Tropical Storm Expected To Drench Region Through Labor Day
By Eileen Fleming
New Orleans, LA – Tropical storms are forecast to drench the New Orleans region throughout Labor Day weekend. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu is allowing residents to park on neutral ground. Police are asking people living near more than 30 intersections where significant flooding has occurred in past storms to stay at home unless there's an emergency. The approaching storm is unpredictable in its formations and is expected to move slowly though the region. The city is coordinating with tourism officials to ensure visitors' safety. Construction projects will be shut down if sustained winds reach 25 miles an hour. Landrieu is advising residents to stock up food, water and medicine.
