There already screaming for help when they were told to leave and how bad this thing was going to be. Now the ones they can talk to are told there is nothing we can do for you at this time you chose to stay there. Cannot under stand these people when you choose to do some thing and want people to come out and put there life on the line.

Louisiana geography and Hurricane education 101.

Grand Isle is a barrier island that is 8 miles long x 1 mile wide, home to 1400 permanent residents. Itís connected to the mainland of Jefferson Parish by the Caminada Pass bridge. The bridge was structurally damaged by Katrina and was rebuilt. If the bridge is gone, you canít get to the island.with gulf buoy reports of 155mph winds and 40 ft seas, things donít look good for Grand Isle





Types of camps on GIÖ from 50 yr old shacks to 1/2 million dollar weekend getaways




Grand Isle is very similar to Holly Beach that got obliterated by Hurricane Rita in 2005. Pics below of damage from Rita to HB as I expect the same type images to come from GI . Sad but true , prayers sent up for all in harms way. Iím experiencing wind gusts from 5-15 mph., expect lots of rain, possible flooding, and 30-60 mph winds later this evening in Lafayette.

I canít for the life of me understand why someone would stay on that island with this storm coming at them. Iíve been looking at the area on google earth and itís similar to bolivar peninsula that was destroyed during Ike. The whole island had to basically be part of the gulf as the storm made landfall.

Right, I think it was Typhoon that flipped 15 years ago or so. One of the TLP lost a tension let and she rolled over. Crazy bad storm.

Just saw the post at the top of this page, that’s not a TLP, bad deal right there for an asset that big to break loose. Wow, the upward force the waves produce when crashing into these assets is incredible. Hopefully they completely down manned.

Hindsight is 20/20 … not sure what other options were considered since the PD is located on an island. If the emergency response vehicles were parked over the bridge several miles away on the mainland, they would have still flooded with 15-20 feet of tidal surge. If the bridge was lost, damaged or rendered unpassable from the Hurricane, there’s no way the PD or fire department could use their vehicles to respond for emergencies & gas fires when needed

Regardless of their decision, it was a lose / lose situation. Maybe in the future Jefferson Parish will have to build a 2 or 3 story parking garage to prevent vehicles and offices from being flooded.


This rebuild design should be considered in the future for the GI PD. Hurricane Rita (2005) destroyed and leveled everything in Cameron Parish. The Parish School Board office was rebuilt , elevated 12 ft off the ground and to withstand hurricanes. It fared well during recent Hurricanes Laura & Delta (2020).

No offense brother ó- one positive thing about Hurricanes and other natural disasters Ö scientists, architects, and engineers can learn from the damage created and what structures survived. Simulators and classroom computers can only predict so much. Real world experiences are what teach us the most about catastrophic weather conditions.

Post Katrina, parts of New Orleans and surrounding communities were w/out power for 45+ days. Electricity once routed by above ground power lines and utility poles, were buried underground. IF loss of electricity is minimal in NOLA during Ida, then that decision to re-route old school utilities will have worked.

A childhood friend of my wife’s has a place on Grand Isle - he has rebuilt twice in just the years I’ve known him. Whenever we have gone there to fish for a few days I always look out at the gulf and think about how vulnerable that place is - the whole island can’t be more than just a few feet above seal level.

I disagree. Get the assets to high ground, if the bridge goes then you barge the assets back, not ideal but better than have to wait on new assets and then barging those across.

Hey Blake... hope all is well...

It's been a long day... family was hit by Ida ever since early this morning near Houma, through Thibodaux, then River Parishes (Hahnville, Norco).

So far, **** fortunate to have only property damage... trees lost, shingles gone, roof leaks and etc... but everyone survived... a little rattled, but survived.

I think tomorrow we begin to see the true devastation... my guess, it'll be severe and widespread...

Itís getting nasty here right now. Iím on the SE side of Baton Rouge in St. George.

Nobody has power but itís not that bad. Iím sitting on my back porch drinking a beer watching my fence about to get blown over.

LaPlace got hammered.

Baton Rouge would have had the worst storm ever if it didnít start heading east.

A friend of ours has family that stayed in Cut off and Larose. Just finished watching videos from Grande Isle, I bet it wasnít long into the storm that they regretted that decision.
