Barry Impacts: Sewer Systems Overflow in Alabama; More Flooding in Mississippi and Louisiana

The storm that was once Hurricane Barry continued to add to the woes of an already waterlogged Mississippi and Louisiana on Monday while in Alabama the storm's rains overwhelmed sewer systems.

More than 250,000 gallons of sewage spilled from systems along Alabama's coasts. The Baldwin County Health Department said about 125,000 gallons spilled into D'Olive Creek in Daphne, Alabama. As much as 75,000 gallons of sewage was spilled into a ditch in Fairhope, while 8,000 gallons was discharged into Hollinger Creek in Bay Minette, according to the health department.

Across Mobile Bay, more than 80,000 of untreated sewage spilled into three creeks in Mobile, according to the Mobile Area Water & Sewer System.
