The house next to me was empty,repo by the bank and was rented by the govt to house Katrina folks.
They came to ask if they can use my phone and said their house was totaled,but they dont own any house in New Orleans,when they left,they left behind a $100 plus unpaid cable bills.
Then the bank said they wont rent out to any Katrina folks,they fixed up the house,put in new appliances and finally sold it.

We went to a motel in Huntsville, Alabama.

All that I know about where everybody else went, was from the mainstream media (which you have probably had as much access to as I have, over the years since Katrina). They said most went to Houston or Baton Rouge.

We are presently evacuated to West Memphis, Tennessee, for Hurricane Ida. We plan to return when power and water are restored, and the powers that be tell us it's OK to come back.

I am shocked at the number of people who decided to stay during Ida.

West Memphis is in Arkansas, across the bridge from Memphis, Tennessee (Basically, WEST of Memphis and the Mississippi River).

Many friends and relatives decided to stay, and we were surprised by that too. However, the conditions in New Orleans have been very unpleasant. So, several evacuated later, after the storm was gone.

Right! I meant to say West Memphis, Arkansas. Oops. Guess I am still a little rattled by all this. We went across a bridge and everything (hopefully not the one that failed recently!). Anyway, we are in Arkansas, not Tennessee.

Lots of evacuees in Texas. We are more than willing to give a helping hand to our neighbors in need.

I saw this posted elsewhere....

“ NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Officials in New Orleans will thoroughly inspect senior living apartments in the city in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida after finding people living in buildings without working generators, which left residents trapped in wheelchairs on dark, sweltering upper floors.
Hundreds were evacuated Saturday and the city later said five people had died in the privately run buildings in the days after the storm. The coroner’s office is investigating whether the deaths will be attributed to the hurricane, which struck land nine days before.
The managers of some of the homes for seniors evacuated out of state without making sure the residents would be safe after the storm, New Orleans City Council member Kristin Palmer said at a news conference.
“They’re hiding under the loophole of ‘independent living,’” Palmer said. “It’s not independent living if there’s no power and you’re in a wheelchair on the fourth floor.”
The city is creating teams of workers from the health, safety and permits, code enforcement and other departments. Their first focus is to make sure the senior homes are safe and evacuate people if necessary, Mayor LaToya Cantrell said.”

It was a bit of a gamble living in Slidell, but new home was specially built to take the punishment. Zero damage, and natural gas standby generator made a wonderful sound.
