Heard on local radio from a former N.O. real estage agent.

Apparently 70% of the population of N.O. is black, but most of that is quite affluent.

There are 8 low income housing projects near the downtown center, all with traditionally high crime rates. It sounds like those folks didn't evacuate....


Only routes open into NO are I-10 or HWY 90.
