At some point yesterday her and started hearing more and more calls. For. The basic necessities for people in shelters. So. Toothpaste. And shampoo. The kinds of things that people just never would have thought to grab. When the boat was coming to get them as the water was guys there's no outside house armed and high water vehicles or helicopter pulling them off their roof. And that started being a little trouble.

I know this is record setting flooding I know this was unprecedented rainfall historic run that is now creating. On a herd of flooding in areas that have never flooded before I know was difficult to predict where it would ago. But he sounds. Right he's. Almost at wit's end. And he's trying to assure people yet we're gonna get food we're gonna get water we're gonna pick cots or any appointments. A while we will rescue you if you have been rats you out if we know you're there. And they probably will get all those things are you just you know. How many nights DA asked to go you don't.

I'm Steve Geller that your early morning look at some. Ties my five Dave Cohen Steve Geller with you on your radio the saints actually get credit pack things up and go to Texas. To practice with the Texans in Houston before playing them on Saturday. How big a loss is it for at least the first four games of the regular season. To know that your number one draft pick has a broken leg and will not be plain. Yet you never want him to meet to magnify one player's absence so much in that it's gonna be so detrimental to the team but I gotta say. He was drafted at defensive tackle. In need of that push up the middle that this team was so desperately so lacking. On it's it's definitely going to be a big hit to me but luckily. You have a guy like that Tyler Davis and in his second year and a veteran in the fairly coming in here as well hopefully those two can stay healthy because. Deep position is that little at least a little bit deeper than it has been in the past but still to meet a huge fugitive defense. So he's actually ready to go after the bye week when they Panthers under the dome October 16 but it. Training during that time is that even done he's a rookie I rarely been inundated the system but. We'll see what happens. Tell Americans out for at least. For now at eight weeks thanks Steve you're only out for a few more minutes we'll get to pick in 25 minutes more sports here on WW well find that was Steve's favorite wings are at that point. But it's estimated 78 tennis what T Tuesday where the best wings in southeast Louisiana. What's your favorite flavor orbit text messages and your forecast after this we've got a thirty to 40% chance of rain in the next few days with highs. In the load ninety's some of those afternoon thunderstorms storms could still be heavy but there will be fewer of them. After traveling around the state of Louisiana good news is more roads are open the bad news is. A lot remain closed especially the I ten I Tenet's closed in one place after another between New Orleans and Lake Charles he can actually get to banners if you're very patient and won a detour and detours detour again. But it's not easy to do most of by twelve is now open. All the way from Hammond to westerners were closed in bad owners and their closes. Once you get into the town on US 61 another major roads if you're 37 minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL first news on the sixteenth of August 2016. It is eight Tuesday and not Monday and it was a very hard Monday from many people on our states. And I know it was been it's been difficult with all the flooding and all of the misery. But hey we're making our way not only through the week but through this flooding event. Although we are watching southern areas saint James there's ascension parish. He's banners parish now water filling up it's amazing how many closures there are along the I ten now. As a more and more portions of that rotor going under water between Lake Charles, Louisiana. And New Orleans oh I ten really not a good option and you heard Carol's and I twelve is open now all the way to badly hurt cowboy just like a major breakthrough now not really because right when he gets 1012 split is close to it still polite and you're going to be dealing with so many detours if you try to get into patent owners. It's never going to be back. Up to of this is not a hey it's open everybody out yeah exactly religious. Say it's more. Because of a lot of people try to get on there it is going to be miserable detours implies yeah out. And the frustration levels are I'm real quick you better bring all coal boat load of patients. Because it's not going to be easy traveling across the state for another day or Q and just wanna put that out there yet eking that we wanna go probably. If you detour detour in the tour and the two again amnesty to involve sitting in sitting. Habits is something on social media and some interest vaccinated and it's every it's driving me queries. Someone has started. Many people I guess that started this campaign. Insisting the president Barack Obama has not declared federal disaster in the Louisiana and they are saying why hasn't he needs to do this this is ridiculous that. He did now I use we were reporting a passion he call. The governor on Sunday. And personally told him that the four impacted paris'. That they were able to document that had been devastated already work. Covered by the federal disaster declaration. And that freed up federal authorities to provide all kinds of help that previously was not available. It also frees people up to seek individual assistance from FEMA. And FEMA is urging you to go online and to call. I don't know why. Somebody got on a kick why they're all these posts out there. Damning the president for not declaring a federal disaster in Louisiana. As images text and he says the president hasn't called it a disaster. Day did. This is not a time for politics. And not the time to say that Barack Obama socks and I've seen that over the Internet because he doesn't care about the people of Louisiana. I mean wing into the discussion of whether he should come here and visit and we get in the discussion about. You know those kinds of things but there's been a federal coordinator on the ground since day one infective he was still here since March. And they've been funneling federal now is everything happening fast enough from the federal government from the state government from Red Cross. From parish governments the answer clearly is for some people absolutely not now know. Because. If you were listening half an hour ago. You heard me play. Desperate. Video. That the president of Livingston pairs posted to FaceBook last night. Talking about there was no food and water shelters are not enough no cots and pillows and blanket. And now thousands of people waiting to be rescued had to be patient they'd get through them. But they couldn't get to them right now. So is this a difficult time yes. We were all the resources in place and ready to go when it happened now. Because no one thought it was gonna beat this bad it wasn't a hurricane. It wasn't a tropical to it came without. The kind of warnings we would normally like to get at least a couple of days to ramp things up. So. Let's not play politics that as the year it's it's not a this. Lets you play what he'd Tuesday though that's one man. We've against the great suggestions on where to get the best chicken wings in southeast Louisiana the best interest of these places are closed because of so he can't get it is because the roads to close whatever is there will take that into account it. You're a favorite place and you want and a hankering for wings I am I did. I got the Buffalo Wild Wings right near me in the works on just fine you affairs flavor of like that teriyaki. Asthma on line I don't know if it's somebody else's hooters. I going to unite the naked. I'm not the matter ya and naked. Frye to take the wing wrote in the grease and you know what any Browning nine then put it in the sauce when it comes out and and how much additional. Spicy buffalo you like yeah I'm I love. Honey Barbeque now he that. I'd like parmesan garlic like those mean I'm not really pick yelling most wings but. If I'm just getting one flavor it's going to be traditional mocha off so you need to cooled bounced off the dip in eight. I don't know that I'd like celery and rain to go out and not entries down Dellucci ranch yet but I don't need it just like the labor need to cool down. I don't go for the suicide burn your roof are now that's silly but I like traditional high. In spite of an author's man Choo fried chicken wings are we've heard that place again that's and as eliminating enclave more apparently airy fairy developers who says men Hugh very difficult to stop meeting once you start. Coupe DeVille and Hammond. Another presence as is it unusual choice but wit's end and Carrollton admits it makes the most incredible pesto way okay. Does this taste in tanner on Loyola wing Shaq those as we get food rock. And known where it is that's account yeah I'm always trying to find one of these darn trucks you know their FaceBook it's the Alka wings and things and desperate man coop do drills south side cafe in slide now. Says crystal. Crystal worker says has the best around Tet wings and ten crystals. Pretend box here. I'd kind of like not look so cute the text messages candidate that and it's seventy. That's what T Tuesday on where to get the best chicken wings. In and around New Orleans in these. Negative talking about. The team director Iran WW well AM implement them right now eleven directed and point forecasts that are welcoming and missed meteorologist Alexander Branford. Alexandra we're getting more and more reports of places Alex Renton. Man and places in ascension in saint James in in and lower. East Baton Rouge pairs where the water is rising as we speak in one road after another going underwater we don't seven Livingston payers. Rescue calls have been increasing. All of last night so this water as predicted is still coming out in many places. Yeah it's still is an eight has not started to go down at Denham springs itself but as we've been talking some of those lower locations are signs now maybe cresting. So not only T need the rivers to go down. But you need them to do it down enough to start to drain all of those other little areas you know with the water has spread out beyond the river. Yeah a lot of people didn't understand that. By you. Mansion. In Baton Rouge and the lakes my trend more pong are actually won big base. And that. When it rains like it did 152027. Inches that waters spreading that supposed to go in a more upon eventually into the pot to train. All the way to banners and that's why we're seeing all this plot. Yeah I'm and it's it's really something to see and like you say you know it's days afterward you know you think maybe your. Here in the clear you know and unfortunately these areas are still seeing it and continuing to rise. And I'm especially in that area that you just mentioned it's going to take. It's gonna take some time so it's still at major flood stage for example at French settlement where you know of course that it needs there's that's what we talk about that. But it's going to take maybe another day or so before it falls. Below major flood stage and then maybe until Friday before it drops to mind our flight states please you know you really needed to do. Yes so really you're talking about that many of these areas that are still flooded or just starting to flood. Won't dry out until next weekend. Yeah unfortunately I think it's going to be at least he big difference there you know at that lower part of the river south of denim springs. You know it'll it'll be a few days for Sharon unfortunate. Just really heartbreaking and everybody had to against. The good news is the sun will be out and we won't be dealing with much more range of people can be rescued people can. In the years that are drying out in the northern parts of south Louisiana served during assessments and we're not worried about too much more rain. Delaying. The draining that is happening or will have a very slowly. Exactly say today is. Really for the rest of this week it's kind of just typical August weather you know we have high pressure kind of building in from the east. We have he had humidity and we have some scattered storms today I have a 40% chance. And and what we saw yesterday is that they are kind of moving too so even if the Baton Rouge area. You know areas around more parts of fourth and get as heavy downpour it'll be moving pretty quickly act thanks so hopefully it won't aggravate it's too it's too much. Well that's a good news it will be hot though folks retire about mid ninety's and that triple digit heat index ratings. Yup that'll be the story all week and in fact tomorrow to the end of the week I have the rain chance just about 30%. So even a little bit lower than today when I'm 40% so it's just become one of these things. Really hot kind of sweltering August 2 weeks with couple of thunderstorms each afternoon. Mystery around this Alexander Branford we wanna give people something to smile about come want to share with you his story out of Hampton New Hampshire. Where an oversized rubber duck. That was stolen. From a New Hampshire Stanley home five years ago has been return. It's a back. They got their oversized rubber duck back but here's the weird weird that it. Over the last five years they've been receiving postcards and pictures of the Duff in locations all over the world. And invective FaceBook page document in the global striding Gail ducky. As a huge following. And people still don't know who took yet. And why they did this and then gave it back. Really are still like they got updates on it as it lets them and yet so they don't like there's Poland I don't see Robert got you know like. And how they got a lot of voters plane or whatever but they did maybe they I don't know. But it's back and it was returned with a suitcase full of memories from visits to twenty different countries. This do what the strangest stories that hurt you. The abductors identity remains in this. Yeah just ducked back we had fun traveling around the world to what is really allowed on the fancy piece of performance art and yeah. But to smile about thanks Alexandra did think you know sports Steve Geller after this well. Water is coming up in places like Gramercy and surrender this morning reports it is now over US sixty ones of folks more flooding coming. And watch in the water rise also watch in sports if I was listening to it was Steve Geller. You gave good morning everybody saints' first round draft pick Shelden rankings was carted off the field yesterday during yesterday's training camp practice. What is with believed to be a broken Fiat deal surgeries expected and a likely miss four to eight weeks. How will coordinator Dennis Allen and the rest of the floor delete key recent. It's next man up and you're gonna face adversity. Throughout the season nobody knows when it's gonna calmer in what form it's gonna happen. All right but if that's the case its next man up. Thanks guys got to step up rise up and played that same level. Looks for all season acquisition nick fairly and second gear up and comer Tyler Davis and to open ears the collecting gold starting defensive tackles. Preparations for LSU's 2016 football season have taken a backseat this week. As mass of rain have led to flooding and meet Baton Rouge area as clean ups began head football coach less miles hopes that the community will come together and show how extraordinary. The citizens of the state can be. And pray that the that we don't have rain. I pray that the major damages done the the surroundings and that healing. Take place again so it's another great opportunity for Louisiana to them. Street it's a special place to live the tigers a practice this morning and then hold their final two day session in fall camp tomorrow. So mobile's had to settle for bronze in the balance beam at the Rio Olympics she has a chance at another call this evening in the floor exercise finals. Teammate Laura Hernandez took silver at the balance beam meanwhile Sean Miller the Bahamas drove to the finish line to win the women's 400 meter final prevent the United States Allyson Felix from capturing a field Olympic gold medal the US has medal count at the Rio Olympics now as the 175. And next closest countries China with 46. They on sports talk with Bobby gave me a Deuce McAllister and Deke Bellavia. This defense ever have a dominant player elected JJ watt. Is that the reason our d.s been so they were over the last few years which early morning look at sports behind Steve Geller. And those of us who haven't had an anatomy class in a while the stimulus it's like yes he broke his leg. I totally support or he broke his fragile and I guess it's important that we know that was the tibia over the trivial but it would just say leg. Broke leg but yeah okay he broke his leg that's what happened at first round draft pick Shelden rang cans and not the end of the world and I get news for the sensitive. No because you're providing them much needed push up the middle and showed a lot of promise during these early goings especially was a third practice. At saints you know it's the saints'. Patriots joint practices and he picked off Tom Brady and ran it back and house. Deathly gonna miss him hopefully gets back like you said in time for that game after the bye week yet affair place four chicken wings absolutely wing stop in Metairie we go there are quite often Erik flavor. I'll probably do a medium 'cause the wife doesn't like him too spicy. Obama promise you the promise of policy could get a medium like hooters medium case like nothing like a child labor at all right exactly but other places medium is pretty darn hot. So you gotta ask how hot is your medium. I was just go for the hot the spicy that way now it's going to be. Hot thanks Steve talked about fifteen minutes in sports as predicted we are seeing the water rising in places like southern living stand down into. Ascension parish and saint James bearish. We have more roads going underwater as we speak US 61 blocked in several places nights and blocked in several places so. It ain't over yet the flooding continues favor wing places the dark wings and admirals mansion Melba is wings snack. And Pizza Hut we'll put the whole list at WW dot com.
