Jul 10 - Parts of New Orleans Are Flooded. Worse Is on the Way.

There was quite a lot of water in the streets of New Orleans on Wednesday morning, thanks to intense thunderstorms that prompted the National Weather Service to issue a “Flash Flood Emergency” warning. Parts of the city received nearly a foot of rain before noon, turning neighborhoods that rarely flood into canoe routes.



Those scenes offer a preview of what’s to come later in the week, when a tropical depression is projected to turn into Hurricane Barry and make landfall on the Louisiana coast as a Category 1, dropping as much as 2 feet of rain in some parts of the state.

New Orleans has long had a problem with rainfall flooding, since much of the city sits just above sea level, and a good part of it sits below. Enormous pumps were a big part of the city’s $14.6 billion storm protection upgrade after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, and their struggles are a subject of citywide scrutiny every time it rains. Topographically, New Orleans is often likened to a bowl, but it’s more like a waffle, with pockets of low ground that fill up with just a few inches of rain.

A rain forecast like Barry’s is never welcome news in New Orleans. But what makes this storm particularly ominous is that it comes at a time when the Mississippi River in New Orleans is just below flood stage, an unusual and unprecedented development this late in the year. As I wrote in June, the river—swollen by a record year of rainfall in the Midwest—has never been so high, so long. A few feet of rain and a midsized storm surge are projected to bring the river to a height it hasn’t hit in more than 90 years, reaching the top of the levees. Another foot would cause river water to crash into the neighborhoods below. Katrina hit when the river was running at 3 feet; it currently sits at 16 feet.

The levees top out around 20 feet; storm surge on the Mississippi is projected at 20 feet. If the forecast stands, at least some water will overtop the levees along the banks of the river.

aint gonna front. in my almost 28 years this is the first time im kinda scared bout flooding and its because of this river situation.
high river from heavy rainfall up north plus a storm surge from the golf pushing water upriver.
ive been through hurricanes, normal flooding but never this. read some where it could be the first time in modern history this could happen.

its arguably one of the best cities in America.
But besides that, its under sea level but not the whole city slappy.
And how would you feel if you grew up somewhere and a person said your stupid for living there. Not because it was a sh*t whole (Because nola isnt one) but because it floods... youre going to stay you a*s there. if you say youre leaving then your city is probably sh*tty or you truly dont want to be there

Most cities near a water source are at sea level, it's not just new Orleans.

And New Orleans is easily one of the top 10 American cities. I wouldn't live down there but it doesn't make it any less if a great city. Hoping for the best for those down there

I've been to a lot of cities in the US, and I really cant think of 10 other cities that I personally like more than New Orleans. The food, the music, the history, creole women, it all comes together. Granted I've never stayed for an extended period of time, but I never had a bad time down there.

I've actually never been for Mardi Gras but I plan on it

It’s crazy that we’re currently seeing the effects of climate change and still so many people view it as a long-term problem. We’ve been shown graphics of cities that will end up underwater for a minute now. sh*t won’t happen overnight, events like this will occur more and more frequently to the point a retroactive solution will no longer work.
