Emergency Management Officials in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana -- just south of New Orleans -- reports a levee has been overtopped on the East Back of the Mississippi River from Braithwaite to White Ditch.
The National Weather Service is Slidell says this will result in deep flooding in these areas south of New Orleans, and evacuations of the area are under way.
Some of the levees are up to fourteen feet tall, which means the storm surge has grown higher than that in these areas.
