A search-and-rescue caravan traveling to the Jefferson Parishcommunity was able to arrive by road but 10 to 12 levee breaks on the Gulf of Mexico side of the island left 100% of homes and other structures damaged, with nearly 40% of them totally destroyed or nearly destroyed, parish President Cynthia Lee Sheng told reporters at a news conference.

In addition, the island – located about 111 miles south of New Orleans — was covered with about three feet of sand, Sheng said.

Grand Isle police Chief Scooter Resweber said he and other officers waited out the hurricane inside the town’s police station, according to The Associated Press.

“I had all the police officers move into the building for safety – and then all hell broke loose,” Resweber told the AP.

“Roofs started to come apart. We could see buildings flying into pieces across the street from us. It’s something that you just don’t want to ever see again.”

“Roofs started to come apart. We could see buildings flying into pieces across the street from us. It’s something that you just don’t want to ever see again.”— Chief Scooter Resweber, Grand Isle, Louisiana, police

Even the police station was threatened, he said.

“When the roof started to come apart and the building trembled, we all got scared,” he said. “We’re grown men but you do have fear in you, no matter what job you’re in, and we felt it.”

The chief called it the most severe hurricane he had ever experienced.

“I’ve ridden out other hurricanes – Hurricane Isaac, Katrina, Gustav, Ike – and this is no comparison whatsoever,” he said. “This is the worst. … It’s just amazing that no one (here) was killed or even seriously injured.”

Elsewhere in Jefferson Parish, which lies along the Gulf coast in the New Orleans area, the town of Lafitte had numerous homes flooded with water, but crews were able to rescue 15 people, Sheng said, according to WWL-TV of New Orleans.

Sheng advised anyone who had left the area to not yet return, given the extensive damage.

“These are not conditions to be living in,” Sheng said, according to WWL.

She said drinking water and ice distribution sites were being set up for those residents who stayed in their homes.

Trash pickup would not resume until Monday, largely because of road and traffic-signal conditions, she told reporters.

Widespread destruction

Also Tuesday, Rob Krieger of FOX 8 New Orleans toured Grand Isle and posted video on Facebook that shows the widespread destruction.

“There are zero services on the island right now,” he wrote, “power, water, and cell service are down.”

Krieger also posted video from Slidell, St. Tammany Parish, located on the northeast shore of Lake Pontchartrain, about 32 miles northeast of New Orleans.

The video included a young man ferrying neighbors around with his boat.

“Really great guy doing exactly what you’d expect out of a true Louisianan,” Krieger wrote in his post.

Hurricane Ida struck land Sunday, with winds reaching higher than 170 miles per hour, the AP reported. The total destruction to affected areas was still being assessed Tuesday.

Before the hurricane hit, Sheng had advised Jefferson Parish residents to “leave immediately,” warning that the hurricane was “unsurvivable.”

SAN FRANCISCO: ‘ HIGH WINDS SHUT DOWN CABLE CAR SYSTEM & SMASH CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS ‘

#AceNewsServices  – SAN FRANCISCO:Dec.11- A ferocious storm system pounded Northern California with heavy rain, hurricane-force winds and power outages Thursday, even forcing San Francisco to shut down its famed cable car system.

' Storms Pound California with High Winds '

‘ Storms Pound California with High Winds ‘

High winds sent Christmas decorations smashing to the ground in the city and, in some parts of the Bay area, trees fell, blocking roads and knocking down power lines.

Every 15 minutes or so a National Weather Service warning interrupted radio reports with its klaxon. The message warned residents not to try to drive across flooded roadways with the tag line, “Turn around, don’t drown.”

At least 155,000 Bay Area customers were without power Thursday morning, the Weather Channel reported. In the city, electricity was knocked out from the Marina to the financial district and beyond.

San Francisco’s cable car system was shut down before the storm hit because of concern over the effectiveness of brakes on the aging cars in wet conditions.

Bay Area Rapid Transit closed its Montgomery Station in the city because of flooding. Trains are reportedly running through the station without stopping.

In addition, at least 10 departures of the San Francisco Bay Ferry were canceled due to weather conditions.

Some residents scrambled for flashlights and bottled water while others at lower levels shored up vulnerable homes and businesses with sand bags.

At San Francisco International Airport, 113 outgoing flights and 123 inbound flights were canceled as of late Thursday morning, according to Flightaware.com. Inbound flights were delayed by an average of 3 hours, 40 minutes.

YOUR TAKE: Share your photos of the California storm

The powerful storm system, which is expected to batter California with drenching rain, heavy snow, pounding surf and howling winds through Friday, is fueled by the “Pineapple Express” that is delivering a steady stream of moisture directly from Hawaii to the West Coast.

Winds were howling across a wide swath of Northern California, including winds sustained at 78 mph near Lake Tahoe, which is hurricane force. The highest gust recorded so far was 135 mph recorded near Donner Pass in the Sierra, according to the National Weather Service. Many spots in the mountains were gusting to over 100 mph.

The highest rainfall total by early Thursday was 3.5 inches recorded in Oakmont.

As the storm spreads south, downpours are likely to cause debris slides, especially in areas affected by this year’s intense and widespread wildfires.

As much as 8 inches of rain could fall on coastal mountains over a 24-hour period, the weather service said.

“It’s a short amount of time for that amount of water,” forecaster Diana Henderson said. “We are anticipating some localized flooding, maybe some downed trees and downed power lines. It could have an effect on a wide range of people.”
