NEW ORLEANS —

A fast-moving line of intense thunderstorms has flooded streets, damaged houses and business and knocked out power to more than 30,000 people in southeast Louisiana.

No injuries were reported.

The New Orleans suburb if Kenner reported that a possible tornado damaged roofs and buildings and left numerous utility poles leaning. A building under construction was heavily damaged.

The utility corporation Entergy reported more than 32,000 customers without power around midday. Jefferson Parish had about 16,000 of those outages and New Orleans had more than 11,000. The total had been reduced to around 20,000 by mid-afternoon.

By early afternoon, the worst of the storms appeared to have moved out of heavily populated areas and into coastal marshes and waters.
