Coastal News Roundup: New Airport, Same Low-Lying Ground
The new Louis Armstrong airport is set to open next year. The $1 billion facility is big, sleek - and only four feet above sea level.
Reporter Jennifer Larino has been covering the new airport for Nola.com/The Times Picayune, and she talked with WWNO’s Tegan Wendland about how prepared it is for the threats of climate change.
