factor in any whammy. You are weather agency for the most part and you know i know for a fact but someone twitter. Sometimes people struggle with the difference between weather and climate. Because you'll see people say hey. It's cold today. That means climate change is real right that whether in climate but do you see a report like the ipc and have implications for how you think about things hurricane center. Yeah i think. I think we're we're definitely more short fused generally than that here at the hurricane center. But now you look at the data. I mean all you do is take a query on the database right and look at look at trends and you know. There's there's been this discussion about the number of hurricanes. Well tough correlation. They are right. We we were seeing more than ever. We're we're also we're also going after some of those sloppier peski or storms that form right off the coast and so the actual number is hard to correlate to anything because we're actually seeing more so that's not the that's not the conversation there really isn't but the trend that has the conversation a couple things one warm atmosphere more rain. You know. we're we're seeing some pretty big rain events From these systems not just on the coast but well inland. It's just physics or rousers a whole more water. You're going to get more rain. Yeah it is and the other trend. That's interesting. I know you've seen it. There is a trend over the last century. We're getting some stronger storms. And you know you look at the number of cat fours and fives that we have. There's an increasing number of some of these strong storms. And i think that's something to consider into the future as well. You got more energy you can get stronger. Storms and the rapid tests. Vacation dr shepper. We had nine. Tropical cyclones in two thousand twenty have rapid intensification nine. And that's what we're talking. You're talking thirty knots of wind increase in twenty four hours things cranking fast and it's hard to keep up with that so And then we'll see what sea level rise and it's not a direct correlation love arise and storm surge. It's it's highly variable some places. Get the same someplace. Get more But i do see trend. That could push that storm surge farther inland. So that's that's the long term when you look at you know hurricanes you look at where we're headed and what we're going to be dealing with those some things that keep in our minds and we do get ready for that and that's why we some more research to that rapid intensification and i know for us here in georgia. You know with hurricane michael. We had a storm that was gusting hundred mph winds well into our agricultural regions in the.

"To evacuate people have that information of emergency manager does. They're the ones that make the big decisions. We don't want that to happen So that's why we you know we really talk about get that official forecast because otherwise he'll jump all over the place and if it's not consistent can you imagine trying to make decisions when things are bouncing all over the place so we will always pretty conservative with that forecast for that reason and we are back on. The weather beaks podcast. I'm dr marshall shepherd from the university of georgia dome speaking with ken. Graham director of the national hurricane center Well respected expert Has long career in this field and you were just talking about you mentioned lawrence. I wanted to kind of reflect back on the twenty twenty season. The things that come to mind for me already mentioned one getting well into the greek alphabet other things that came to mind for me. Just how many storms we had in the gulf of mexico storms or some of the storms rapidly intensified and. then we had. I believe it was sally which wasn't particularly long storm kind of lingered What are your reflections on the twenty twenty hurricane season. And what are some takeaways that we can pass onto the twenty one season beyond from that season about lessons. Learned some things. Stand out definitely about the twenty twenty season. One thirty named storms. I mean the word relentless always comes to mind. Just you know. They weren't always. It wasn't didn't see some of the the the super of storms as many thousand five but we did hurricane. Laura was incredibly powerful the most powerful one onto hit louisiana but some of the standout things i look back i think of comparing laura and sally when i think about one of the trading items for the managers. We talk about hurricanes really. Don't care about your timelines. i mean some storms. You know it's nice to have an extra size. It feels good to accomplish that exercise and we got good plans out there right. But there's there's times you may have ten days notice. There's other times of a hurricane florence. For example you see all the way across the atlantic plenty of time but then you look at michael you know. Think about three days. Four days notice on a category five hurricane and you know looking at history has only been four category five to hit the continental united states and in history. Every one of them was a tropical storm just three days prior hurricanes. Don't care about our timelines. So that's one thing that struck me. Twenty twenty the other. Is there also different. You look at our consistency and accuracy was laura. We struggle with sally. And whenever you have a assistant that's so slow and a hurricane hunter or in there that's all coordinated outta here. As well the hurricane hunters week we plot the flights and work with them and communicate the different routes. If you have a center jump ten miles that could be a thirty or forty miles jumper where it makes landfall and i think that's tough to communicate that yes. We're getting better. But some of them are still quite quite a struggle. And the other things. Dr sheppard. That that i look back words matter and i and i look back at hurricaine laura and having information that not everybody was out of some of those coastal louisiana areas when we're forecasting fifteen to twenty feet of storm surge and i i remember the morning Here we are thinking about words and the word unsurvivable came to mind that that is oh there it has created a lot of That was a very provocative statement but was it calculated because not everybody was out of there. And you can't survive fifteen to twenty feet of storm search And in the end they got out. They got out. And we didn't lose a single person hurricane laura from storm surge but what struck me as well as we lost many more people because of carbon monoxide after the storm than we actually did associated with the storm surge. So this this whole after the storm is you may get through it. That's no fun afterwards. it's no fun. It's the power issues in his so dangerous so trying to communicate all the dangerous after the storm is another thing that we just gotta continue to social media remind people proper use of of anything from generators to watch out for power lines are even using. This is a little little strong but it's true. I mean after a storm is not the time to be looking at the instruction manual on how to use a chainsaw and yay that's strong. I get it but those are real things that we see after a storm and we have to talk. We have to have these tough conversations to save lives after the storm as well so those are some things that stand out. I guess for me to twenty twenty. But i'm not just the united states but big impacts on a central america just staggering impacts than i can tell you comparing.

New developments unfold continuously catch up on the day's news from around the world and across Texas by listening to all things considered. Weekday afternoons on your local NPR station. 33 minutes past the hour. Texas Standard Time I'm David Brown. It is the second largest city in the Rio Grande Valley, and it's an important regional hub that connects the U. S. To Mexico right now. The city of McAllen. Is in the midst of choosing a new leader. On Saturday, voters will select between two Macallan city commissioners in a runoff ahead of the election reporter Renaldo Leonidas Junior spoke with the two candidates about their views on how border policy and immigration affect McAllen. First up a bit on their background that only Caravella Whitaker is McAllen's mayor, Pro TEM and as commissioner has represented District six for eight years. She also grew up here and went off to college and stayed away for about 10 years and Redirected myself back to the city of McAllen in in the last 35 years, I have given back to my community in many, many ways that includes serving on several boards for community organizations and being involved with the local boys and girls Club. And the Macallan International Museum of Arts and Science. She says she's the best candidate because she has a diverse guilty of knowledge and knows the city well because she was born here. Her opponent heavy envelope. Both was elected Macallan City Commissioner for District one in early 2018. He grew up in Crystal City, northwest of Laredo. It was very similar, as was very the majority Hispanic people, and it was ah agricultural community kind of like it is to be back in the old days here with that with that type of labor. When I came over here, I told right at home, You know the people who were wonderful. He's been practicing law for about 25 years and has its own firm. He says voters should choose him over his opponent because he's not afraid to make tough decisions and says he has decades of experience. Both candidates are vying to replace Mayor Jim Darling, who's led Macallan since 2013. And while things like the border wall and immigration policy are controlled by the federal government as mayor, Darling didn't shy away from Wayne in, including criticizing former President Trump's border wall plans. I ask both candidates were they stood on the issue. Fellow, Whitaker says. When it comes to the wall, well, you have to ask yourself. Is it working and spending the amounts of money for something that is not working? We need to fix it. And so if that's going to help them, that's what they needed. You know, That's what that's what they choose to do. Each time we get a new president. It's a different It's different, so we need to come to a consensus of you know what's best. While President Joe Biden had said he would not build more border wall, there have been recent local reports of wall related land condemnation lawsuits in the Valley. Still v Alo both cause it's a dead issue. I don't even think it's worth talk anymore. I know the issues we have has not really the border wall. But reconstructing the levees to protect our residents One way Macallan directly since the effects of federal immigration policies is at its airports and bus station U S Customs and Border Protection. Often coordinates with the city to drop off. Recently released migrants, elected officials and other border communities have supported and helped arriving migrants. I asked which candidate what role they saw the city plane when it comes to immigration. Available, says We shouldn't have a role because immigration is not something we budget for is not something we have authority over. Look, our concern is public safety. We don't want him to get hurt, and we definitely don't want him to hurt anybody. Residents. The city of McAllen announced last month that it was named in the top 10 safest cities in the country. According to Smart Ass it calm, who analyze things like violent and property crime data. Arlene said in a press release that the city's crime rate has been dropping and it's at the lowest It's been in 36 years. Villa Whitaker says Macallan is just a hub. You know, I believe that through all these years, we should have been able to come up with a plan. In order for us not to be in the situation where we are today. And so I think if we find a way to properly get a system a proper, you know, process tol move them one border issue Both candidates want to see happen. Re opened the border to non essential travel. Restriction started at the beginning of the pandemic, and the city has seen some of the effects. We all were always looking for the our partners in the south of Mexicans to come up here spend their money and we want that the yellow both and Vela Whitaker say Macallan sustained itself during the pandemic because city residents shopped locally. Fellow Whitaker also want to see Mexican national shopping in the city again, and there's another reason she wants to see the border reopen in a lot of have not seen their families for the last 14 months or so, you know, in a lot of a miss their families, of course, and so I had to see their families again, I think is the most important about all of this, but unfortunately, it's not up to us. It's up to the feds. And so we do visit with the feds. Quite often. I believe most of them think that we're gonna it's getting closer than further which is good.

Their Their CBS CBS News News special special report report on on that that Piper's Piper's Go Go live live to to Lake Lake Charles, Charles, Louisiana Louisiana tonight tonight where where we just heard a little bit from the special report. Steve Dresner with W T O p Live with us, Steve. What can you add to the report? As far as damage already done there in Lake Charles, and now you may have more Well, that's true, Dimitri. Let me update the figures and actually, yo, about three minutes ago. My power totally went out here in the hotel. I would be careful not to walk around. I do come inside for a bit of safety reasons, because at one point we did have 94 95 mile per hour gusts. The hotel here at the Golden Nugget did have generators in an elevator power. But now we're totally in the dark. What I can tell you is the updated figures for power outages for The entire state of Louisiana were just over 92,000 in the state without power in Texas were just over 100,000 people without power and I'll parrot down just a little bit as Faras, the late Charles area looking at about 29,000 people without power, so the conditions still are not good. We're blowing rain, horizontal rain. There are plenty of people the hotel but right now we're completely without power in this area. What storm Surge concerns do you have there? Right now. Things have been OK. The storm surges you heard in the CBS report. Is there keeping an eye on things, but no, no horrible flooding, so to speak, And you also heard on the CBS report. Folks around here are still for the most part recovering from Laura. Um, so it is a 12 punch. As far as getting through tonight and bringing you up to current situation. Once this kind of moves North North east and we're on the West side. Things will calm down, hopefully in the next hour But we're still the only with some tough conditions. Power outages, Dmitri allotted debris on the road ways You can't even go on any of the neighborhood street side streets. One of our technicians from one, the Power line Cos told us They have pulls down in a lot of these areas, so really, wherever you are right now is this storm hits? That's where you're staying for a while. I really cannot go anywhere. We're not isolated, You know, as Faras roads are concerned, but it's just because of debris and, of course again. No power no worse staying put here. Steve of just a final thought about anything unusual. Anything else unusual You've seen because debris on the roads that's pretty bad. It is pretty bad. Dimitri and again is I said before, folks around here are still recovering from Laura. Um, you heard on the CBS report Blue tarps every word, but you asked me about things that are unusual. I think this is the positive. I will tell you that many more people evacuated the area song What happened in Laura? And they did learn their lessons. Because is a city Sean in Hillary earlier today, I've not seen a long line of traffic on westbound I 10. I used the example like on Route 29 from Howard County to Montgomery County, Dmitri 47 Miles bumper to bumper traffic. Folks evacuating, so I think you can take a positive that a lot of people left the area. We really appreciate the update. Steve, stay safe there and we'll talk to you soon. Thanks, Dimitri. That's Steve Dresner. With W. T O p live on Skype from Lake Charles, Louisiana, he says just minutes before he came on the air. The hotel he's staying at has lost power.
