Tropical Storm Lee Floods Streets, Cuts Power

New Orleans, LA – Tropical Storm Lee remains poorly formed and moving only a few miles an hour, lashing bands of heavy rain and wind one minute, a light drizzle the next. Some city streets are flooded. No vessels are moving in the port of New Orleans. The airport remains open but flights are being canceled. The storm is poorly formed, but forecasters predict the center will head east toward New Orleans, bypassing much of bone-dry Texas. Tropical storm warnings are in effect from Texas to Mississippi.
