Twisters hit New Orleans
Two tornadoes early Thursday tore through New Orleans neighborhoods that were hit hard by Hurricane Katrina just five months earlier, collapsing at least one previously damaged house and battering the airport, authorities said.
Roofs were ripped off and utility poles came down, but no serious injuries were reported.
Electricity was knocked out for most of the morning at Louis Armstrong International Airport, grounding passenger flights and leaving travelers to wait in a dimly lit terminal powered by generators. The storm also ripped off part of a concourse roof, slammed one jetway into another, and flipped motorized runway luggage carts.
I’m waiting for Kanye West, Nagin, and Governor Blanco to blame this on Bush. Clue here, bad things happen to good people, and vice versa. Just do your jobs, help the people, and keep your mouths shut.
