Lower Ninth is draining, not flooding further

Cable news continues to report that NOLA is flooding through two breaches in the levee system. They all need to look closely at the NBC footage of the Holy Cross/Lower Ninth floodwall breech. Water is clearly flowing out of of the breech and back into the Inner Basin of the Industrial Canal.

Thanks to Tommy M for correcting my Bywater/Holy Cross mix up. The video is of the east side of the Inner Basin. He notes that there must be a west side breach flooding the Bywater area. I have not see this in the aerials.
