Flooding on Tulane Ave at the hospitals

A spokesman for Acadiana Ambulance (the guys who brought you civilian medical airlift) stated there was 10 feet of water at "the hospitals". I presume he meant the Tulane/Charity complex downtown, although the old Mercy hospital area is also very flood prone.

He also reported that people were taking shelter in the hospitals, and that they were having issues keeping order. He didn't have any more specific information.

If there is 10 feet of water at the foot of Tulane, there must almost certainly be water in the CBD and possibly the Quarter.
