Re: 92L (Potential Barry) Forecast Lounge

I'm in New Orleans we received 8 inches of rain in less than 3 hours this morning. The entire city flooded. Still areas with standing water. Pumps are working but now will only be at half capacity for the weekend due to the deluge. On top of this possible event, NHS is predicting the MS river cresting for 6 to 8 hours. Flood stage is 20 feet. We opened the Bonne Carrie spill way twice this year(never been done). Levees are taxed. I don't even want to think what would happen if this ended up being a cat 2 or 3 would do to that crest
