Rescue Helicopter Crashes NOLA

BayouBuzz.com - Louisiana Politics and News

A rescue helicopter crashed in New Orleans in a Katrina related incident. The crash occurred about four miles away from New Orleans. More information will follow.



Also, Louisiana Police shot at least individuals carrying guns on a New Orleans bridge Sunday. At least five were killed stated a deputy chief..

Deputy Police Chief W.J. Riley said the shootings took place on the Danziger Bridge, which connects Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi River.

The details are still sketchy but initially news services reported that the police killed army contractors, but, those facts have changed to indicate that the individuals killed were not involved in the construction operations.

Also, on Sunday, US homeland security chief Michael Chertoff referred to a complete evacuation of people from New Orleans. "We are not going to be able to have people sitting in houses in the city of New Orleans for weeks and months while we de-water and clean this city with the hope that we´re going to continue to supply them with food and water," Chertoff said in Metairie, Louisiana.


"The flooded places when dewatered are not going to be sanitary, not healthy. There´s not going to be a way to get food and water," he said.


The shooting underscores the chaos in the city and the need to evacuate all individuals but those absolutely necessary for operations and reconstruction.
