How the hurricane formed, its path
The National Weather Service issued a hurricane warning for southwest New Orleans at 7 p.m. At 7:20 p.m. The hurricane warning was extended to New Orleans at 7:18 p.m.
Doppler radar refers to a radar product that shows in pixels a sudden increase in spectrum width or how confusing the movements / wind speed is. The values that suddenly fell on Woodmer indicate the turbulence associated with a potential hurricane.
At 7:22 p.m., a hurricane blew over the Redwood Drive area of Timberlane.
The roundabout then arrived in Gretna at 7:24 pm, with the signature “Donut Hole” set on radar on Highway 90 trade lane. The hurricane was described as “major” and was confirmed by a National Weather Service employee at 7:25 pm, during which time its video was broadcast live on television stations throughout the New Orleans area.
The hurricane passed directly into the Derridown area at 7:26 p.m., radar data indicate that the Oakwood Center may have damaged areas around the shopping evening. Many subdivisions in that area were in the direct course of a devastating hurricane.
At 7:28 p.m., a hurricane struck west of Shirley Drive near Berman Memorial Park and Harriet Dupman Charter School. The Delcado Community College and Gilmore Park apartments were either directly affected by the hurricane or were uncomfortably nearby.
The video, which was broadcast live through television news stations, depicted horizontal loops exiting the vortex-like vortex – extreme vertical motion and wind approaching speeds of up to 130 mph.
The hurricane was pounding the Arabian Peninsula at 7:29 pm after crossing the Mississippi River. It appears to have entered the Lower 9th Ward near the St. Bernard Indoor Shooting Center or just west of the railroad near the American Sugar Refinery.
Many neighborhoods were badly damaged, and some homes were destroyed. A “garbage ball” appeared on radar near West Jackson Drive at 7:32 p.m. It is unclear whether it crossed the highway at 7:45 p.m.
Parental thunderstorms formed at the point of pushing through a cold front area. The risk of a strong hurricane was advertised, but the focus was on the north. However, this storm had something that others did not have: loneliness. It was a solitary, unique supercell that allowed it to tap into the full wind shear without competing with its neighbors. Unfortunately, that translates to that storm reaching its full destructive power.
Early social media videos, with the possibility of an EF3 hurricane or higher, indicate damage in the EF2 range at least. The National Weather Service, L.A., in Slide said it was sending personnel to inspect the damage.
