Sandbagging Bayou St. John

Posted By on Tue, Dec 15, 2009 at 6:51 PM

As of noon, crews were out sandbagging Bayou St. John on Jefferson Davis Parkway at Lafitte Street in (in front of the Mid-City post office). No street flooding, but the waterline was exactly at the bayou's top and slopping over in some places.

Eric Hartman, who lives at the nearby American Can Co., was out taking photographs as the water lapped over the bayou's banks. "I've lived on the bayou all my life," said Hartman, "and I've never seen it like this."
