While most of the Mainstream Media focuses on New Orleans, there is a dangerous story developing in the city of LaPlace. There are more than 40,000 residents in St. John the Baptist Parish, just to the west of New Orleans.
The city is outside of the levee protection city and they were overwhelmed by storm surge and flood waters. Social media is filled with people begging to be rescued.
“We have received multiple reports of significant flooding in Laplace,” the National Weather Service office in New Orleans wrote on Twitter. “Take whatever means are necessary to protect your life.”
There are many reports of people trapped in their attics with small children. Let’s spread the word! Click here to follow Todd on Facebook.
Horrible news coming from Laplace. This is actually the 1st ground truth we have gotten but looking at the Frenier Landing gage by hurricane chaser @hurricanetrack & the rain that continues to fall this was a big fear. Flash Flood Emergency in place for the next 3 hours. #Ida https://t.co/WL8GlH5jML— NWS New Orleans (@NWSNewOrleans) August 30, 2021
