-- -- -- We have a shot up right now in the city of New Orleans let's bring him back.
Are we so I don't wanna go Jeff -- that you really are starting get blown around nude debated whether or not he should be out there what about now.
No you know we're getting.
As hurricane force winds that this storm has just moved to the point we just got around -- -- get -- try to get out of it.
We just had hurricane force winds for the first time you know the storm just got close enough to us.
You know we talk about a landfall political was not an -- -- was down apartments perished that second landfall.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- And hands it you know as we said this is a category one storm this is a -- storm but.
I walk out here I give you an indication when you walk around the corner and.
This is what we will look at -- before.
What you want now -- this is a kind of conditions again on -- even had a stormy and they say well Max.
What they -- maximum.
But we speak continues that that's beat all along you still get variations of the storm and that's what we're getting help fortunately it's not quite as bad.
-- walk down.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The -- -- right now.
You know before you get out -- -- stuff and get away from the protection of the building them or you gotta get blown around.
Here's here's my my take on it right now.
We're at what we're gonna have a long period of time what we have these kind of conditions helping him going.
Still -- policed by the way this is canal street there's still patrolling you know -- We're gonna have this long period of a typical condition it's going to be if you just I think more.
Little pulpit system that pumping system in New Orleans that is even for the let me.
Because these cut away -- we're talking eighty mile per hour winds.
-- not anywhere here that I -- that we had -- Katrina.
Five we have this march storm dumping -- I'm your biggest amount of water.
All of this on this city and this remember is that teacup and you know this waters coveted filling this Citi -- They have to rely on this developing system vehicle yeah what if what he's got breached last time the -- system couldn't keep up.
This pumping system has the ability to I think the figure that they use is empty and Olympic size swimming pool in three seconds for second.
It's clearly world class -- system but this is given at a pretty good just.
Moving so slowly which we've talked about a couple of times it would -- -- you -- for the other people and I know from your spirits companies.
The hurricanes in the past and that as you said creates a whole new set.
-- challenges where are we in the timeline of -- right now how much longer.
Pretty good piece of metal at this moment in history.
Yeah this you know some -- that there -- some similarities to get -- -- curiously enough to feel like a real penalties.
And I was here -- Katrina seven years ago to the day was in a parking garage about you.
You've walked over.
That storm moved reasonably rapidly -- moved through this.
Maybe the slowest moving storm that I'd actually be.
-- it was stalled earlier this morning it was actually stalled.
We just got to hurricane force winds -- about sixty miles from the -- that this that are circulation about sixty miles from us.
My hands so.
You know what you do the math on speed -- -- storm -- move and about six miles -- -- ten hours there.
And then you've got a hold back into the -- we could be talking 24 hours we could be standing here tomorrow morning.
With the same kind of conditions potentially at the back and does not break.
-- -- that's the headline.
You know I'm not sure -- was the same police car we -- drive past -- once or twice he's there was at least to -- -- otherwise.
Is it just desolate there.
-- people evacuating well.
Well you know.
Wearing a hotel where there's a lot of people spend.
I would say it's evacuated you know New Orleans -- the bizarre places -- spent some time here.
W -- that you see that we're we're using to an event I don't know I think.
For the -- back what about what you didn't pan around and show them what you hear me.
Can you just turn around.
Turn around and -- where we are sure on the lights and everything that's what -- -- a little while ago.
-- I think I walks walks over on the street that he could get enough I -- out of the truck he's picked it up.
I walked over I thought it was what -- would -- -- of what political audio audio light -- over.
This kind of old whiskey breath and they'll put up -- -- down.
You know a block from suburban street there are people here.
Whose wife -- continues.
Regardless of whether you -- -- -- or whatever he.
He's a debate goes.
-- put this source close.
-- -- wouldn't.
Our people does -- so now after no -- that if -- if there's interest in place that you know you haven't found all sorts of it's not -- but largely.
Largely people aren't sheltering in place not so much evacuation has.
They're hunkered down somewhere and the police are still patrolling which to me is a good sign because what you really get the worst of conditions the police -- get off the street.
Great reporting -- down -- collar appreciate it.
