Donna Solli says she rode out the storm on Staten Island to stay with her dog. She is hungry, cold and worried -- like millions of others who are still in the dark.
Officials are reporting "overtopping of a levee on the east bank" from Braithwaite to White Ditch, which will "result in significant deep flooding in the area," the National Weather Service said early Wednesday. Plaquemines Parish president Bill Nungesser tells CNN, "...not only did we see the worst case scenario, it got worse than that with the storm stalling. The levees can only take so much."
The levee in question is operated by the parish and not the federal government.
