We live near here. The waterway that runs perpendicular to the Mississippi River is the Industrial Canal.
I have just heard (on FOX 8 news, of all places) that the surge is overtopping the Industrial Canal levee walls. Evidently it's on the western side, which means folks in the Upper Ninth Ward will be getting water.
Our improved levee on the east side is holding. I think.
I need to be careful not to allow the TV news-folks get me all worked up... Especially since I am on essentially no sleep.
