Nurse Sees More Children Die From the Vaccine Than COVID
"Meanwhile, a nurse can cut one O 5 says she talks about how they're seeing more kids die of the vaccine than of COVID her words cut one O 5. My name is collet Martin. I'm an RN. I have 17 years, 12 years oncology, and the past 5 years I've been afloat resource nurse to all the different floors in the hospital. I'm extremely concerned with the IDA mandating this vaccine for our children. The reactions we were seeing in the hospital with adults are terrifying and they're being ignored. Just some examples of post vaccine reactions or blood clots. Heart attack strokes encephalopathy, heart arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation. I personally had a patient die three months after his vaccines at pericarditis, which we know is an own side effect. Diagnose 30 days after a shot, no mention to VAERS. Majority of our nurses nurse managers and some doctors do not even know what theirs is. I've spoken to our chief medicine, managers, other nurses, and why we're not reporting to VAERS, and the most common responses, what is VAERS? We have chemotherapies that we know have side effects causing blood cancers such as leukemia and ten plus years after giving the drug. We know this because we have real long-term trials on these drugs. We are not just seeing severe acute reactions with this vaccine, but we have zero idea what any long-term reactions are. Cancer is autoimmune infertility. We just don't know. Our children are not even at risk for this. As of now, we have more children that die from the COVID vaccine than of COVID itself.

Rep. Nicole Malliotakis: The Infrastructure Bill Is 'Incredibly' Important for Aging Cities Like New York
"Right, let's listen to Nicole malli attack. This is the congresswoman from New York. Again, I've always liked her. So disappointed that she voted with 12 other Republicans in the House and rescued the Biden agenda as The Wall Street Journal editorial which I'm going to share with you points out. Listen to her comments to Bill hemmer and Dana perino this morning on Fox News. 19 Republican senators voted for it as well. But for those who did not, they just think this is a bad Bill. Why did it get your yes vote? Well, this bill, look, I read this bill, and it is covered to cover infrastructure. $350 billion is going to roads highways and bridges, which you would consider traditional infrastructure, and in the other 550 billion is for ports, airports, seaports, ferry systems, coastal resiliency projects, like the east or seawall that's so important to my district. Sewer systems, which is so incredibly important following Ida, the damage that took place in New York City, upgrading our subway signals to a communication based train control. We're still relying on pre World War II equipment in some subways. So for an aging city like New York City, this bill was incredibly important. And the reality is is that this is the type of investment that people actually pay taxes for those basic infrastructure needs that you expect from government, but have been neglected for decades. And as you reported earlier, I also believe that we significantly took away the leverage from the socialist squad. It is why AOC and the others voted against it because they knew that if the true infrastructure Bill passed, the spotlight would go onto their social spending bill that includes the IRS agents. It includes the Amnesty. It includes giveaways to those who are in the country illegally, the taxes, the vaccine mandates and penalties, all of that that we remain opposed to and we are going to fight tooth and nail with the moderate Democrats to

Do Cities Need Resilience Corps to Deal With Climate Change?
"Cities have firefighters and trash collectors as the climate breaks down. Do they also need resilience. Core by sierra new gen when hurricane ida hit new orleans in early september tanya freeman brown made the difficult decision to stay in the city the fifty-three-year-old and her family's sheltered in an old brick hotel in the downtown area watching fierce winds of up to one hundred fifty miles per hour pelt rainwater at the windows and remembering the destruction wrought by hurricane katrina sixteen years earlier to the day. 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.
White House Climate Advisor Says Despite Recent Disasters, Don't Lose Hope
"Deadly flooding wildfires heat waves and droughts these have been the headlines all summer in the us with similar disasters around the world to visiting new jersey earlier this week to survey the damage from hurricane ida president biden said we're at an inflection point every part of the country is getting hit by stream weather and We're now living in real what the country is gonna look like and if we don't do so we can't turn it back very much but we can prevent it from getting worse. Abidin administration is pushing bills. Which would be the most sweeping climate change policies ever enacted in the us. But right now. They're still facing major hurdles in congress here to talk about this with us is president biden's national climate advisor gina mccarthy. We'll come back to all things considered thank scott. I know you often talk about the fact that you are optimistic. And even more optimistic than you've been before about enacting the climate policies. But it's been a really frightening summer and a lot of people see these disasters and they wonder. Is it just too late to prevent the worst of climate change. Why is that view wrong. Because a lot of people haven't first of all having these disasters happen and be experienced personally by one out of three people in the united states. Which is what's happened over the past just few months. It's not the way. I really wanted people to get familiar with climate and get active. It certainly would have liked action earlier but this is a tremendous opportunity. We have and. I don't want people to give up hope and i'll tell you why i'm not giving up. Hope number one. I think the president is on target in what he's asking congress to support. I think we'll get it over the finish line but also i want people to understand that we have opportunities with already existing solutions on climate.

"ida" Discussed on WSJ What's News
"Hurricane ida made landfall in louisiana the us oil sector remains crippled around eighty percent of offshore oil and gas production in the gulf of mexico is still offline and operators are struggling to bring production backup to capacity. So what made idaho so different from other storms joining me now. Is wall street journal. Us energy editor miguel muccio. Hi miguel. Thanks for being here my pleasure. So let's step back to nearly ten days ago when ida hit tell us about the impact. This storm had for onshore and offshore oil production in louisiana. Well ten days ago when the storm hit it hit pretty much right in the heart of the us oil and gas production infrastructure for offshore production. Right it sort of near the mouth of the mississippi and louisiana and most of the us offshore production is clustered right in that area that's significant because us offshore oil production makes up about seventeen percent of overall oil production in the united states in about five percent of gas production. Obviously you know these companies that operate in the shallow and deep waters of the gulf of mexico. they're accustomed to impacts from hurricanes. This is an almost annual event for them in which they have to shutdown some of these facilities temporarily and then turn them back on once. The storm passes but this time has been very different. This storm caused significantly more damage on shore as well as offshore compared to other hurricanes and as a result it's been very slow recovered. Tell us a little bit more about the impact after ida compared to hurricane katrina. This is the most significant impact since katrina. So there's been quite a few hurricanes in the last fifteen years but you would have to go back to katrina and then another storm that hit around that same time rita to see a significant impact of this nature on us offshore production. And what happened at that. Time was a little different. Because of course katrina was different katrina. Hit this area as a fairly powerful hurricane but it was it was more of a flooding event. After the fact the fact that levees broke inundated new orleans and affected the region in this case the impact is more from the direct wins of aita which were significantly stronger as a cat for category four hurricane when it hit the area and you know that affected of ports along the mississippi river that help service these offshore facilities but also refineries also gas processing plants in a bunch of related infrastructure that the oil industry basically needs to operate so now more than a week after ida what are the major challenges that remain for producers trying to bring capacity back to where it was before the storm. The producers are still in the process of inspecting a lot of these facilities. Which as you can imagine as a painstaking process when you have oil platforms descending hundreds and thousands of feet into the deep waters of the gulf of mexico so in many cases what these companies are still doing is trying to physically get people out to these platforms to inspect them and they have to look you know not only for potential leaks and damage but just make sure that everything can be turned back on safely so that process is still very much underway and it has been hampered in part because of some of the places onshore where they would normally take off from in terms of helicopters. And things like that. They were damaged so they are having to take off in some cases from different facilities different places or come up with contingency plans basically to do the work that they need to do to turn the offshore oil platforms back on one of the challenges that the companies are facing that their workforce was affected a lot of the workers who work on offshore rigs. They do so kind of in cycles. So that the way that it works is that you may work a shift. And you're going to be on offshore rigs for several weeks and then you come back and you're at home for several weeks. And that's the way a lot of these facilities are staffed and obviously the hardest hit areas in louisiana in following ida where a lot of rural parishes in state in the southeastern portion of the state. So there are many workers who go out work on these facilities who were personally impacted by this and are having to deal with personal issues at this time. Despite all the efforts and challenges you've just explained the impact on the oil markets. Hasn't been that significant so far. Why not this event occurred at a time when we're seeing some softening in oil demand due to the pandemic and the fact that we've had an increase in cases in some parts of the world. So normally i think what you would be seeing. This time is probably a significant decline in oil prices as a result of those factors. And instead it's been it's been kind of flat but we also had large inventories of gasoline built up at the end of the summer for example so even a refineries were significantly impacted by this event. It hasn't really translated to impacts for consumers yet. Is the oil industry changing the way at. Thanks about major storms like ida going forward so far. I haven't seen any major indications that they're changing based on this one storm but clearly. This is an industry that has a lot of money at stake in these facilities along the gulf of mexico and as we see concerns about climate change rising sea levels hurricane intensity etc. These are all facilities. That are literally in harm's way and investments that are threatened by by the potential of climate change to to make these kinds of events more frequent. So it's a conversation that i think the companies are beginning to have. I would say. But i haven't seen any examples of concrete changes that are happening yet but this is.

"To pay court costs it said that this event was pivotal and motivating ida to eventually pick up in harness. The power of the pen ida would write an article about her heart experience with the train company calling out the injustices in unfair treatment sheet endured around eighteen. Ninety one ardor began building her extraordinary career in journalism under the pen name. Lola ida would write in published several articles under this pen name while also acquiring owners credits for newspaper outlets and maintaining her teaching career but either wrote controversial articles criticizing the less than subpar conditions that were forced upon the segregated schools attended by african americans after her school became aware that it was either writing these articles. She was promptly led. Go as a teacher. Although it seemed devastating at the time this would be one of the best things to happen to ida following her termination. Ida was able to focus our efforts completely on writing and publishing ida spotlight would shine on the many injustices in civil rights issues endured by freed african americans one of the more prominent methods of intimidation were suffered by african americans. At the time was the threat of lynching a lynching was when a person was hanged usually by a mob from retrea or other highs spot until they died. These lynchings were usually exacted. By local mobs against african americans for trumped up our non existent crimes. One such lynching hit close to home. When one of ida's friends became a victim. After this event ida turned her target right on the lynching campaign that was plaguing african americans around eighteen ninety. Two idaho wrote several pieces publicly denouncing lynching an expose about a particularly terrible lynching in her neighborhood of memphis the expose enrage the town residents. Ida's newspaper was stormed and her office. Equipment and peace of mind were all completely destroyed. Luckily ida was not present in her home at the time as she was travelling. In order to learn more information about the injustice of lynching nationwide after learning about the tragic destruction offer newspaper in the threat on her life issued ever return to memphis ardy decided to remain in the north. I'd have began work for a newspaper. Titled the new york age. It was here that ida published her groundbreaking report of the epidemic of lynching within the country ida would publish another pivotal piece titled a red record. Which again focused on criticizing the practice in basis of lynchings against african americans around eighteen. Ninety three ida also began to travel overseas to speak on the injustice of lynchings and unfair treatment for african americans in the united states. Garnering international support in the same year. I advocated against the world's columbian exposition. Which had barred african americans from participation as well as was perpetuating untrue stereotypes about african americans again. You guys know. I love a good time line cross so i had to mention this wonderful tidbit. Ida had written in distributed in article titled the reason why the colored american is not in the world columbian exposition. This endeavor was funded and supported by two very important individuals in. Ida's life her future husband. And none other than frederick douglass. Like who would have thought that frederick douglass was getting around like he was like his light is a testament to the power of networking. I swear. I'm just always so amazed by how much overlap there wasn't history with these individuals. I mean truly incredible item married. Her future husband ferdinand barnett a lawyer and newspaper editor in eighteen. Ninety five they went on to have four children all while continuing to participate and advocate to crucial civil rights work not only with ida active in the anti lynching crusade but also in the women's rights movement for many years are also maintaining her family and home life as a mother. Her work never ceased through. Ida's combine efforts with other like minded activists. Several associations were formed with the mission of furthering african american issues. For example ida is recognized as a founding member of the national association of colored women the national equal rights leaders the negro fellowship league as well as the national association for the advancement of colored people ardo was also credited with following in her family's legacy in the creation of an african american school towards the end of her life after working a few years as a member of the chicago municipal court around nineteen thirty about a year before her death idol would go on to run for a position in the illinois state senate while she didn't win the fact that she even ran was pretty amazing. Woman was a powerhouse during a time. Were being an african american. And a woman was equated with weakness sadly on march twenty fifth nineteen thirty one i e wills passed away. She was sixty eight years. Old ida was often described as ambitious visionary and relentless in her pursuit of equal rights for african americans and women from the sudden death of both of her parents to her newspaper being destroyed in her life threatened to the loss of jobs in constantly seeing her fellow colleagues killed in lynched. how much courage and bravery it must have taken to investigate these lynchings. Viewing these atrocities face. I at ground zero and still have the tenacity to continue on to right to challenge to put a spotlight on the horror that her people were facing in not to turn away to tell their stories so that the victim would never die but live immortal within her words. Ida b wells encompassed so many characteristics that made her hero but it was her pledge to the pursuit of truth injustice. That really hit home for me. And with her being a journalist. I had to end today's episode on one of her epic and quite quite moral quotes the way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them and glaringly unapologetically brilliantly.

So please stay tuned for next episode but the individual in today's story was above all things daring in outspoken. their life's work centered around giving a voice to the silenced. And empowering the disenfranchised this person had to endure awful tragedies having everything they stood for challenged risking their life in limb just for the betterment of others and in spite of all the hate resistance they became one of the most iconic figures in our history for taking on generations of stereotypes and discrimination. These stories always get a bit close to home for me as well because i love to write in always appreciate a fellow author. So in today's episode we will be covering the impassioned the influential the inspiring ida b wells ida. B wells was born ida bell wells on july sixteenth eighteen sixty two in holly springs mississippi. Ida was the eldest. Born to james and lizzie wells. Who had seven other children. All were born in slaved as they lived on a plantation in mississippi whom or members of the confederacy during the civil war in the previous episode. We talked a bit about president. Lincoln's revolutionary decision to issue the emancipation proclamation on january. First eighteen sixty three during the civil war ida in her family were officially freed from slavery as they resided in a confederate state before either was one year old immediately following. The war was the pivotal reconstruction period with a divided territories of the union in the confederacy. Determine how they would begin to come back together as a single nation. Ida's parents were dutiful in diligence supporters of african american rights in particular the right to an education. Ida's father james was directly involved in starting in serving on the board of trustees for school for freed african americans that school rushed. College is still a notable inactive university. Today falling under the umbrella of historically black colleges and universities ida would begin her educational career at this school attending in her early teens. Sadly heartbreaking circumstances would find ida early on in life in eighteen seventy eight while visiting her grandmother. I learned harling news. Ida's mother father in her youngest sibling. Just an infant had passed away from yellow fever. Her parents sudden-death turn ida from a teenager with no children into a parent of six suffering from the grief and loss of one's parents. It would be understandable for a child to shy away in resist taking on a role with such incredible responsibility but did ida shy away from her obligation torture family. Absolutely not i realize that. She had to become the sole provider for herself in her siblings and planned for next steps. Accordingly ida dropped out of school in did the impossible. Although ida was in her early teens reportedly to be aged sixteen at the most of the time for parents death she was able to convince a local county administrator that she was eighteen years old and secured a job as a teacher. We can already see how her parents early influence lived on through artists dedication to education after a few years working in mississippi ardy decided to move her family to memphis tennessee or a close family member. Currently lives around eighteen. Eighty four upon her arrival in memphis ida was able to again secure work as a teacher and began taking classes at the nearby school of fisk university. Located in nashville. It was on one of her routine train. Rides from memphis to nashville that ida would experience a fateful event. That would light a fire in her. That could not be contained for the rest of her days on this particular day ida had purchased a first class ticket for her. Commute from memphis to nashville. When ida attempted to board the first clash train in sit in her paid for seat the train conductors demanded that she moved to another car that was designated for african americans. Ida as any sensible person would refused. She had paid for ticket and was rightly entitled to sit in her current place in first class naturally. The train operators became enraged. The nation was still so polarized after the civil war and although african americans were free they were not at all treated as human beings. Let alone equals who are afforded basic rights. A black woman such as ida standing up for herself with unacceptable to say the least ida was forcibly removed from the train. But not without a fight it was reported that ida was able to injure one of the men though. I'm sure not at all what was deserved based on her treatment. But i didn't stop the fight there. She filed a lawsuit against the train company and initially won the case and was awarded settlement after an appeal to the federal level. The case was overturned in the original verdict. Vacated idle lost her settlement and was ordered.

"Camera footage of the rising waters to social media and streamed the winds on facebook live. Reporters weren't embedded in these coastal and low-lying areas because the danger was simply too great. So webcams were the main way to assess the damage on sunday. I know i was looking at twitter last night. Were you consuming any of the videos. And other things people were posting of ida as it came ashore. Yeah absolutely it's Mean this is right on. I mean it's it. It's this is the first time we've you know Interacted with a natural disaster.

Thanks so much for the perspective. Thanks brad start here fake. Id's are out fake vaccine. Cards are in the disturbing new scam factories. After the break the noise level in politics can be overwhelming. That's why the team it.

Listen tune into the fivethirtyeight politics. Podcast every monday and thursday. That's five thirty eight. The numbers spell them out five thirty eight politics every monday and thursday. Wherever you get your podcasts the crazy thing about hurricane ida arriving on the gulf coast right now is not like louisiana hospitals. Didn't already have stuff to deal with. We we're really in a crisis situation. I don't know how much longer we're going to be able to do this over. Nineteen hospitalizations have exploded. Nationwide over the last month and with that comes cova deaths over the last week. We've been now averaging a thousand a day. One thousand americans every day dawn and the scientists struggled to catch up to how quickly this virus has mutated. You might remember a while back the. Us government actually launched an investigation to figure out where this virus even came from. That investigation has reached some conclusions kind of and they just came in this weekend abc. Sasha ethnic has been pouring over the results of this paper. what do we know. Sasha well what we know is we don't know everything yet the. Us intelligence community released a summary of their findings. That candidly said. They're still divided really divided. On what the most likely origins of kovic could be now. They've called around two hypotheses that seem viable and have seen bible for a while to the larger international community either. The virus came from natural exposure to an infected animal or it could have come from an accidental lab week. We are seeing divide within the intelligence community on the findings here for elements as our intelligence community said with low confidence that kobe was initially spread from an animal while one element said with moderate confidence that the first human infection was in fact the result of a lab associated incident likely through experiments or handling animals and samples at wuhan institute of urology. And it's true. This kind of work handling corona viruses is inherently risky and accidents. Do happen. we just don't know if it happened this time. They leaning towards one or the other shit like four agency. Say we think it's natural but our confidence levels low like you said then another agency says we're moderately confident that this came from a lab at some point moderates higher than low right like. Should that be the working assumption. At this point it's tough. At this point there are so many different ways to parse this language and it's really nuanced. We just don't know enough yet to say for certain whether that happened here. You don't have to be sherlock holmes to figure this out if the first cases of covered nineteen occurred in november with lab workers. Doesn't that make it more likely than not that. The source of the virus was in the lab not a wet market. What they do rule out here though is the possibility that this virus was developed as a bioweapon by china which would escalate this to a whole other realm of international issues. Frankly it's been floated here at home by some on the right and it's been used as kind of a political football but the chinese communist party was actively engaged in viral research at the wuhan institute of virology lab leak is also possible and it's premature at this point to rule it out with more data. Brad that's exactly the problem. We continue to call for china to provide the needed access to data and samples. We will need the cooperation of chinese scientists and chinese public health officials. If we're gonna do the proper surveillance serologically of people who were infected in china as well as the animal and after this reports summary was released biden criticized china for preventing international investigators from accessing critical information that they asked for we haven't had access to laboratories determined whether or not i have not reached a conclusion because our intelligence me is not certain. China has pushed back in vehemently denied that the virus could have come from one of their labs. We not accept baseless unfounded accusations that are politically motivated instead. Suggesting the investigation should flip and take a look at american labs instead. We'll so in the meantime regardless of how it began the viruses still killing people. We had the thousand a day number. Florida just had to bring in a dozen mobile morgues. These are remote more than hold a dozen bodies each because hospitals have just run out of room. We know the vaccines of the single most effective way to stop the dying. But you've also been reporting on the lengths that people are going to avoid getting vaccinated right. Yeah as much as we're all craving to know where. Kobe came from and how we got here. I think people are also pretty ready to hear how we're going to get out of this pandemic now and we know vaccines are a big part of that right. More shots and arms means we hopefully can pull ourselves out of this faster but there are still some out there who are hesitant and still refused to get the vaccine but they still want to do the things that they want to do on a daily basis. And that's getting harder and harder and what federal health authorities have told us exclusively. Brad is that they're seeing a really alarming surge in reports of people selling buying and using fake kobe vaccination cards when i speak with students about the ball chargebacks. They she program they personally know exactly to get these vaccine arts. This is happening in plain sight. Right it's not like it's only existing on the shady dark web anymore. Fraudsters are sticking out publicly accessible domains and selling these fake cards for one hundred bucks two hundred bucks a pop usually we are seeing it be widespread and part of that is because it's being done across social media in e commerce where anybody who might run into it could become a participant in it. Theoretically you buy this card kind of like a fake. Id and it gets. You passed all of the new requirements. We're seeing being imposed and for enterprising criminals out there. That fresh demand offers a really ripe opportunity. Some people rather than get the vaccine which is free are paying money for a fake card and risking prosecution because it's against the law who could be that dumb what cybersecurity experts have told us now is. It's not just the fake paper cards anymore. What's new and really scary about what they're seeing. Is that these scammers online are offering to hack into medical databases to make it. Look like you have in fact gotten the shot. And it's not this like flimsy cardboard thing that you're just flashing in front of someone's face but can use your personal information to blackmail you down the line or they can just sell it for other people for nefarious acts so bad. This is concerning really concerning on several levels right. You think the paper card has so many verifying issues with it that you could use the vaccine passport thing but lots of states have actually outlawed the vaccine passports on the grounds that it would be giving up too much medical information now perhaps being used as almost a pretense for hackers to go round changing medical information bizarre story. Sasha has nick.

Third was not going to be an issue. Flash flooding and wind was really the story for new orleans to life or death test of the city's infrastructure and our team is on the ground.

We're cova came from from abc news. This start here. I'm brad mielke sixteen years ago when one word became etched in our memories forever. That word was katrina. Hurricane katrina seems destined to be the most costly natural disaster in american history. People who thought they were unscathed katrina woke up to rising floodwaters. The hurricane made landfall over southern louisiana on august twenty ninth. The levees broke later that day over this past weekend. Sixteen years later to the day. A new storm slammed into new orleans. And if it's possible to believe this one was even stronger that monster hurricane ida roaring ashore this category four hurricane slamming into the us. This sunday making landfall just before one. Pm eastern this afternoon. We're still as this morning. Getting fuller sense of exactly. How much damage is littered around new orleans as the storm has north. But we were able to make contact with. Abc's chief meteorologist. Ginger zee overnight. Is the center of the storm was hitting new orleans. Ginger if you're safe there can you just tell me what you're seeing right now. I mean in new orleans itself. This was tough to watch because people were terrified right now. It is just darkness. New orleans says the entire city is without power. And that's because of a transmission failure. They're calling catastrophic. I'm so glad that the people south of here that are not protected by levees most of them in the mandatory evacuation zones listened. Because that's where we saw the most damage there was growing concern in grand isle louisiana. The images of water rushing into homes there so the surge is very high the roads have been impassable for a while the storm surge the highest in that ten to sixteen foot range right where we anticipated to be met dirty right side of the storm in new orleans itself. It's all about the wind. Those incredible wind speeds gusting ninety plus miles per hour taking down. We saw debris flying through canal street. We ginger. I'm sorry it sounds insane behind you like there's not piped in sound we're not adding this on our. What is happening where you are. There are still signs because if you've been on canal street it's all these signs that are saying. Hey come to our bar come over to this party but this one was a steel sign. I don't know what it was even advertising jeweler. I can see just a corner of it and it's ripping apart. It's deafening with the whistle of the winds plus these loud bangs that are coming from all these pieces of steel rolling down the street. There's a lot of focus on the city's upgraded levees but there's also a lot of concern about the flood. Water that could accumulate right here. Within the protected area. The city's palm will no doubt be put to the test thankfully because of the work. They did in engineering post katrina. Surge was not going to be an issue. Flash flooding and wind was really the story for new orleans. It was going to say so it stronger than katrina. That's as far as wind right. So was this a test for new orleans infrastructure. And from what you're looking at did it pass see. Here's where that's difficult to put these two storms up next to each other because they came to shore in a very different way. Geographically katrina went from south to north like a due south to north so it built all of the flooding into mississippi. Remember katrina was mississippi storm when it comes to storm surge. They had up to twenty eight feet of storm. Surge i was there in gulfport saw a hundred and fifty people in just that town die in the immediate storm. But you said it. New orleans happened hours later. It was an engineering fail. So they were on the left side of hurricane katrina now since then everything has been fixed so this is a levy. It looks like just a big hill. A lot of grass on on the other side is the mississippi river. It has been built up since katrina. It can now handle up to twenty feet of storm surge and ida came in at a different angle more of kind of a southeast to northwest trend and that pushed a lot of that really horrific storm surge not into the mouth of the mississippi where it had an katrina and intimacy itself but rather into the group of louisiana those low lying marshlands that are not protected whatsoever. They don't have the balls in the levees right into their where. It absorbed a lot of the surge before it could get up to lake pontchartrain and the mississippi river. So that's the good news and the difference between katrina and data harare. Gosh rude now at the close on rock dam as you could see a real significant water here already when you go sound from saint bernard parish to plant them in perish. You don't have that protection. And that's where the concern is or where you know if people stayed. Did they survive. Roy male railroad at forty five miles an hour sustained. Winds are first. Responders cannot get to.

What it has left behind though is devastating. Although at this moment it's difficult to determine to what degree we do know that almost a million people in louisiana have lost electricity and we do know that one person so far has been reported dead. Npr's john burnett is on the line with us from new orleans. John you rode out ida hotel in uptown. How bad was it well. The answer is that we don't really know yet. The storm started to ease up down here justice. The sky was turning from the color of an angry sea. Two black knight so it hasn't been safety for anyone to drive around and inventory the damage but the city of new orleans. Nearly a million people with seven hundred fifty thousand homes and businesses is completely without power. I looked at my hotel window here into the garden district in there. No lights at all. Imagine bourbon street plunged into complete darkness. The power company energy reported last night that it's equipment suffered catastrophic transmission damage because of the storm. There were reports that a major transmission tower near the mississippi river has collapsed. What we know is that the storm made landfall but then it slowed down and took a more northerly track. Which put it closer to new orleans and this data just got pummeled with winds exceeding seventy five miles per hour for hours. A weather station across the river not far from here registered. A hundred mile per hour wind gust. How does that compare with the rest of southeastern louisiana. Well we'll know better today. The spotty reports we've been monitoring on local news and social media. Is that these smaller towns. Closer to the coast just took a fearsome beating places like grand dial homa race lynn coquetry took a direct hit from one hundred and forty. Mph plus wins. We've seen reports of the wind peeling roofs off all all over this region a hospital in the town of galliano. A senior citizen center and metairie. Tv station in the new orleans area. There's also report that twenty two barges broke loose and the mississippi river downstream from new orleans. So we'll see what don brings. Here's governor john bel edwards at a press conference yesterday urging people to keep hunkering down today quite frankly. We can't tell you yet how soon it will be before. First responders are going to be able to respond to calls for assistance. So please don't go out.

Zalmai think about hurricane. I keep thinking about hurricane katrina too early to make that comparison Well hey i was here during and after katrina and i think we all know. There is no comparison Katrina was the costliest storm in history. Eighteen hundred dead more than one hundred billion dollars in damage. But let's just look at the weather. I actually had higher winds at landfall one hundred fifty miles per hour when it crossed the coast here. Compared to katrina one hundred twenty five miles per hour. Landfall the differences. That katrina was a category five in the middle of the gulf so it was pushing this mountain of water in front of a twenty foot storm surge in mississippi it then it dropped down to a cat. Three on landfall flood waters gushed into the canals and lakes surrounding interlacing greater new orleans and it led to the failure of the federally built levees and floodwalls. We remember eighty percent of the city was inundated. New orleans sank into utter chaos and washington Terribly bungled. its response right now. New orleans is experiencing a massive power outage.

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.

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.
