New Orleans Dries Out After Torrential Rain



  Info

Description

(7 Aug 2017) New Orleans is drying out after torrential rains flooded parts of the city for the second time in two weeks. Parts of the city also flooded two weeks ago, but the July 22 rain caused mostly street flooding.Still, this is far from the first time heavy rains have flooded the city, hurricane season or not.Several businesses were among the flooded and remained closed Monday.Workers were sweeping floodwater doused with bleach out of the LaLa hair salon in the Mid-City neighborhood as furniture and salon items dried on the sidewalk.Longtime client Awa Oney said her friend's salon, which specializes in African hair braiding, had not flooded in the seven years it's been at that location – until the past few weeks, when it has flooded twice.Also recovering from the two recent floods is the Broad Theater, a four-screen movie theater built in 1932.In May 1995, floods did more than $3 billion in damage and killed six people in the New Orleans metro area. "The May 1995 event affected a much larger area and lasted longer," Danielle Manning, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said Monday.The city just got more rain at once than the drainage system is designed for officials said Monday. The system's 24 pumps can move out an inch 1 (2.5 centimeters) of rain in the first hour and one-half-inch (1.3 centimeters) each hour after that - the same figures board spokesmen have been providing for decades.One pumping station got 9.4 inches (23.8 centimeters) in three hours Saturday, officials said.You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/you...
