New to the Krewe June 23, 2021
and as we go to break, meet Emma Catherine Alexis who is new to the crew at West Jefferson Medical Center. Mom says baby Emma is a combination of both parents. She arrived june 16th weighing £6.9 ounces and she’s going home in a very pretty blue outfits. Thanks for sticking with us. Time. Now is 4 30. Let’s go ahead and give you a look at the satellite and radar. You can see things are starting to clear up but it has been a really wet Wednesday but thankfully starting to pass by. We’ve had several days of rain and we are hoping it all stops in time so we can enjoy the longer days of sun that I love the long fingers crossed as we head into the weekend as well. Chief meteorologist Margaret or live in the Weather center and Margaret Margaret. Do your magic. Please bring us nice weather for the weekend so you gotta cross your fingers and toes to is what I’m saying. Sunday your rain chances are going to go up. We’ve got a surge of tropical moisture moving our way outside right now though it’s looking so much better. Look, we had a good to over two inches of rain again. Heard in the Garden District 3.5. Heard from Tony over in the Black Pearl, That’s uptown Carrollton neighborhood, 1.9. The problem is, it came down so fast. So here is a look at what’s happening right now. The good news is the rain is diminished and I see that as the trend as we go into the evening hours, this is where we had some of those flood reports. Right, so we look over here in Gretna, numerous streets flooded. That was at 12 56 Bridge City 1 45. Flash flooding was occurring up here in Harrah Han Road flooded. There were more than one road flooded And that was at 1250. But you look at the rainfall totals in this Doppler indicated rainfall and it was close to two inches. We do have some rain off to the west, moving northeast, it’s going to be heading towards La Plaza by about 501 on the north shore. This is a band of rain and storms. It’s moving to the northeast, so it’s going to be heading towards Bogalusa by about 4 51. Not much in south Mississippi and then there is some drier air aloft, but you can’t feel it at the surface high today, 87 about the area now mid to the upper eighties. And you look at the forecast. The good news is rain will decrease upper seventies to the mid eighties with that potential for a little bit of fog in the morning. More on that all important weekend coming up. All right, Margaret, thank you. And of course W. D. S. You as you cover during any weather threat. So please pull out your cell phone, open up the camera and scan the QR code on the right of your screen. It’s going to take you straight to our weather page where the advisories that are up right now are all in place. Let’s head to jefferson parish because there are serious concerns about the number of economically disadvantaged Children. Some estimates put that number at more than 20,000 kids. WDS use morgan lettuces live in memory to explain how the parish council is stepping up to make sure there is access to early childhood education services no matter what the cost is morgan. Mhm. Yeah. Traverso Councilman scott walker recently announced a $225,000 donation that will help with those education efforts. That money is coming from the parish council and it will pay for the schooling of 16 Children ages five and under that money will go through the Jefferson parish public school system before eventually ending up in the hands Of the Jefferson Ready Start Network. That is a group made up of child care experts who will then distribute the necessary services. And Walker admits helping just 16 kids is the start to dealing with a very complex issue. Every great operation has to have a start. You have to have to begin before you get anywhere close to the end of the journey is the more important thing. So we’re not looking at the finish line for this thing. We’re looking at the start and how we can make it better as we go forward in the next year to 10 years and so coming up all new at five, we talked to a third generation daycare owner in the metarie area. She explains why early childhood education is so important for the entire community for now reporting live in jefferson parish and morgan lentils. WDS you news morgan, thank you. Knew today at four New Orleans needs more firefighters. They are short, more than 100 firefighters and that would only bring them up to the minimum of the city says it needs the head of the city’s Firefighter Union shared these numbers today with the city council’s budget committee. Aaron Mishler says the department will exceed its overtime budget because they don’t have enough firefighters to cover each shift. The city cannot match the pace of retirements and resignations. And Mishler says a lot of these firefighters are taking jobs with other departments. We’re not competitive with, not just in the region, but within the state. Uh we’re not competitive based on paying emoluments that other departments are getting within the state. The mayor’s office hasn’t responded yet to Mitchell’s claims. The Fire Department says it’s on track to record a $4 million dollar deficit this year. Let’s get you now to our coronavirus coverage. There’s some new data from John Hopkins University and it shows black people as well as younger people are dying at a higher rate than any others deaths among black Americans made up nearly 19% of all covid deaths in May. Also, according to the CDC, black people in american indians have been more than twice as likely to die of covid. In recent weeks, nearly 300 people are still dying each and every day across the United States. And now there’s that new concern about the covid variant first discovered in India. Medical workers say it’s poised to become the dominant strain across the across the country. And top U. S. Health leaders are concerned because they say it could cause more cases of covid across the country later this year. Mandy gaither explains why it may already account for one in every five Covid 19 infections in the US. The delta variant is currently the greatest threat in the U. S. To our attempt to eliminate covid 19. New research suggests that variant is spreading more quickly through areas where fewer americans are vaccinated and top U. S. Health officials believe it will be the predominant variant in the U. S. In the months, if not weeks ahead. This is the most transmissible of all the variants that we’ve seen and and we saw what happened in the UK where it overtook the entire nation. So I’m worried that’s going to happen in the U. S. A recent model finds a delta like variant that’s assumed to be 60% more transmissible than the alpha variant first identified in the UK. Coupled with 75% of eligible americans getting vaccinated can result in covid 19 bouncing back from summer lows to cause more than 3000 deaths per week at various points during the fall in winter, coinciding with Children returning to school and whether that pushes people back indoors. But officials say the covid 19 vaccines do provide protection against the delta variant because of that dr Anthony Fauci says it’s unlikely there will be a return in the surge of Covid 19 cases seen in 2020. But he says there could be localized surges as summer continues in places where vaccination rates are lower. We have the tools so let’s use them and crush the outbreak for health. Minute I’m mandy gaither and according to a new pre print study which hasn’t been peer reviewed yet as of early to the middle of this month, bo Delta and another variant called gamma appear to make up for similar portions of cases across the United States. However, Delta appears to be spreading faster. The CBC is preparing for booster shots of COVID-19 vaccines. The agency’s director shared the news today. During a meeting of the agency’s advisory committee, she spoke with NBC’s Lester Holt on what we can expect. We, you know, in an interagency way are planning to boost because quite honestly, we want to make sure that if we see more disease out there, we have a mechanism were fully ready to combat it. Today will be a scientific discussion about how those decisions should be made. We are not, I don’t believe planning on any decision about when those boosters will come. Dr kobilinsky says she does not think the CDC has enough data on boosters to make a decision about a timeline just yet. And you can catch Lester Holt’s full interview with Dr WAlensky tonight on NBC nightly News. That’s at 5 30. Immediately following our newscast at five p.m. Now, look at this state’s efforts to vaccinate people were at 3.1 million doses administered. 1.7 million people have started the vaccination series. 1.5 million people in our state are now fully vaccinated. We should point out over 4.6 million people live in Louisiana and if you still need to find out where and how to get a vaccine, take out your cell phone, open up the camera and pointed out that Q. R. Code a link is gonna pop up and it’s going to take you straight to a guide that we have for you on W. D. S. U. Dot com. Still to come the highest court in the land says schools cannot punish your kid for comments made off campus. We’re gonna tell you what this means for free speech. And the fee to fly is going up for one airline. How much you could have to fork up the next time you need to hit this guy, How’s it gonna break? Let’s go ahead and give you a live look at traffic this Wednesday afternoon. You’re watching WGN News at four. We’ll be back in a ruling today, some say brings the Supreme Court into the internet age. The justices ruled, students have the First Amendment right in many cases to say and post online without worrying about punishment from school leaders. J Great tells us exactly what this means for free. Since in an 81 decision, the Supreme Court ruled the nation’s 50 million or more public school students can’t be punished for much of what they say or post online off campus. The case centering around Brandy Levy, who was 1/9 grade junior varsity cheerleader at a pennsylvania high school when she posted a profanity laced message on Snapchat. After learning, she didn’t make the varsity squad after a coach was alerted to the post levy was suspended from the JV team for her entire sophomore year. She and her parents suit the federal appeals court. Initially ruling since her message was posted off campus, it was outside the authority of school officials. So the justices here just set out some general goal posts on which they could go ahead and agree and then said, look, this student was just talking off campus about the cheerleading squad without threatening anyone on her own time, talking to her own social circle that’s not close enough to the interests of the school to permit her to be punished. The ruling does not protect all off campus expression, disruptive, harmful or bullying speech can still be punished by schools. But the justices did seem to broaden First amendment protections with students now spending extended time communicating through social media and text messages, jay gray, NBC News, all new today at 41 area in retail never took a hit during the pandemic. We’re talking about gun sales. In fact, numbers keep on going up since the pandemic started. And there are two groups helping out with this black gun owners and women. That’s according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, The number of black buyers went up 58% last year, compared to 2019. That’s more than any other group. I feel like in this country, in this climate, if you don’t know how to take care of yourself, you had a disadvantage. I’m talking to black doctors, nurses, lawyers, biochemists from every walk of life in the african american community and they’re saying, hey Phil, we had conversations about getting a gun tonight perception when it comes to black people and guns. The gun owners say they’re worried about rising crime, just like everybody else and should be able to exercise their Second Amendment rights. Also, all new at 4/11 billion dollars. That’s how much money was raped in across the United States during amazon’s 48 hour, prime Day, adobe analytics says overall e commerce transactions were up more than 6% compared to last year and slightly more than cyber monday, which was the busiest digital sales day on record. However, prime day was a 48 hour event rather than the 24 hours cyber monday splurge after thanksgiving amazon, we should point out has never disclosed total prime day sales figures. Frontier Airlines has started adding a small fee for covid safety concerns. The airline well known for having low ticket cost but a lot of add on fees has started attacking on a covid safety fee. Frontier says the $1.59 per ticket. Covid recovery fee is to offset costs like increased sanitation and cleaning on its planes as well as personal protective equipment for employees. The move comes as the airline has stopped taking temperatures for passengers and crew members. The airline says it ended that practice on June 14, citing the CDC guidelines and falling infection rates. All right, let’s head to new york where U. S. Stocks finished mixed today. But the NASDAQ composite hit another all time record high exceeding yesterday’s record close. So here’s a look at the big board. The Dow Jones down 71 points. The NASDAQ up 18 points and the s. p 500 down four points Time. Now for 47. Let’s give you a live look outside on what’s been a wet Wednesday.
