Anyone being impacted? Madisonville and Robert looks like it could be rough. Luling, Destrehan could get that way quick. Hopefully it stays out the City.

I'm not near NO, Brandon. But in the Lafayette area, I am guesstimating 4+ inches of rain today and it's still coming down very hard. Plenty of lightning too. I'm at +25', so flooding is not an issue for me.

Haven''t been to Robert/Hammond in many years. Used to visit there quite a bit during the holidays back in the day. Miss those times.

Hope it isn't too bad and people stay safe there.

I'm on 1085... We have been hammered


I have about 14 inches before in home. And I built with an extra foot of fill for something like this. I have Soap and Tallow creek next to me and its a 5 ft wide creek. It's now easily 100 ft wide and my entire back yard is under water. I have about 12 inches left before in pool

If u need to know where to go shoot me pm I'm not sleeping tonite

Its really bad.

I would liken it to denham/walker from 2018. We had to have gotten 16 inches in 10 hrs. Wife said it started around noon and when I got home at 5 it simply never let up. I haven't seen rain like this since I was a kid in New Orleans
