The water appears to be pouring into the Ninth Ward. The loose barge has been tied down so it's no longer a threat, but now there are a couple of boats missing.
CNN is a reporting a possible breach in one of the levees.

New storm has developed and look where it's headed:
It never stops.
Yeah, I actually watched that movie for the first time about a month ago
The meteorologist on Fox just said she expects Tropical Depression #9 to develop into a Cat. 2 or possible 3 by the weekend.
Hanna has developed into a Cat. 1 Hurricane as it aims for the Georgia/South Carolina border.

Actually, I think what almost hit him was this guy.Didn't Cooper almost get hit by a sign during Katrina? I was discussing that with a coworker - probably about the same time that happened.
Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.
I'm pretty sure the reports of breaches were wrong.
I saw a report from a local source that said on Baton Rouge station should some footage of Katrina ... and national media missed the fact that is was Katrina, not Gustav
Jeff Parish President it set to announce his plans for allowing people back in tonight at 7pm. They think we might be going home on Wednesday. Tho, I'm thinking that might be optimistic. Unless power is restored to most of the area tonight.
yeah, I just heard that. The Plaquemines Parish president just placed an urgent call to WWL radio to get people out ... any that stayed behind.
This kind of thing happens "after" the storm passes.
Here's an article on it... hopefully not too many people stayed behind in that area.

St. Bernard Parish firefighters and sheriff's deputies are rolling to a levee overtopping in Braithwaite in Plaquemines Parish. Plaquemines Parish workers have been trying to bolster the levee along the Clearwater Canal that is being overtopped by floodwaters that threaten the Braithwaite Park subdivision.
Plaquemines Parish workers have been furiously working on the levee since mid afternoon. The levee has nbot breached, but authorities are not hopeful.
"We don't think our efforts are going to be successful so we need to get everyone out now,'' Parish President Billy Nungesser said.
Meanwhile, St. Bernard Parish is sending firefighters, deputies and other workers to the area to help with the efforts.
The canal is on the east bank of the parish. The subdivision is located off Louisiana 39.
Officials said the same levee is also being overtopped further south at Scarsdale.
