New Orleans Floods Again

The 9th street levee has broken again.

A spokeswoman for Mayor Ray Nagin said officials believed the neighborhood had been cleared of residents. But throughout Friday, water began rising again onto what remained — buckled homes, piles of rubble and mud-caked cars that Katrina had covered with up to 20 feet of water.

Refugees from the Lower Ninth Ward were housed at the Progressive Baptist church in Lafayette. They were watching the TV news as the canal levee was breached again, flooding their neighborhood anew.

"It's like looking at a murder," Quentrell Jefferson said. "The first
time is bad. After that, you numb up."

On the upside, Rita has been downgraded to a category 3.
