The damage caused by the recent flooding in Louisiana has been tragic and catastrophic. Only a villain of unparalleled malevolence would deliberately compound the troubles of residents of the Pelican State as they try to salvage and rebuild their homes, businesses, institutions and lives.
And what’s this?
A squirrel is to blame for thousands losing power in the New Orleans area on Thursday morning, according to Entergy New Orleans.
“Crews safely working to restore power ASAP after an animal got into our equipment,” Entergy said in a tweet addressed to the East Carrollton area.
“It was a squirrel,” the company added.
At the height of the outage, about 3,500 customers were without power.
That’s the damage caused today by one squirrel. And they’re just warming up. Once they begin to coordinate their attacks on our critical infrastructure, humans may very well be looking at an extinction level event.
