Flood hits New Orleans ahead of storm

Terrian Jones reacts as she feels something moving in the water at her feet as she carries Drew and Chance Furlough to their mother on Belfast Street in New Orleans during flooding from a storm in the Gulf of Mexico that dumped heavy rains Wednesday. Tropical Storm Barry is expected to form in the Gulf of Mexico and strengthen to a hurricane by Saturday according to the US National Hurricane Center.
