New Orleans Residents Fill Hundreds of Sandbags Ahead of Tropical Storm Barry
Residents of New Orleans, Louisiana, prepared on Friday, July 12, for approaching Tropical Storm Barry, which was expected to hit central Louisiana’s coast on Saturday, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said. As of the afternoon of July 11, Tropical Storm Barry was moving west northwest at 5 mph with maximum winds of 65 mph, according to the NHC. This video shows members of CrossFit Algiers, a gym on New Orleans’s west bank, shoveling sand into bags ahead of the storm. “While you were sleeping, CrossFit Algiers athletes filled more than 300 sandbags at 5 am to help our community,” the video caption said. Sandbags were distributed free to residents at numerous community centers, fire stations, and public works buildings Thursday and Friday to help mitigate possible flood damage.
