Since Rita is
movingly slowly and is forecast to slow down further over the next few
days… Rainfall totals of 10 to 15 inches are expected over eastern
Texas and western Louisiana. Maximum rainfall totals in excess of 25
inches may occur over localized areas. Rainfall amounts of 3 to 5
inches with isolated heavier amounts are possible over southeastern
Louisiana including metropolitan New Orleans.

It’s not nearly over yet. Not with huge amounts of rain still to come.
