Parts of St. Charles’ Elm Point Levee burst
As feared, part of the Elm Point Levee has burst and water is rushing through right now at a rapid pace.
Authorities say that the levee burst in two spots around 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
One of those holes is reportedly the size of a football field.
Several homes and businesses in the area are now flooded.
Officials say that residents in that area voluntarily evacuated before the breach.
