Quote: I have read reports today that even 6 inches of rain could severely stress the repairs to the levees. Having lived through the tropical storm area of 5 hurricanes, 6 inches of rain is a joke, especially if it is already raining there now.
According to the local news media in Baton Rouge, the report is that the levees can withstand a 10 ft. storm surge in New Orleans, but only 5 ft in Plaquemines Parish. Obviously, the further east this storm tracks, the more likely those numbers will be exceeded.
