New Orleans musician Jon Batiste showed his love for New Orleans, Louisiana and its people in a strong, powerful, beautiful heartfelt message at the 73rd Annual Emmy Awards Sunday night live from Los Angeles.
According to reports, a New Orleans area man has been arrested after allegedly threatening to shoot the mayor. Apparently, his frustration with the trash pick-up issue that has persisted across the city is what led to the threat made to 911-operators.
It has been nearly three weeks since Hurricane Ida battered the southeastern portion of Louisiana. And while power has been restored to much of the region, in New Orleans, residents are still waiting for trash pickups to resume.
Reports are saying that as many as ten people in New Orleans have died as a possible result of extreme heat conditions combined with power outages. One of those possible deaths include a photographer who recently sent out cries for help to President Biden and Mayor LaToya Cantrell on social media amidst the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.
