The Governor of Louisiana just issued a State of Emergency due to a pumps crisis in New Orleans. Apparently, too many drainage pumps were offline last Saturday when a summer thunderstorm badly flooded portions of the East Bank. Ever since the deluge, Levees.org's civil engineer – H.J. Bosworth Jr – has been the go-to expert for nearly every TV and radio station in the city.
To stay updated, we urge you to follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook.

Hope this helped!
I doubt very much that I am the only person in this city that is embarrassed by how truly behind New Orleans is regarding the ability to order groceries online and have them delivered. I suppose the Walmart pick up thing is somewhat of a start but I doubt I'd actually use Walmart for groceries but at least they have lists, which is more than I can say for any of these other services. Instacart, Peapod, Shipt, heck, aliens from space, please come here to New Orleans and give us an efficient online grocery shopping and delivery service! :)
I would love to have a IKEA in the city of New Orleans . I moved from Atlanta back to hometown new Orleans this year. Ive shop at IKEA some many time s and I love the store . There so many pl moving to new Orleans plus the taxes is is so ridiculously high and ppl want to have great experiences shopping for there new apartment r home. and they don't want the crazy prices tags for luxury . I love nice things at reasonable price that I can afford on a glam chic fashionista Budget so if you find it in your heart to bring a IKEA to New Orleans I'll be so happy and grateful and I think everyone else will too thank you Angela W .
Fear of being hit and seriously injured by a car is a major deterrent for people considering whether to bike on city streets. At the same time, city transportation departments use historical crash data to prioritize street design projects where people have been killed and seriously injured. But new research shows that for cyclists, near misses, close calls, and aggressive behavior from other road users can also have a significant effect on people’s biking behaviors or even their decision to ride at all. How can data about these cycling near-misses better inform city transportation policy and street design?
Join NACTO for a conversation with Dr. Rachel Aldred, founder of the UK’s Near Miss Project, to learn how her research has been used to create cycling policy and design improvements in the UK before injuries occur, and why high-quality design is crucial for increased ridership. Dr. Aldred will touch on various approaches to near miss data collection, and how they can help cities provide a more comfortable biking experience, improve biking rates, and make streets safer for everyone.
This Neighborland post (ahead of it's time as it was) was the inspiration behind Crescent Cart - our local Grocery Delivery Service available to residents of the greater New Orleans Area (and beyond).
Please check us out: www.crescentcart.com/
Your feedback & criticism are welcome (and encouraged) - We're new, (but growing!) and would LOVE to hear what you think! Without customers - there is no Crescent Cart; We NEVER forget this - ya'll are #1.
Since day 1 we've strived to offer you: the most competitive pricing / fastest delivery options available / absolute easiest ordering process / and a number of other features that no other online grocery delivery services offer here in NOLA.
We are JUST getting started and have exciting plans to expand set for this year (soon you'll be able to shop for products just like you would from the industry leading grocery & homegoods delivery apps like Instacart and Google Express)!
