...Neighborhoods across New Orleans were inundated with floodwaters Wednesday morning, with more than 7 inches of rain falling in some areas ahead of the storm forecasters now predict will become Hurricane Barry by the end of the week.

In addition to the torrential rains, which left residents stranded or forced to rely on boats to get down flooded streets, the storm also brought lightning and thunder. Power was knocked out to 19,000 Entergy customers and a water spout was spotted over Lake Pontchartrain....

... and the storm is just beginning to get started.
