The water in the pictures of the previous post rose above the equipment ,then flooded the road called Market street Rd. The water then backed up onto I-10 ,flooding it & stranding several vehicles. This is one block from my house. The water rose to my corner & Mkt. St. was impassable on Sat. Pumps opened one lane so interstate traffic could be diverted to our small new bridge over that flooded bayou & park shown below.
It was hot as the power went off Fri. nite @ 9:15. The rest of the area went black at 11. There has not been power since then for others around me. I was w/o for 5 days. Praise Be when it came on as my feet touched the cool floor @ 6:41 a.m. Thurs.
It is so hard to keep track of time as each day was worrisome w/o any type of communications with the world outside my house. Those were the longest days of my life which I do not want to repeat. Food in the freezers spoiled & have been tossed. I cooked what I could on my gas stove.
