Tornadoes, Severe Storms Rip Through New Orleans, Damaging H
Tornadoes, Severe Storms Rip Through New Orleans, Damaging Homes

Louisiana residents were picking through the wreckage Wednesday after at least seven tornadoes tore through New Orleans and its vicinity prompting the governor to declare a state of emergency and send out the National Guard.

No deaths were reported in the wake of Tuesday's devastation, but at least 25 people were treated for mostly minor injuries in area hospitals, including a woman eight months pregnant whose home caved in on her and her two children, officials said. She was listed as stable, and her kids were unharmed.

Meanwhile, Gov. John Bel Edwards dispatched the Guard to help state and local police patrol the hardest-hit areas and prevent looting.

Eastern New Orleans suffered the heaviest damage as a tornado ran along the ground for about two miles while covering about a half-mile wide area, said New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu. The neighborhood is located in the Ninth Ward, which was pummeled by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

"I am heartbroken to once again see Louisiana families suffering in the wake of devastating tornadoes today," Edwards said in a statement. "We are working tirelessly to ensure that every citizen affected by this storm receives the resources they need as quickly as possible."
