You'd think that they'd have a wiring shunt available to hook up one of those big 18-wheeler sized mobile diesel generator rigs, huh? Silly me - of course they don't have alternate power source plans - it's New Orleans.
I'm surprised the city didn't put the bite on FedGov for new turbine-powered generators in 2006 or so.

As I recall the same five ancient turbines were to have been replaced after Katrina, and at least one severe flood before and one after.
However that would take away the mayor’s favorite whipping boy to scrounge for federal dollars.
They may never get replaced at this rate.
