Flooding Along New Orleans Lakefront as Hurricane Sally Strengthens to the East

There was flooding along Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans on September 15, as the city felt the effects of Hurricane Sally, if not its full force.

The National Weather Service in the city described “minor flooding” as areas to the east were braced for severe impacts.

Louisiana Gov John Bel Edwards wrote on Twitter that Louisiana would “be spared the worst” of Hurricane Sally but said residents must a “game plan in place” for the rest of hurricane season.

The National Hurricane Center warned the storm was likely to cause “historic life-threatening flooding” along the northern Gulf Coast. Credit: @darkskinnjamaine via Storyful
