I just called into JetBlue to see what the deal is with their flights in/out of MSY. I was told that the airport is closed to the public until Sept. 8th, and the airport director says it's most likely that it'll be closed for 30 days. I was also told that it has been turned into a refugee camp and medical center.
My deepest thoughts and prayers go out to those who either live in New Orleans or have friends/family there. I have been trying to contact some old friends from there but all lines are jammed. This is a mess.
