Hello, my name is avihay, and I wish to travel in a f ew places in louisians, new-orleans included.

I wanted to know if it's possible after gustav, and how badly new-orleans was damaged.

Also, I wanted to know if have an estimation of what will be the effect of the next month's storms.


Thanks

Need a little more info really:
Are you flying into NOLA? Are you just staying in NOLA or are you planning to hit other areas of the state? And when do you actually plan on making this trip, soon or in a few months?
Ike is out there right now. I'd hold off another week at least. NOLA came out alright although they had some pretty major power outages. I'd take a guess and say the Quarter and CBD were fine and are probably lit by now. That's the major tourist areas.

there is a growing problem with regards to Ike. If it does indeed hit Louisiana, the impending situation is that there is a severe fuel shortage there. Our company delivers fuel to the majority of the state but the problem is supply. Namely that the refineries near NO had to be shut down for gustav and have not been restarted. THis means the fuel loading racks have to make-do with pre-Gustav fuel inventory, and that is almost entirely gone. Demand shot up 700% in gustav. What this basically boils down to is that if Ike forces mandatory evacuations, there really isnt enough fuel left in that part of the state for people to evacuate.

Hi darylwi,

I was thinking about flying to orlando, and from there make it by a car to NO. I was thinking about travelling in a few places in louisiana, but NO is an important site I'd like to visit.

I'm schedualed to visit NO either in the end of september, or in the end of october.

Hi Innotech,

Are the fuel prices are now much higher in louisiana than other parts of the US due to gustav?

By then, you'll probably be fine. Unless Ike hits us hard, we should be fine and recovered pretty well by then.

Even the end of September assuming Ike doesn't hit us. If it does, then perhaps October or later because we're not really ready for Ike now.
