Gov. John Bel Edwards speaks during the Louisiana Resilient Recovery Kickoff Thursday, August 3, 2017, at the LITE Center in Lafayette, La.

On Monday afternoon Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards will tour several New Orleans areas damaged Saturday by flash flooding.

Edwards' tour will begin around 3 p.m. in Treme. He'll also visit parts of Lakeview. Planned stops include Willie Mae's, Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club, Broad Theater and Mondo.

Meteorologists, the Sewerage & Water Board and city of New Orleans officials reported estimates of between 1 and nearly 10 inches of rainfall over a few hours in many places Saturday.

City officials said some neighborhoods saw rainfall amounts equaling a so-called 100-year event, or one with only a 1 percent chance of occurring in any year.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu was attending a conference on security in Aspen, Colorado, during the flood. His staff said he closely monitored the situation while he was away.

It was the second time in 15 days that a major storm had caused flood water to inundate some city streets. The July 22 storm saw minimal damage, however; Saturday's was much worse — and for some residents, much more frightening.
