See this Flickr Set of Photos taken by Tim Garrett on July 20th, 2012.
This is a before set of photos. Rain fell at a rate of 1 - 3 inches per hour for hours.
We were lucky and most of the rain fell in the French Quarter and Bywater, Mid City and Chalmette
We'll put up another set of photos after another sure to come rainstorm
in a few years when the SELA Projects which will funnel more water into both the Palmetto Canal and the Monticello Canal at faster rates are completed.
