This iReport is part of an assignment:
New Orleans streets flood
These photos were taken around 10:30 this morning right after several inches of rain caused heavy street flooding in New Orleans. The storm passed through about a half hour before I took the photos bringing with it heavy rain and continuous lightning. The flooding caused police to shut down manly of the streets in the downtown area. The one I drove down had almost a two feet of water in places. The police told me one of the pump stations on Broad street
had been inundated.
