    Default Bad Weather

    Twisters Compound Damage in New Orleans

    KENNER, La. (AP) -- Tornadoes tore through New Orleans neighborhoods Thursday that had been hit hard by Hurricane Katrina just five months earlier, collapsing at least one previously damaged house and battering the airport, authorities said.

    That same line of storms is moving through here. Almost a foot of rain in some spots since this morning and weve had a roof colapse on a shopping center with multiple injuries.

    Well, Im still here and so is my car. But sometime in the last 8 hours, the street in front of my house has turned into a river and I have almost a foot of water in my backyard.

    Estimates now are 15 inches of rain since 0700 this morning. Building roofs have caved in, roads are flooded, people are being evacuated by boat and the National Guard is on the way.

    Not a good way to start the weekend.
