“Arabi/W. Chalmette is without power- I just ran over a power line. Some kind of wind source just tore down Aycock Street from Judge Perez all the way down to Saint Claude… If I had left five minutes earlier I would’ve been right in the middle of it,” he wrote. “Down trees all over Judge Perez, I’m still trying to see if I can get through it to work I had to go around already.”
The National Weather Service reported the tornado moved through a portion of St. Bernard Parish and neighboring Orleans Parish. WDSU said the twister had moved through the Lower Ninth Ward.
