Episode Narrative Widespread heavy rain fell on saturated ground across areas of southeast Louisiana, primarily to the south and southwest and Lake Pontchartrain. Isolated severe weather also occurred with some of the thunderstorms. The heavy rain and severe weather resulted from a series of upper level disturbances moving across the region in combination with a stationary frontal boundary draped across the area.
Event Narrative Heavy rainfall resulted in widespread street flooding with several roads closed due to high water in the Destrehan, Boutte, and St. Rose areas. In Boutte, 15 homes were flooded and about 100 others were threatened by flood waters.
