    "New Orleans has issued a boil-water alert for the east bank.

    After a small fire Sunday at the power plant run by the New Orleans Sewerage & Water Board, pressure in the city's water pipes dropped to potentially dangerous levels, and city officials said east bank residents would have to boil tap water for at least 24 hours.

    As of just before 8 a.m. on Monday, the city's official emergency feed on Twitter said the boil-water alert was still in place, adding, "We will pass on any updates."

    That means residents for now will have to continue boiling water before drinking, brushing their teeth or preparing food. And businesses and schools across the city will either have to close or finds ways around tap water.

    The S&WB did say it was safe to clean, do laundry and run a dishwasher, as long as it has a sanitizing cycle. Healthy people also can bathe, although they should try to keep their mouths and eyes closed as precautions. People with wounds or compromised immune systems should continue to avoid tap water."

    Does anyone know if the Lakefront Arena or Howard's hotel are on the east bank?

    This can't be right. Unless you're using a 200 gallon tank you wouldn't have any water left after boiling it for 24 hours.

    It's the government. You expect them to make sense. Maxine Waters just said that our economy is going to lose 170 million jobs this month. They have no idea how to run anything besides their own mouths.

    I feel bad for the folks affected but LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea of Howard being in the area and only hearing of this water-advisory.

    You know he's freaked out about it.

    It's what he'll talk about when he gets back.

    "...would have to boil tap water for at least 24 hours."

    You read it wrong silly. That just means people should continue to boil water throughout the day, not to boil water nonstop for 24 hours.

    Well at my local park we have these green stations with poop bags for the dogs and the label on the box says "pet waste", now believe it or not people always try to shove their bags of shit in the little slot were the bags come out.

    The trash bin is 10 feet away but these idiots are only doing what they are told.:facepalm:

    The good news for Maxine Waters is that no one in her district has ever had a job so they aren't worried about losing shit.

    does HS think that beth's body does not produce shit or is it just that it backs up and never comes out?

    she's never had an illness or eaten anything that caused diarrhea in the 14 years they've been together? when they don't prepare their own food?

    at least when you cook your own food you know you don't have ecoli hands and that you're using clean utensils.

    I hope Howard has to wash his wig and brush his teeth with radioactive water.

    Yes basically all of New Orleans is on the east bank. Only a small part is on the West Bank.
