For reference:



Quote
With an estimated population of 391,006 in 2018,[5] it is the most populous city in Louisiana. A major port, New Orleans is considered an economic and commercial hub for the broader Gulf Coast region of the United States.

New Orleans is world-renowned for its distinct music, Creole cuisine, unique dialect, and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. The historic heart of the city is the French Quarter, known for its French and Spanish Creole architecture and vibrant nightlife along Bourbon Street. The city has been described as the "most unique"[6] in the United States

It's animportant city.

That fool Obama didn't do anything about Katrina and now he's doing nothing about this storm. How long do we have to put with his shit?
