Effects on the West Bank of Jefferson and Algiers will entail mostly heavy rain. The National Weather Service is still predicting 4 to 6 inches of rain as well as tides 2 to 3 feet above normal. Due to impact Hurricane Harvey might have on our residents and businesses, the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-West (SLFPA-W) will be required to close the Bayou Segnette Sector Gate in the coming days.
