From Councilmember Freddie King:
Good morning All,
I pray that all is well. As you know parts of Algiers were severely damaged in yesterday’s storm, thankfully there were no serious injuries.
Our office along with Captain Contreras, Chief Ferguson, Constable Edwin Shorty, and State Representative Delisha Boyd walked the McClendonville neighborhood. We had the opportunity to assess the damage and speak to business owners and residents who were affected. We also patrolled Old Algiers and Algiers Point as those neighborhoods were without power last night. Currently 700 Algiers residents are without power.
This morning I spoke with the Sanitation Department and they are beginning the cleaning process, but fallen power lines will present a challenge.
Our office along with SBA will do a joint tour of the damaged area this morning. I will provide more details as I receive them.
Our office has been in touch with the mayor’s office. The mayor will hold a press conference later today to update everyone on the situation.
Please share this information with your neighbors.
