TV station: One levee break still pouring water in
Even as pumps begin pushing floodwaters out of New Orleans, water is still coming in through a break in a key levee.
A break in the floodwall on the London Avenue Canal remains open, pouring water from Lake Ponchartrain into the flooded city.
Engineers patched the breach in the 17th Street Canal last weekend. The Industrial Canal is almost fully patched. Frank Vojkovich (VOY'-kuh-vich), a civil engineer at the Army Corps of Engineers, says the London Avenue break should be closed by tomorrow.
The Corps says workers are facing a new hazard at London Avenue: wild dogs at the work site.
