New Or­leans spared

Las Vegas Review-Journal (Sunday) - - NATION -

The cen­ter of the storm passed to the east of New Or­leans, spar­ing the city its most fe­ro­cious winds and storm surge. And its quick speed less­ened the like­li­hood of pro­longed rain that would tax the city’s weak­ened drainage pump sys­tem.

The city fa­mous for all-night par­ty­ing was placed un­der a cur­few, ef­fec­tive at 7 p.m., but the mayor lifted it when it ap­peared the storm would cause lit­tle prob­lems for the city.
