People are still trapped in their attics in remote places where alligators and downed power lines threaten a safe escape along the Gulf coast with storm-ravaged homes and flooded streets. Overnight, the entire city of New Orleans lost power. Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) told President Biden Thursday that power was out to almost two million Louisiana customers.
