Water Pours Into New Orleans' Ninth Ward

"Hurricane Rita's steady rains sent water pouring through breaches in a patched levee Friday, cascading into one of the city's lowest-lying neighborhoods in a devastating repeat of New Orleans' flooding nightmare.

"Our worst fears came true," said Maj. Barry Guidry of the Georgia National Guard.

"We have three significant breaches in the levy and the water is rising rapidly," he said. "At daybreak I found substantial breaks and they've grown larger." "
