Heavy rain continue across the south

Friday moring rainfall continues to plague areas like New Orleans.

Monsoonal rain continues across the south and places like New Orleans are under water. Since the city sits in the delta of the Mississippi River and below sea level there are already inherent problems with water removal during heavy rain.

This week was complicated by the fact that the city underestimated the impact of rainfall and the pumps malfunctioned causing the city to be under water.

The threat of heavy rainfall continues for the area through today and the weekend, in fact, city leaders have declared a State of Emergency for the area.
