10 neighbors want funny signs indicating high ground for parking during major rain storms in the Irish Channel, New Orleans.

Fun and whimsical signs in public parking areas, indicating whether or not the space is located on high ground and will not flood during rain storms. There are some streets in New Orleans that flood very easily, making you wish you moved your car to higher ground, before the flood water soaked up your floorboards. These small, public signs could help some of us save our cars and early-morning thunder storm races to prevent car flood damage.

Great idea. In related news - in preparation for Tropical Storm Lee, the NOPD issued the following list of New Orleans streets to avoid. This is where significant flooding has been reported in past storms, and it includes a lot of major streets and intersections... www.abc26.com/weather/wgno-nop...

Last Monday, a week ago, I got up at 5am to move my car into the Coliseum Street Park to keep it from flooding....
