Airport closes as Katrina hits

By Administrator |

All commercial flights at New Orleans Louis Armstrong International Airport ceased on November 28 and the airport remains closed following the arrival of Hurricane Katrina yesterday. Airport management says it has no idea when the

airport will open at present because of power cuts throughout the region.
At least 50 people were killed in one county alone and many more victims are expected to be found as the hurricane moved away from the Louisiana city of New Orleans yesterday. Katrina is one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the US in recent years, having caused damage estimated at up to $25bn.
