New Orleans storm blows train off elevated rail, no reported injuries

April 27, 2015

A series of violent thunderstorms struck parts of New Orleans and surrounding areas on Monday.

Wind gusts reached speeds of up to 111 miles per hour, according to local news station WWLTV.

The storm was strong enough to derail 11 train cars from the Huey Long Bridge as seen in the video above.

The shipping containers fell approximately 20 feet from the elevated tracks. No injuries have been reported.

Multiple power lines were also knocked down, leaving an estimated 149,000 residents in the region without electricity.

Train cars are crashed beneath the Huey P. Long Bridge, which crosses over the Mississippi River, after they toppled off the bridge from high winds in Jefferson Parish, La., just outside New Orleans, Monday, April 27, 2015. More than 200,000 homes and businesses lost power and at least four cars carrying freight containers were blown off the approach to the Huey P. Long Bridge outside New Orleans as a line of severe thunderstorms moved across southeast Louisiana. None of the freight containers held hazardous cargo, and nobody was injured,  (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)
