Levee Breach in Suburban NOLA

If the reports from New Orleans television are true it appears that the levee system is not holding across the New Orleans region. The graphic on the left is from WGNO, which signifies the location along the Mississippi River where the levee breach/overtopping is taking place. It does not look like the city is having any significant issues other than the industrial canal levee being overtaken by surge earlier today.

The best place to get more information on the suburban New Orleans levee breach is to go to this site and watch the online stream from New Orleans television.

I'll post some screen grabs from NOLA TV as I can. Images below copyright by the respective image holder.
