Transcript for Tropical Storm Harvey makes landfall in Louisiana
Harvey just making landfall once again this morning in southern Louisiana where there are now flash flood warnings and ABC's Steve osunsami is right there in the eye of the storm in lake Charles with the latest on all of that. Good morning, Steve. Reporter: Good morning to you, Amy. The eye of the storm is sitting right on top of us right now. Behind me is a very swollen lake Charles, in front of me is the sad scene playing out so tiffing center where there are many families who are sleeping who had to be rescued it their flooded homes. It will still dump inches over parts of the country where it's already sat rayed like a cup filled with water. You add one more drop and it spis over. Those flash flood warnings are up and, remember, of course, Amy, this storm was here on Monday. And, Steve, I want to talk a little about what's going on in New Orleans because you've been reporting all week long that many of the pumps that that city depends on are not working. Is that still the case? Reporter: Yes, it's a source of frustration for many residents in New Orleans. The city tells us that about a dozen of their pumps are not working. The repairs on those pumps are ongoing this morning. They're looking at this right now. They're also working to clear their drains. They have thousands, I repeat, thousands of drains that are clogged in the city that they need to clear to allow this rain to drain away. All right, Steve osunsami, we appreciate an update from Louisiana. Thank you.
