4 shot in car in Terrebonne Parish: sheriff


Four people were shot in a car early Saturday (June 29, 2019) in Terrebonne Parish, authorities said.

Four people were shot in a car that crashed into a utility pole early Saturday (June 29) near Schriever in Terrebonne Parish, authorities said.

Deputies responded to a call about the shooting around 3:30 a.m. and found a 2017 black Nissan Altima had crashed into a utility pole in the 2700 block of West Park Avenue, the department said. Deputies learned that four people had been shot and taken to hospitals outside the Houma area for treatment, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The names and conditions of the injured have not been released.

The shooting may have stemmed from an earlier disagreement that occurred outside a business, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives are investigating the incident and ask that anyone with information contact the department at (985) 876-2500 or the Bayou Region Crime Stoppers at 1-800-743-7433. Tipsters may be eligible for a cash reward.

Humidity returns [ Local Stories]

An outflow boundary wreaked havoc this afternoon and evening. It shows up on radar as a thin green line moving away from storms. It can indicate strong winds. Earlier this week we had an outflow boundary move over the Causeway and winds gusted to 40 mph. This time the Outflow boundary moved across the Northshore, the Lake and the South Shore. Winds gusted to 33 mph at Hammond, 40 mph on the Causeway and 52 mph at the Lakefront.

An outflow boundary is caused by cold air aloft in a thunderstorm falling to the ground, and then spreading away from the storm. Sometimes you just feel a sudden cool breeze before a storm. That's the outflow boundary. Sometimes it can be a strong wind like we had today. Mariners should always monitor the radar for these outflow boundaries. They can cause serious weather for boaters.

New Orleans’s ultimate horror movie filming locations map - [Curbed New Orleans - All]


From “Interview with the Vampire” to “American Horror Story”

NOLA’s history of witchcraft, its geography dotted with decaying above-ground cemeteries, and a reputation for housing all manner of fictional vampires makes it an ideal setting for celebrating the art of the scare. Not to mention that, thanks to its French colonial-style architecture, moss-hung oaks, and buttery subtropical light, it may be the most hauntingly photogenic city of all time.

Hollywood has certainly taken advantage of the Crescent City’s atmosphere over the years. Indeed, the city once known as Hollywood South (a title now held by Atlanta) and its outlying areas have become a popular shooting location for an impressive number of horror films and TV shows.

In 1964, the Bette Davis-Olivia De Havilland horror film Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte exploited the spooky potential of 19th-century plantation homes to great effect. In 1994, the city hosted Hollywood mega-stars Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt for the adaptation of Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire. Producer Ryan Murphy used the city as a backdrop for two gruesome seasons of American Horror Story, and most recently, it served as a backdrop for The Purge, a hyper-violent miniseries on USA Network.

To celebrate the city’s long history as a haven for some of Tinseltown’s ghastliest visions, we’ve put together a handy map of locations featured in horror films and TV shows, from the sprawling plantations west of the city to NOLA’s patchwork of cemeteries, churches, and late-night dive bars.

13 Dog-Friendly Patios in New Orleans - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Barks & Brunch Howl-o-ween at Flamingo-A-Go-Go

Because Fido deserves yappy hour too

Why bring your dog to a bar?

Because sometimes your wing man/woman has four legs. Because it turns an aimless walk into a trip fraught with purpose. Because it gives your pup a chance to socialize too. Because you’ll be amazed at what you can learn taking dogs to a bar - from vet names to dishing on service dog requirements and doggy daycare. And really, because it’s tail-wagging fun.

New Orleans, arguably one of the best drinking towns in the world, has plenty of pooch-friendly watering holes that welcome you and your furry companion, inside and outside. Typically, since this isn’t Paris, food isn’t served at a place where dogs convene. But if Rover chills outside, what’s the diff? And if the rules get bent once in a while, the belly rubs are worth it.

Do you have a favorite dog-friendly spot we missed? Send an email or leave us a comment.

The heat goes on, but more afternoon rain and storms [ Local Stories]

The Mississippi River is at 15.93 feet. It has dropped below 16 feet a few times, and then bumped back up. There will be some fluctuation, but a downward trend is forecast. There are 32 minor seepage points. 168 bays are open on the Spillway. The flood fight has been ongoing for 245 days. That's for the River at the Carrollton Gage at 11 feet or above. It's been 138 days over 15 feet. The Spillway was first opened for 44 days. The 2nd time it has now been opened 48 days. The flood fight in 1973 was 225 days, but all bays were open on the Spillway.The Corps of Engineers says there will be a slow closing of the Spillway when the river drops to 15.5 feet at New Orleans. That should be the 2nd or 3rd week of July. There is still a lot of water upriver, so this will be something to monitor. The river has to drop below and stay below 1.25 million cubic feet per second.https://ift.tt/2w6NC6r

Road rage in Slidell leads to shooting: police


Benjamin Talton was arrested Wednesday in connection with a road rage incident in Slidell.

A road rage incident in Slidell led to the arrest of a 71-year-old man accused of shooting another driver who had intentionally stopped his SUV in front of the gunman’s car Wednesday afternoon (June 26), police said.

Benjamin Talton, of Slidell, was booked with aggravated battery and aggravated assault with a firearm in the incident that left Matthew Ledet, 45, also of Slidell, hospitalized with non life threatening injuries, the Slidell Police Department reported in a news release.

Shortly before 2 p.m., police responded to a shooting on Tyler Drive near the Gause Boulevard intersection that stemmed from a road rage incident involving the two Slidell men.

Police said Ledet intentionally stopped his Honda Pilot SUV on Tyler Drive in front of Talton’s Honda Ridgeline truck. Ledet then got out of his vehicle and “forcefully” struck the hood of Talton’s truck, leaving a dent, police said.

As Ledet got back into his Pilot, Talton exited his truck with a gun and confronted Ledet. At some point in the encounter, Talton fired one shot from his pistol, striking Ledet in the arm, according to the news release.

The two men retreated to a nearby Chevron gas station where they both waited for police to arrive. Ledet was transported to University Hospital. Upon his release, police said Ledet will face charges of disturbing the peace, criminal damage and obstruction of public passage.

Police Chief Randy Fandal said citizens who encounter angry and aggressive drivers should call 911 rather than engaging in a confrontation.

“This is a very unfortunate incident and it could have been completely avoided,” Fandal said. “I urge all drivers to ignore the temptation of engaging in a road rage incident. All too often, these types of incidents can turn deadly. It’s not worth it.”

The Mississippi River is 16.04 feet. There are 33 minor seepage points. 168 bays are open on the Spillway. The Corps of Engineers met today and decided on a potential slow closing of the Spillway. When the River reaches 15.5 feet at New Orleans the slow closing will begin. This should be in the 2nd and 3rd week of July. There is still a lot of water upriver, so it is something to monitor.

17-year-old wounded in Florida area shooting


The teen arrived at a local hospital early Wednesday evening (June 26, 2019), police said.

A 17-year-old boy was shot in the shoulder Wednesday (June 26) near an intersection in the Florida area of New Orleans, police said.

The shooting occurred about 4:52 p.m. near Pleasure and Piety streets (map), NOPD spokesman Juan Barnes said in an email. The wounded teen arrived at a local hospital.

Wednesday evening’s shooting is the third to occur in that area in roughly 24 hours, according to police.

About 8 p.m. Tuesday, a 15-year-old girl was shot in the knee and a 14-year-old boy suffered a graze wound to his chest when someone in a dark-colored Acura exited the vehicle and opened fire in the 3200 block of Piety Street, about a block from Pleasant’s intersection with Piety.

Two men, ages 24 and 26, were shot about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, while traveling on Interstate 10 West approaching the Old Gentilly Road exit. Someone inside of a silver-colored vehicle began firing on the victims’ vehicle. The wounded men were taken to a hospital via private vehicle, police said.

No further details were immediately available.

Higher rain chance this weekend [ Local Stories]

The Mississippi River dropped below 16 feet tonight! Now 15.94 feet. It will likely stay around this level into Friday, then begin a slow fall.

There are 33 minor seepage points in the Metro. 168 Bays are open on the Spillway. The Spillway is allowing fresh water into the lake, along with a lot of nutrients from upstream. Add in heat and sunlight, and we have an algae bloom. The wind has been more out of the South, so really noticing the algae bloom on the Northshore. What happens is that the algae blooms, uses up oxygen, and some dies. Bacteria eat the dying algae, and use up more oxygen. This can cause more algae to die, and more oxygen depletion. Eventually it is possible to have a fish kill.
