Water pipe bursts, covers Carrolton streets with water

Street flooding in New Orleans' Carrolton neighborhood has left cars and homes surrounded by water. 

Residents say city workers tell them a 16" water pipe broke on Cohn Street near Carrolton.  Several inches of water then spread across a few blocks in the area.'

Crews are working to shut off the water flow and repair the break.

The Sewerage and Water Board reports that low water pressure may persist in the area until they make repairs.
