Reminder ahead of tropical weather: Don’t drive around flood barriers

The New Orleans Metro area is expecting to see potential flooding the rest of this week as Tropical Depression Nicholas brings heavy rain to the area.

The City of New Orleans reminds residents if barricades are up, that means it is dangerous to drive through any high water on the road.

Vehicles could stall or become stranded.

The city reminds people to turn around and find an alternate route to their destination.
