Hope is all cleared up by tomorrow as I'm flying into New Orleans tomorrow night...
For some reason it is a major story on the BBC even BBC Breakfast is leading on it, why is that the BBC is so USA centred when it comes to news coverage. Of seven news stories on what the BBC laughingly calls it's world news channel there were 7 items of news five of which were from the US. Nothing happening in Africa, South America or in fact most of the rest of the world it seems, but Trump was holding a rally in wherever and the rest of the world needed to know what he was saying.
Ratings. IF people didn't watch these stories wouldn't be headlines.
The hurricane sure, but there is a lot of rain forecast for that region.
In this context I don't think it's yankcentric. We're Brits, we ******* love weather.
Weather in NOLA is fine. It'll be wet but your flight should be okay.
Is it? Seems like every tactic to blame Trump for?
live streams showing what it's really like there now
website for tracking the rainfall
To be fair, it is a hurricane that will go in the record books for the rain event.
For example, this was posted on one site to show how serious the flooding is
and this is how it normally looks
Those signs/light on the bridge are nearly underwater.
I'd advise you to get your news from anywhere else than this unless you want everything with a nice dose of Trump and/or far right bias. It wouldn't surprise me if they find some way to blame Obama/liberals/gays/Muslims for the hurricane
One of the news networks hosts called for the owners of CNN to be hung and encouraged his listeners to "kill the globalists"
Just watching CNN over in the US, its bad. Talking about potentially 60inches of rain falling down in these neighbourhoods. Already some places are under 8feet of water, and its just going to rise and rise, as Harvey isn't going very fast, and coming back around on itself.
It's the only place that's been covering news of the hurricane. Hasn't been any political talk at all.
Mainstream news networks were covering anti-Trump stuff instead of the hurricane.
So the truth is almost the exact opposite of what you expected it to be.
Yes, the media in the USA isn't covering the sinking of Houston.
24/7 coverage from a local news outlet.
How deluded are you on a scale of 1-10?
How rude are you on a scale of 1-10
To be fair, I watched that channel last night for about 2 hours and never once did he talk about anything other than the weather.
About a 5
I can't suffer people making up lies.
I'm a bit worried for the Americans affected by this, Katrina shows how little the GOP cares. With Trump steering the ship it's genuinely concerning. He's too inexperienced.
