Much of the money the state plans to get through the BP oil spill settlement will go toward big construction projects -- building barrier islands and levees.

 

Some of that money is reserved for coastal research projects, and the first projects have been announced.

 

One of the big ways the scientific research gets done on the coast is through specific projects. The state or the feds have money for a project -- like a barrier island -- and they might ask scientists to look into something for them.

You can call this one where’ya drink. And if you're a beer lover in New Orleans, these days the answer is a lot more likely to be this: local.

The names of Louisiana beers now line restaurant menus. Their tap handles sprout from the draft clusters at dives and fancy lounges alike. And these local beers flow from the breweries’ own tap rooms, where they’re available to sip on site, right there at the brewery.

National Weather Service (NWS)

The National Weather Service (NWS) lifted its tropical storm warning the the New Orleans metro area this morning. But Mayor Mitch Landrieu says we could still feel the storm’s effects.

 

“We’re not in the clear yet,” he says.

 

The city is still under a tornado watch until 7pm Wednesday, and the NWS expects three to six inches of additional rain over the next two days.

 

If that rain falls in a very short amount of time, the city could experience localized flooding.
