City says power lost to pumping stations ahead of possible heavy rain...

Orleans Parish School Board is closing schools and its central administrative offices because of diminished pumping capacity on the east bank of New Orleans.

Below is a list of school closures in New Orleans.

(This list will be updated when we receive notification from individual schools.)

The New Orleans Sewerage & Water Board lost service to one of its power turbines, which provides power to a majority of the city’s pumping stations serving the East Bank of New Orleans.

A turbine on Claiborne Ave. caught fire and apparently caused the problem.

As a result, the system’s capacity to drain storm water from the streets is diminished further for the East Bank of New Orleans, west of the Industrial Canal. This does not affect New Orleans East, Lower Ninth Ward and Algiers.
