At about 2:30 this morning, a tornado ripped through Westwego and Carrollton, destroying several homes and killing an elderly woman in a FEMA trailer. The resulting power outages closed several businesses and schools including Loyola and Tulane. Mom and I did not go to work today and my class was cancelled. Dad went out to the mid city office, but the power was out so I don’t believe he was able to accomplish much.While other people across the city had much bigger messes to clean up, I spent some of the afternoon tidying up my room. It wasn’t in particularly bad shape but it needed some work. My evening was spent with other trivial activities.
