New Orleans has a trash problem. Climate change means other cities will too.

Some neighborhoods went without sanitation services for over a month after Hurricane Ida. This story was published in partnership with Scalawag. As crews in New Orleans cleared roads, tarped roofs, and worked to restore power following Hurricane Ida this August, something else was festering—literally. Parts of the city went weeks without garbage collection in the aftermath of the storm, leaving food and wet debris to rot in the heat, and attracting swarms of disease-carrying insects and vermin.

Climate researchers funded $5.4M to study extreme weather impacts

BATON ROUGE – Earth’s climate is changing, and those changes have been identified as a threat to U.S. national security. To gather the latest, most critical data to address these challenges, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA, has awarded climate researchers $5.4 million over five years as part of the Southern Climate Impact Planning Program, or SCIPP. SCIPP is a collaborative research program between the University of Oklahoma, LSU, Texas Sea Grant at Texas A&M University and Adaptation International that has helped communities in the southcentral U.S. plan for and mitigate the impacts of weather and climate since 2008. This is the fourth phase of funding the program has received.

Watch For Fog, Warmth Continues

We're now on our way to the end of the week and charging ever so closely to the weekend!. Highs were in the 70s for everyone across Southeast Louisiana today! We're likely to run into some fog if we're out late tonight, but most of us will have to get through it around daybreak on Thursday morning. The worst of the fog is likeliest right around the sunrise hour in New Orleans which is at 6:39 AM on Thursday morning, but once we get around it we're set for another warm day in the lower to mid 70s! Remember those rain chances I discussed possible this weekend? Well, let's throw those aside and put the days with likeliest rain for the region into next week. Highs will stay in the mid 70s into and through the weekend before a couple cold fronts and chances of thunderstorms drop temperatures down a bit by next Monday. Watch out for the fog tonight, feel good about making weekend plans outside right now, and have a great night!
