When the state of New Orleans gets hit with a storm

New Orleans is being hit with what is being described as a Category 4 storm, the third major hurricane to hit the state since the end of the winter.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has issued a Category 3 storm warning for New Orleans and New York, and Hurricane Matthew is currently a Category 2 storm.

“A significant and possibly catastrophic event is underway with winds of 50 to 70 mph, with a minimum sustained wind of 65 kph, and sustained gusts of 40 to 50 kph,” the NHC said in its most recent update on Matthew.

“A series of damaging winds are expected to cause life-threatening flooding in New Orleans, with isolated areas being at risk of catastrophic storm-related damage.”

“A major storm surge and coastal flooding is possible inland of the city,” it said.

“There is a high likelihood that a large area of coastal New Orleans could be inundated with seawater.”

Hurricane Matthew’s winds are currently at least 30 kilometres per hour, according to the National Hurricane Centre.

“The most immediate concern is the possibility of severe flooding with sustained gust of up to 60 kph.”

The NHC warned that Matthew would hit the southern half of New England on Saturday, bringing heavy rains, flash flooding and flash hail.

“It’s a very large storm with a high probability of intensifying into a major hurricane,” it warned.

“Matthew is forecast to track north of the eastern seaboard of the United States, potentially making landfall in New York state on Sunday.”

“As of 1:00pm on Saturday morning, the NWS is issuing severe storm warnings in New England, with winds gusts to 50 mph.

These severe warnings are in place to help ensure the protection of residents and businesses in areas impacted by this storm,” it added.”

These severe warnings continue until approximately 3:00am on Sunday morning, when a system may develop into a tropical storm.”

If this system does develop into an Atlantic hurricane, Matthew will become a major threat in New Jersey, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, with maximum sustained winds of 100 kph.

How to buy a new or even a used car: New Orleans newspaper

“It was just like a big rush,” she said.

“They were just running through the mall and I’m like, ‘Hey, man, I don’t even know what to do with this car.'”

The dealership was quick to reply that she could return the car to her previous owner.

“I was like, okay, I have a new car,” she recalled.

The car was a red convertible that had been repainted in a new paint scheme, a black interior with white stitching, and blacked out windows.

But her new owner was unaware of this until he called her on the phone.

“He told me to get it out and it’s got the new color,” she told Next Big Futures.

“So, I got it and it was like a different car.

I’ve got it right now.

It’s pretty much a new vehicle.

It was like I just gave it to someone else.

I didn’t give it to my parents.”

The new owner bought the car on March 15th for $17,200.

But the dealership was only offering $17.50, which was not enough to cover the cost of repainting the car, which included painting the windows, a new interior, and a new roof. 

After the repain was done, the new owner paid the $17 price and returned the car back to the dealership.

The dealership was furious and demanded the car returned for the full $17 they had spent on the repaint.

“They had no idea what they were getting into, but they were not happy,” the newowner said.

She eventually received her car back and the dealership paid the full price of $18,800.

“And it was a total shock to them, so I don�t know how I felt,” she added. 

“I was scared that if they had bought the other car I wouldn’t be able to get the car out, because I have to get a new one.”

After repainning the car in the new paint, the dealership said the car was “ready for sale,” but when Next Big News asked them what the reason for this was, the repainted car was returned to the same person who bought it.

“My next question was, ‘Why did you do that?’

And the guy was like ‘Oh, I just wanted to get rid of it.’

I was like what?

No, this is not a good idea.

I don`t want it back.”

The dealership did not respond to Next Big Magazine’s request for comment.
