People, cars stranded in New Orleans due to floods
That widespread flooding in New Orleans today made it difficult to get around the Big Easy.
The French Quarter, an area normally crowded with people, is now filled with water and Canal Street looks like an actual canal.
Today’s heavy rain is just the beginning as a tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico churns closer to the Coast.
With no end in sight for the rain, residents and visitors are wondering how they’re going to get around. “We’re just completely stranded here. I mean, we came down here and this all happened within a matter of hours and now no one can get anywhere. They’ve shut down all public transportation. There’s just disabled cars all over the road. It’s like a hurricane. It’s actually just like a hurricane.”
