11/16- Beyond the Flood

What lessons did residents and state officials learn from this historic event and what challenges remain?

The August floodwaters that inundated South Louisiana have receded and the recovery continues. What lessons did residents and state officials learn from this historic event and what challenges remain? What federal aid is still available for homeowners and renters and how should the state disburse it? How can the state help to ensure that poor and affluent neighborhoods recover equally? What impact should the floods have on building standards, mitigation and prevention? And could jumpstarting stalled diversion projects prevent a similar disaster in the future? WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2016

Our Panelists:

We want to know your opinion! Leave your comments in the box below.


They are completely avoiding the topic of how to avoid flood in the future,
such as removing the I-12 barrier, and finishing the Comite diversion project. 
Very disappointing.

Current Topic


     10/17 - HIV/AIDS in Louisiana

How many people are living with HIV/AIDS in Louisiana and what resources are available to them?
Baton Rouge and New Orleans consistently rank among the top three cities nationwide for the highest HIV and AIDS rates per capita. And in rural Louisiana, the number of new HIV infections has risen slightly with infected individuals more likely to escalate to an AIDS diagnosis.

So, how many people are living with HIV/AIDS in Louisiana and what resources are available to them? Why has the state seen an overall decline in new HIV diagnosis but an increase in its rural areas? Is there sufficient access to treatment in Louisiana? And what role does stigma play in the spread of the virus? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “HIV/AIDS in Louisiana” Wednesday, October 25 at 7 p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, October 24.)
