Crews have been sandbagging and hope this will prevent the levee from overtopping anymore. The levee is protecting 125-200 homes.
This isn't the only levee that's had problems in New Orleans. The Industrial canals were close to the danger zone Monday. Water there rose to within a foot of the top and winds whipped the water right over the top. At last check, the water is going down there and the levees seem to be holding.
