Surging Surf From Cristobal Causes Overflow of Lake Pontchartrain

Rain and wind from Tropical Depression Cristobal produced swells in Lake Pontchartrain, causing water to overflow and flood parts of Mandeville, Louisiana, on June 7 and 8, reports said.

The storm caused water levels to “rise up to 6.2 feet above normal tide level” in parts of Louisiana on June 7, the Weather Channel reported.

Mandeville Fire/EMS said they rescued 10 people from Fontainebleau State Park and park employees evacuated 19 people from cabins on Monday.
