"The water continues to rise," according to Walter Maestri, director of emergency management for Jefferson Parish.
Maestri told WWL-Radio that parish officials have given engineers the next "three to four hours" to determine the cause of rising water.
Maestri did not specify where water continued to rise.
Asked if it is possible that he and parish consultants will not be able to figure out the cause of the continued flooding, Maestri replied, "Absolutely."
