Weather Service checking possible tornadoes in Terrebonne
NEW ORLEANS - High winds - possibly tornadoes - overturned boats in Bayou Dularge and did some damage in other parts of Terrebonne Parish.
National Weather Service meteorologist Fred Zeigler said a team was in Terrebonne Parish on Monday to assess whether straight winds or a tornado did the damage Sunday night.
Terrebonne Parish emergency director Earl Eues Jr. says damage was "very minimal." He says about four fishing boats were flipped, a trailer camper was pushed into the marsh in Cocodrie (KOH-koh-dree), and water got into a couple of homes and businesses.
He says streets flooded parish-wide under up to 11 inches of rain, with drainage hampered because a week of southeastern winds had pushed water into the bayous.
