The weather, currently.
A chilly and drizzle-y start tomorrow but a dry end to the work week in store
A chilly and drizzle-y start tomorrow but a dry end to the work week in store
The ol’ fog and drizzle will be pervasive again tomorrow morning and plan for a cold drizzle at that as lows drop into the upper 30s. The cloud deck should rise by the afternoon with some breaks of blue sky visible. Temperatures will top in the above-average range by the order of five degrees, with highs in the low 60s. We’ll close out the work week with a quiet day in the Portland Metro on Friday. Morning fog will be less widespread and persistent with partly sunny skies to prevail in the afternoon. For the upcoming weekend, a few showers are possible but we may duck any rain altogether, and Sunday is looking dry… until the evening.— Lauren Casey
What you need to know, currently.
Distaster fatigue is real, y'all. The blue tarps in this picture aren't from the tornado. The blue tarps are damage that still hasn't been repaired from Ida, or in some cases, possibly even Zeta. 2 major hurricanes and a strong tornado in back to back to back years here in SELA.
A tornado touched down in Arabi Louisiana and New Orlean’s 9th Ward on Tuesday evening— killing one person and leaving devastation in its wake. As of Wednesday evening, thousands are still without power. 
The impacted area has sustained multiple severe weather events over the past decade including Hurricane Ida, about seven months ago. Many are still in recovery from Ida which knocked out the region’s electrical grid and left residents without power for months.
Yesterday’s tornado combined several risk-enhancing factors— striking an already vulnerable community at night.
Imagine Water Works— one of the key mutual aid organizations that helped during  Hurricane Ida recovery— shared links to mutual aid resources and places to donate.

Sending our neighbors love in the aftermath of tonight’s tornadoes across our area. Let’s help keep each other safe, like we always do.

Reminder: Just like a hurricane, please don’t wander out to Arabi to look at damage right now.
