Sunny and Chilly Thursday [ Local Stories]

Mississippi River is at 16.5 feet and rising. It is forecast to crest at 16.9 feet Wednesday, March 4th. Right now there are 19 minor seepage points. Flood stage is 17 feet. The Levees protect the Metro to 20 feet and even higher in some places. The river is forecast to begin falling March 8th. The flow past the Metro is forecast to reach 1.25 million cubic feet per second. Since the River is forecast to fall, the Corps of Engineers is not considering opening the Spillway at this time.

The Pearl River at Bogalusa has crested and is falling. Now at 22.17 feet.

The Pearl River at Pearl River now 18.23 feet and is cresting. It is forecast to begin falling Saturday. Moderate flooding of River Gardens happens at this height, along with homes being threatened at Magnolia Forest. Access roads are also flooded, and it is difficult to see roads.

Wind chills drop into low 30s [ Local Stories]



The Mississippi River is high again. Right now at 16.46 feet. Flood stage is 17 feet, but the Metro is protected up to 20 feet and even higher in a few places. The River is forecast to crest at 16.9 feet March 4th, and then begin to fall March 8th. There are 19 minor seepage points at this time. The Corps of Engineers looks at the flow of water past the Metro. It is forecast to get up to 1.25 million cubic feet per second. When the River reaches that speed, and the forecast is for the river to continue to rise, then the Spillway is opened. At this point, that is not the forecast. Will keep you posted.

Chilly weather forecast for the next couple of days with lows in the low 30s on the Northshore and mid 30s to near 40 South. A little warmer during the day Friday. Highs climb in to the low to mid 60s. Sunny Saturday with highs in the upper 60s, and even warmer Sunday with highs in the low to mid 70s.

A Guide to Dining in the Irish Channel - [Eater New Orleans - All]


BOIL Seafood House on Magazine Street, the main drag of Irish Channel dining | Josh Brasted

The 16 best cafes, po boy shops, and dinner destinations

At one point, New Orleans had the largest Irish population in the South and many of those immigrants settled in the area of New Orleans called the Irish Channel. Generally, the borders of the neighborhood are accepted to be Magazine Street to the north, Jackson Avenue to the east, the Mississippi River to the south, and Toledano Street or Louisiana Avenue to the west.

Today, the area is dotted with top-notch restaurants, bars, and coffee shops, from a fine-dining standout to an innovative breakfast joint to a classic po-boy destination. Here are Eater’s picks for where to dine in the Irish Channel.
