Some Localized Street Flooding and Power Outages

Tuesday, November 10, 2009 - 9:07am

As of 8:00 am this morning, Mayor Ben Morris reported that the effects of Tropical Storm Ida were minimal and the City of Slidell fared well.

Some power failures occurred last night but were quickly restored.

As expected, there is localized street flooding in several low-lying areas, including the Palm Lake subdivision. At this time, there are no reports of flooded homes. Winds are shifting to the NW and should move the water out of the city this morning.
