timeline for June 10th climate rain

I was awoken around 7:15, it was loud. sound can predict rain intensity. I don't think i thought that must, this was more an emotional reaction.

At 7:28, NOLA Ready posted to move your car. "Street Flood Advisory in Effect. Move Vehicles to neutral grounds and sidewalks but don't block intersections and bike paths"

I checked what was going on here

half an inch of rain fell in 5 minutes in Gentilly at 7:15 this morning, then it happened again before 8 o clock. Climate by Exxon.

The Rain is over, but if you live near a pump, flood waters may still rise! document how long it takes your street to drain on https://www.iseechange.org/

at 9:24AM, CMAS alerts us to flash flooding in Orleans Parish : NWS: FLASH FLOOD WARNING this area til 10:45 AM CDT. Avoid flooded areas

June 10 at 9:32 AM

Slow no Wake! If you are out driving, consider how your wake may put water into other people's cars, if they are parked on the street. Save your neighbors a trip to the wet vac.

June 10 at 9:40 AM

Although the water had started to drain by 9, by 9:38, with this second, additional shower, the water is back up over my street. even though the big pulse of Climate rain is over, the water will continue to slosh around in the system for a couple of hours. post the flooding duration near you with ISeeChange, and help us learn how the City drains in a Climate Rain

at 10:24 (?) T4 goes down ? the news doesn't say when T4 went down

"Councilman Jared Brossett, pointing to a S&WB policy that generators should be on standby, asked why they hadn't been turned on after a flash flood warning was issued an hour before the turbine shut down."

at 10:45, there was another peak in the flood waters on my street, they started to go down.

at 11:46, NOLA Ready posted: Street Flooding continues in New ORleans. DO not drive through water on the road! Call 911 to report major flooding.Streetwise.nola.gov

at noon, there was another peak in the flood waters on my street

June 10 at 1:44 PM

I feel like i can see the water slosh toward the lake, in the 311 calls, 9:30am vs 1:30pm. my street is still pretty flooded out by uno, but London Ave canal has been moving with swiftness for hours. This is just way too much water for the system.image description

By 3:11, much was clear, aside from Pontillyimage description

Thank you for this narrative of this "climate rain by Exxon" disaster, @eustatic. It sounds like editing and posting may have been tricky -- what happened? Coding is active now on fixing Editor, so now is a great time to be reporting Editing bugs! Sorry for the trouble <3
