It seems like somebody else just goes completely crazy and does something. Crazy stupid tonight summary people Obama we'd better mental health in this country. But I don't think it's that simple. I don't think it's as simple thing when he batter mental health because even if we have better mental health treatment which is sorely lack Arianna for people who want the treatment. Madrassas are gonna solve all of us most people who need treatment. Don't won most people who you see the early signs. Of having mental breakdowns. Will not want help and will refuse it and most people see the early signs of someone else in the early stages of a mental breakdown. Don't wanna get involved. Don't wanna call the authorities don't want to have that person committed. Usually it's a friend or a loved one. Yeah and that's you have Briggs very delicate you know we've got to put jam in you know we've got to. We gotta get him some mental mental help just got along on the the stigma that comes with saying that. Got to get him some. So metal help you imagine having a loved one committed. I know that in some cases guide you wish someone would have done it before. They shot it well enough some ground. But even if someone is depressed. A loved one is depressed that's a difficult topic and often that's where it starts. So I don't have any answers that's not offering any answers on to say and every day now it seems that something happens somewhere that makes people go what in the world is happening. So it's like you know we've we've been. Knowing for some time that things have been out of control say in the Middle East even those spots in Europe but this is right here right. Right next door down the street. We're worried about terrorism worried about war worried about things like that. And we just have people who are killed each other at home. Whether it's over her. Relationships. And domestic situations. Someone who has a mental health problem. Whether it's over drugs whether you know whatever it is. And added some days I guess it does get the people on it gets overwhelming you out Douglas and those. I had unfortunately it's become so common in our country violence is such a part of our daily lives our fabric it happens every day. That most of it just becomes a murmur in the background and a buzz behind it. Everything else we do we does go on with their lives and try to ignored it. These dramatic cases make it on Casanova wait a minute what's going on. And I don't know I don't have any solutions and have a single solution might golfer in my gonna pretend to know how to solve. This incredibly complex and detailed problem but it just struck me. Yeah listening again to the news and everything else that happened you know it's ten years ago today. We were evacuating. It was time people were hit the road and get it was time they were attempting to navigate through the Contra flow trying to find anywhere ago where they'd be far enough away that they would not. The stock in Hurricane Katrina is wrath. It out early get out of harm's way people talk to some people 71014. Hours maybe more to get anywhere. And you're on every direction. And of people went up in Florida people in Texas people up in northern Mississippi people Arkansas and all points beyond we mid west. Way up. A Lotta Lotta that happen afterwards there once people you know once the storm hit and people like to go further they had gone far enough for the state and then again yes evicted just gonna chair concede that just how bad it was ten years ago today. Evacuation was underway in trying to give daddy here whole thing that anything will be left when they get back in unfortunately some people. When they finally could come back weeks or months later. Found out that many of them had lost absolutely everything it was the man was a monster storm. We boy years that we altered. Yet two more days of the observation that anniversary well today tomorrow that it. President Barack Obama will be here today. He arrives at noon at the airport. For security reasons and telling as well in his movements. But we will keep you posted it looks like they shut them in his nature afternoon. To move them around. Election now. My advice to use today if you can kind of move around you do it as little as possible because the president's going to be year from. Knew known about 5 o'clock. Lot of his movements via helicopter looks like maybe we just guessing. Please go. That's not exactly where he's going to be but it 4 o'clock you'll make an address carry it live here on WW.

One person Texas and it's 78 Celanese says the violence and craziness in the world is not more problems we just hear about it because of. Instant TV video and media like never before. Seems wars it is I think there's there's that's absolutely. Contributing factors there's absolutely no doubt that because we have so much instant information and her fingertips and because of the 24 hour news cycle. That we are hearing about more of the craziness and stupidity in the world blocked that having me and said. When you have six police officers in the state of Louisiana murdered. Ingests the first eight months of the year. And eight police officers have died in the line of duty six have actually been shot and killed. I don't think we can blame that on instant media that is. Scary and we would have heard about that out here when. Many years ago in here about the weather all day today people talk about it again. Enjoy the mild weather again this morning temperatures in the sixties and lower seventies and we are climbing up two at 89 later today.

In other NFL news Redskins outside linebacker junior Collette will miss the entire season with a torn Achilles he went down towards the end of yesterday's practice. Colette signed a one year 745000.

LSU head coach less miles hinted on his radio show that Brandon Harris will likely be taking the first snaps at quarterback for the tigers to open the season in just nine more days probably. We throw the ball as close as anybody we've been around but he needs to make sure that that he's doing all of the things that that make. The other ten guys more capable. That but is why the competition remains open with Anthony Jennings as miles wouldn't say who would finish this season under senator.

Thank you Stephen sort of picture and it's stupid that right now maybe saints fans to words saying our reality to keep this guy around. Feel a little better about the synthesis and let's go now in the locker rooms a lot better place without him is unfortunate that happy the team is taking but all in all. The the scenes as an organization are better without junior led that is guys and a lot of my football probably never again. With this Achilles injury.

Feels good to get out there folks right after this. 527 let's take a look at your forecast and for that we go to the Eyewitness News standpoint forecast center and mr. meteorologist Laura but now. Sunny skies for this Thursday and warm 89 with dry skies lower humidity and it pretty nice northeast breeze six to twelve miles an hour tonight. To be on the cool side 63 north of the lake and low seventies on the south sort. Friday mostly sunny and dry with highs of ninety but it starts to feel a little bit more humid on Saturday highs of 92. At 10% chance for street storm. For the pinpoint forecast thinner I'm Debbie get enough to be urologists are knocked out. Here in sixty the National Weather Service office in Slidell system upper fifties on the North Shore before the sun comes up this morning clearance 75 at the national at the international airport. In tanner 37 minutes after 5 AM at the early edition WWL forest is on this the 27 of August 2015. And the day before Friday happy Friday eve to you annual ordinary clothes. Remember ten years again today narco. I think so there it's on assault get out the are remember about part terrorists and then Hurricane Katrina was headed this way. But as a massive monster storm development. Everyone I believe. RT. Most people that. Everyone I know. I remember so vividly. Than that. Friday night before. Katrina hit. Bowl week where. Trying desperately to tell people forecasted changed can marry changed at 4 o'clock on Friday afternoon in the game of the third pre season saints game. And that was a dramatic thing it was it Rihanna was shifted under fifty miles resign they were saying is gonna hit the panhandle maybe mobile. And then that's it now. Between 1 o'clock and 4 o'clock this that now it's on an oil. 4 o'clock on Friday afternoon so many people checked out before we get Smart found before most people knew attacks before you alerts on your found before. News organizations like Iran could send you yup alerts on here found through taxed and through apps and things like that none of that existed. People world where error obviously but I think for the most part they eat they didn't get that latest thing. Yet none against the one that that got to go to crept up on their report they knew Katrina was out there. But. It wasn't supposed to come to new window. And once thus comes the Mississippi gulf. And when word came down late on Friday afternoon when it late 4 o'clock and Friday afternoon is late in a city that. Now often Anna winds down around lunchtime. On the prize or does it does. And they were high school football games in the saints game and it is all those things going on the people had to go and do. I remembered. Ten years ago today. My neighbors cut their grass we eating their flower bed rock at the dog. Apps and what do you do and why are you all leaving the leaving my totally leave. Katrina is coming out just go to Florida and now they changed it yesterday afternoon yeah it does and is coming here hard convincing. So then I think words finally says words finalists had to slowly filter. Half of those people who had turned on the radios Friday evening hours Saturday morning from those people who had. Watched some talent time and one much Internet news back then it was there's still fledgling thing and we had web site but there were like there today and known. And then people at the wrote now I sent my family away Friday night. I knew. Late Friday night when there forecasted change that there was going to be an evacuation. I tell my wife and kids get the pats get the things you are most important you are walking around the house with a cam corder revealing everything. So that we would have a record of everything we possibly were about to lose that we couldn't. Taking and I couldn't stand with them I sure wish I'd done that. Instead I took the whole gang down here. Alive he's on your cat yeah Canada the radio station yes we did. I've best decision I made was getting my family out of ten yet it really draws that are really elected focus on. The job at hand but I understand why people didn't and understands there because. No one. I used to losing anyone anticipated anything like app. I don't know we always told that can happen yeah we knew who. Living in a bowl eighteen feet below sea level surrounded by water. We knew that when you stand. It's Saint Louis cathedral look at the river you're looking out. And water that is only keep staying out because of a Levy we knew that if you stand. Anywhere on the along the lake levees you're looking out at the water and only thing keeping it from coming into the city in the region are those Lebanese. We knew that if you live on the Gulf Coast that. The water could come in with a storm surge today time lower plaque and Saint Bernard but there was no real protection against that storm surge West Bank. Lower Jefferson lower saint Charles. But no one wanted to really believe that the worst case scenario we'd always heard about could actually happen or what actually happened it. We were screaming and I remember ten years ago today I felt people in this could be the worst case scenario would be. This is setting up to be everything we've always feared and that's what most people did some people chose to stay or. Didn't have any means I would actually it by an evacuation ten years ago today. Another major storm company Gannett the red folks. Which you evacuate two day that's a good all right Katrina were in the Gulf of Mexico and he predicted to head this way I would I joke with the answer would be. Now. And now you think there's some. There is a big crowd out there wants to ride it out again now it's been ten years. As a lot of people in their teens and twenties who don't have a real memory about Katrina. It's in the pictures heard the stories that's true. And we haven't had a real. A major threat since then. So maybe you know probable soft I don't know if we have hurricane amnesia or not. But I wonder if a storm like Katrina we're in the gulf today and protected predicted ahead this way. Would you leave text me at 87870. When you say you Fam my way this time David oh absolutely nothing yet. Thank you against and you wait for him and it's reflective about twenty minutes Chris Miller will join us from the Lower Ninth Ward where the president. Is speaking later today in the days coming up at 6 o'clock. Oh god let's go live and direct the pinpoint forecast that if they get are saying. This meteorologist Laura but now they're nice. Yes it is Christmas it is cooler. It's nice out there I think they even more records this morning record lows as a link really there hasn't been a little cooler than this morning and yesterday. Propel this thing that that was yesterday but that it looks like the low temperatures does it records were a little bit high. So were starting to see a few more records come into play but we're about where we are yesterday 59 in Slidell we get 58 yesterday. Where rapid the united hand and that's about where we were yesterday and south of Philly here in the city were about 75 which is right where we were yesterday. All right so why are very similar a re Pete yeah well Nolan and I don't think complain about a repeat although I did talk to 1 woman yesterday morning at 6 o'clock. Who went to got a on the North Shore actually said she needed a sweater yet. 55 effect. I'm shocked to assist my dad you know if prepared for that at a gas indeed and we get it today and it happened. Tomorrow. Tomorrow morning so dry and still drive for Friday that a little more humidity over the weekends at the end of the workweek the beautiful weather. We can still looks nice it is going to be a little bit more humid up that 92 on Saturday 91 on Sunday. And about a ten to 20% chance for just an isolated storm. A case of the real change doesn't come today or Terrero. Yeah gradually moves in over the weekend that fact to be back in the kind of slammed it with the moisture by the weekend medic you'll search and it feels a bit more humid over the weekend are let's talk about Erica what's gone on out on the trop. There's still a tropical storm winds at fifty miles per hour this morning as far as tropical storms that's gone on fairly weak side and it's gonna move through. The Leeward Islands today that's areas like the British Virgin Islands US Virgin Islands. Saint Maarten Puerto Rico if you're familiar with those areas that's where their points and packs they mainly wind and rain. And after that the track I really from last night is continued to show up through the Bahamas which are just east of Florida. And the latest a couple of models do show it stain just off the coast of Florida so. Maybe it impacts in Florida mainly from coastal impacts but at this point it looks like the bulk of the storm may state just offshore from areas like Miami Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. OK so good looking less and less like it's a threat to the Gulf of Mexico as the yeah bottles continue to move a little bit more further east. I would say that with Pete's model you know run week yet it's better use for the gulf. I would say if you're traveling anywhere along the southeast coast from North Carolina. Through Florida Kirk yep relatives they're Charleston Savannah Jacksonville. Even up and says you know outer banks area North Carolina. Whether they should be watching this because some of the models to show what kind of heading up toward this coastline maybe by mid week next week and it's all changed at miles have been. Shifting as they do this that this is what happens this is tropical forecasting it's not a 100% you know so. They could still change but they need to be very vigilant there along the southeast coast I would say we're looking very good here in the end up. OK so we can't sound the all clear for the gulf but. We're getting more and more confidence that it looks like it's normal that head into the. An abort states east of us you know it could happen but the vote more than storms go east and the Bahamas. And you know east of Florida something free he would have to happen to send you west toward us. This meteorologist Laura about tell updating us on this Chris Chris cooler weather and what's going on that crispy. And I'd be too hot right at that. And and we as well as the tropics thank you for all of that. Wrong with people. North Clarendon Vermont. Read this story to giant. Asian python. Were rescued by a long time snake collector on turned over to state game wardens. And now headed to sanctuary there are being called homeless snack cakes. Police are trying to figure out exactly what happened. But they had dumped them the I mean they are long with a big thick snakes. Found in. In Vermont. Add that not their normal habitat probably. Yet apparently they word they've been able to figure out that they were from a Massachusetts Bay to rain forest reptiles you know. And out those are the people came to help okay oh okay. Caesars seventeen to eighteen feet long weighing 220 pounds each if not it's not a quick rescue operation and no. This is crazy. Man. The icons.

Where were they things you know that's the question what he sent this state is snake to synch where now average creepy story last. In California about it at me and picked up rattlesnakes take itself within. Best known what happen well you can imagine the rattlesnake was not too pleased and bitten on the hand and he may lose his. Amputate it because it routes by UID get the Celtic. I don't I don't even think back to Nazi and Abby got to tell you maybe I'll be worth that right attitude via. Social media alleged right but his three kids that this that the rattlesnake appeared angry I was already rattling when he went into graphic to take a healthy. You act I think notice if the Celtics. Sake what is wrong with the people around now you have a bit more. About now live and direct from the pin point forecasts. Coming up would you evacuate if another Katrina was headed this way text me at 87870. While we talked sports with Steve Geller happy Friday eve mr. Steve thanks Dave good morning everybody. Remarkable return to football for delta bro will reach a new high for the cornerback when he takes the field in the superdome for the first time with the saints on Sunday. We all know these exhibition games mean nothing in the standings but Bruce says they still count for something for us. I wanna get my opportunity to play on a failure now on I'm here for a reason and I wanna show our own American record of broke missed last week's game against the patriots with an injury but is now fully healthy ample play aim pre season contest at number three vs being used in taxes. Taking a look around the rest of the NFL the Washington Redskins have lost junior go left before he played a meaningful snap for them the outside linebacker suffered a torn Achilles tendon in practice Washington signed a letter to a one year contract in July. After he had an ugly falling out with the saints that prompted his release. Johnny Mann tells elbow soreness isn't going to go away and the browns quarterback will likely sit out Saturday's exhibition at Tampa Bay. Man Zell didn't throw practice again after an MRI showed no structural damage. Fourteen minus nine days till LSU football opens the season at home against me at least eight. There are many talented freshman on the tigers that are expected to can contribute this year. Head coach let's miles says try to keep an eye on Dante Jackson who has blazing speed and he's a guy that we put to the field right away. He's day talented corner. And also make it really picks staff's office. Jackson was ranked as the number three athlete in the class of 2015 by 247 sports and recently. Ran a four point 2440 yard dash and have four on sports talk the latest news and interviews from scenes training camp. Or hear from head coach Sean Payton wide receiver Brandon cooks safety rough field bush and more. I'm Steve Geller and that is your early morning look at sports. Six in front six they've gone Steve Geller with you on your radio would did it matter that Sean Payton was not at practice yesterday and Ellis became a big topic of debate via a lot of message boards van and a lot of places even hear on the radio. Sean paid his daughter was gonna college he took a day off from training camp to move her man. Would do was at the right over the long overdue is that no one's business. All I don't think it was that big of a deal I do I thought it was odd at first but calm when you look at it he was just missing one day of practice will be back with the team today. And players have been excuse like a Benjamin Watson for the birth of his child. And I guess it's kind of refreshing to see someone putting family first when the situations. You know of people tend to just have the job is as number one and it isn't during the season right now. Yeah if it even preparing for a meaningful game in accounted in the standing record determine ultimately take on the play out second thing I think I understand people being concerned more but. It took Monday off during training camp to move his daughter in to college. And a surprised a lot of people to do that and they were unhappy with him but hey. You know everyone's got opinions in a while commissioner I think most people realize the importance of the family and now that things are a lot different from olds old days. Talked to entertainment sports and WW and about half those texting estimates 78 of these they would evacuate again if it another Katrina was headed this way but ask that they would they would stay Tommy staying for the next four hours which again. They wouldn't. It was an accurate. Tea replied yes there abouts in the passing over my house in July of that year I was watching these wins sixty been ministries. To all the family you know and in the morning category one you get I think that was. And good harbinger would talk about new ones are recovering from Katrina. Also talk about this shot patent thing lead in the drop is get off at college I just went through that I'm conflict that is what I would have done when you weren't here he ain't got a working there.
