8:09 am
when the 8th inside of the store. and that is not a place you want to be in the midst of a category for hurricane, because those eastern wins tend to be stronger. they said to be more powerful and caused much more devastation on the risks here. all huge, everything from dave re flying through the fence is coming loose and hitting people the downs power lines. and that's before we even get onto the subject at the water . the flooding from the rain no storm surges, which is what we saw with hurricane katrina. where 80 percent of this city ended up submerged. new orleans tell to evacuate a case. this happened again at central areas. it was voluntary. governor edwards no friend is characterized. it is one of the strongest hurricane, strongest in history since $1850.00. and its devastation is likely to be a bit. we shouldn't get ourselves in lower lying areas. it was mandatory. i'm still some state that would say half the neighborhood to stay in and the other half is
8:10 am
evacuated. so it's, it's more just to kind of be here to help as the sole heads north, it'll be hours before the extent of the devastation becomes clear, most hunkering down but some refuse the hurricanes may cause damage and death. but in true style you will, lanes refuses to give in pill lavelle al jazeera, you orleans louisiana and b c. j grey joins us live now from new orleans j. so this is one of the most powerful, hurricanes ever to hit the united states. tell us what's been happening the in new orleans where you are now well, it's really thrash this entire city, no power in all of metro newell. it's more than a 1000000 people now in the dark and the mayor says it may stay that way for 72 hours in some of the hardest sit areas. we've had some beer when driving rain getting a bit of a break right now in between bands on the back side of the system. but we're going
8:11 am
to have spinning rain and, and, and at times in tempering for the next 24 hours, we're going to continue to get wind gusts as well. what is when done? we'll take a look. i mean jackson's wherever we shave some of the trees that have been torn apart now, but look at the flag here, just barely hanging on at this point. and unfortunately, so with this city you've got moved away from building to the home. you've got windows that are shattered. it is really taking a beating here. and again things are over. well, this is a city that's below sea level. so in essence, it's a bowl here. and once water gets into that bowl, it's got to be pumped out. they refurbished, replace them added pumps after katrina. and those pumps are working at this point. but there's still a long way to go in all of this. and we've got some levy problems already, some over topping in some areas in the parish and we're feed parish. we know that there is a levy bridge there and
8:12 am
a concern for about $200.00 residents who decided they would ride this thing out and now water reform into their community. so the worst of it may not be over here in new orleans. and it's something that emergency team power teams, they're all staged and ready to get in. but can't until things calm down. yeah. jane, it's worth pointing out. it's 16 years many to the days since hurricane katrina devastated. new orleans. how will prepare, though, is the city this time around? yeah. much better preparation the time around staging those teams out of harm's way, but ready to rush and a lot of help from the federal government. free storm this time. hopefully that pays off for the dorm, but we've got to get there. and right now we're right in the middle of it. just a final thought to you. i mean, president biden declared a disaster in louisiana. can you remind our international audience how that help
8:13 am
the states? right yeah, it does open up a lot of federal funds in manpower to come in now. so once it reaches that disaster level and the president declares after they can move more people in to help out move more money into the area to help out long term with the recovery. so that's something that's very is going to desperately need. like we've talked about, it's really beat up here and it's going to take a lot of work to get back. and we see j grey reporting live from there from new orleans j. thank you. love to come here and just they are including remembering the for them the us president received the bodies of american soldiers killed and thursday, the cobbled apple and the fireflies and central mexico around to find out why more than that. i use hello
