As if they needed more hardship. Please continue to keep this region in your prayers. Also, as much as I am looking forward to a snow day, I know that it can be as deadly as any other storm. Power outages are apparently common around here in the winter.
NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (CNN) — A possible tornado damaged parts of Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport and surrounding businesses in pre-dawn hours Thursday in suburban New Orleans, said police in Kenner, west of the city.
Police also reported damage in New Orleans, particularly in the Lakeview area near the 17th Street Canal — among the places hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina. The city is still reeling from the devastating flooding the hurricane caused last fall.
