Water Cascades Over New Orleans Levee


    Jafferson, LA — Water poured over the patched Industrial Canal Levee area on Friday, cascading into one of the city’s lowest-lying neighborhoods and heightening fears that Hurricane Rita would re-flood this devastated city.

    “Our worst fears came true. The levee will breach if we keep on the path we are on right now, which will fill the area that was flooded earlier,” Barry Guidry with the Georgia National Guard.

    The Army Corps Of Engineers is reporting that the rising waters have caused the levee to break, water is already waist deep in parts of the 9th Ward and additional flooding is expected possibly up to eight feet.
