New Orleans' City Council has set a special meeting for 1 p.m. Tuesday to seek responses from the Mayor’s Office, the Sewerage & Water Board and others after Saturday's flash flooding in the city.

"We have to have the data. We have to have the questions answered as to what's going wrong, if anything,” said Jared Brossett, who represents Gentilly-based District D, much of which was hard hit Saturday.
Despite repeated assurances from administration officials, Council members said they want to see proof that the elaborate drainage system intended to keep the New Orleans dry was functioning properly.
