full cost to see if this means it's likely to dump more water than otherwise authorities are warning of potentially deadly flooding across the gulf coast around 50000 people have lost power in the seattle. joining me now from new orleans is due down news correspondent helena humphrey and tell me exactly where you are and what's the situation like around you. hi i'm rita what you can see behind me the mississippi river is currently at a normally high levels fool face time all of the year tropical storm barry is moving in with very high winds of 150 kilometers an hour and when it reaches here it's expected to be a category one hurricane now as much as the winds are a worry of course i think the greatest worry here is the water is expected to dump up to hoth a meter of water here on new orleans over the course of the weekend that would be
4:10 pm
a record not seen in decades and as i mentioned that river the king a rather high at the moment and as such president trump has declared a federal state of emergency across the easy ana and up people coping with the situation there. well here in new orleans it is a flood prone area the ground is already assault and from flooding earlier this week so the sandbags are out in the french quarter many shops are already boarded up of the national guard has deployed over 3000 people to be part of rescue teams with helicopters and rescue boats on standby in louisiana but they certainly will be a test of the flood defenses which will ramped up in the wake of hurricane katrina 14 years ago that such a deadly hurricane of course 8 at the united states now currently i can say that the levees are at 6 meters high and the water coming in when mississippi river
4:11 pm
crest is expected to crest at 5 meters so there's not a great safety margin that said all the floodgates have been closed and the army engineers who have rebuilt those levees in the wake of katrina say they are expecting it to hold that said though in the wake of the culture of katrina i think it's fair to say that there is some public mistrust in authority and some people have simply taken the decision themselves to get out of town and basically had a how confident are people then that the authorities have taken adequate measures not to see a repeat of what happened during a hurricane katrina. well i'm retired i think it's fair to say that people here are used to this routine of hurricanes although they have ramped up likely due to global warming but they know the drill they know to hunker down and get the bottled water and dried food in for example but i think in terms of the loan game there is some criticism that
