New Orleans’ Ninth Ward survives new flooding

The Lower Ninth Ward saw renewed flooding Monday when a high tide pushed water up through drainage systems.

According to an Army Corps of Engineers spokesperson two additional pumps were turned on to remove the two feet of water.

WDSU-TV, an NBC affiliate, reported that strong north winds were helping to push the water into these areas but that it was not expected to get worse.

The Ninth Ward, a low-income part of the city, lies about five feet below sea level and saw extensive flooding during Hurricane Katrina, NBC reports.
