Several parts of Barataria were flooded out following today's midday thundershower.

CNC3 Digital has been getting several responses to an earlier post with photos, video and information of the places affected and those that were not.

But firstly, the following is the latest update from the Met Office:

"Sunny periods will be interrupted by light to moderate showers in varying localities. There is a 60% chance that one or two of these showers could become heavy and/or thundery in a few confined areas. Tonight there will be patchy cloudiness at times with the odd shower. GUSTY WINDS AND STREET/FLASH FLOODING MAY BE EXPECTED IN HEAVY DOWNPOURS AND/OR THUNDERSHOWERS".
