Where We Stand

It is ALL about the Industrial Canal. There is "tidal sloshing" that is sending waves of water over the walls of the canal, particularly on the West side of the canal into the Upper Ninth Ward and now also into the Lower Ninth Ward.

There are some loose vessels in the Industrial Canal, which will most certainly be the subject of a criminal investigation. One barge is hitting against the canal wall. Divers have been deployed to assess the situation.

I've been watching the WWL live feed, checking out NOLA.com, and this aggregate of live local coverage.

We probably have around six more hours before the threat against the Industrial Canal levee subsides.
