Question about Arrival in NOLA

Recommended Posts

My mom is returning to NOLA on the Glory tomorrow (4/18/19). I'm very concerned about the weather there tomorrow morning. I'm wondering if the Glory will even be able to transit the Mississippi. My question is, would the ship possibly steam and return early, or will it wait until it's safe to make the transit and dock (even if that isn't until tomorrow evening)? I'm worried about their arrival, because 1.) It's my 70 yr old mom and my aunt, and 2.) They are supposed to drive straight back to Texas so that my mom can stay with my kids while my wife and I leave out of Galveston on the Freedom on Saturday. 


Any info on how NOLA arrivals are handled, would be greatly appreciated.

 Just checked the forecast and they are saying rain won't hit until late morning or even noon. I've seen enough storms there and this should not be an issue for those coming or going.

Arrival should be no problem.


The weather expected to arrive in NO this afternoon is coming from the west, so your aunt needs to be prepared for this since she will be headed in that direction.
