Everywhere there’s blue after Hurricane Ida


If there are no wreckage from Hurricane Ida in your area, you are blessed. A short drive in any direction reveals broken trees, broken houses and row upon row of debris along the way. And over Terrebonne and Lafourche, a patchwork of blue sails.

As soon as Ida’s winds allowed, the victims began covering damaged roofs with blue. Tarpaulins of other colors too, but blue predominates.

“Best friend:” So begins a recent email that sounds too good to be true. “You have been compensated with the sum of 4.4 million dollars in this united nation, the payment will be issued in an ATM visa card and sent to you from the Santander bank of Spain.
