Pumps coming back online

4:30 P.M. - BATON ROUGE (AP): The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers today made progress in repairing pumps around New Orleans.
By midday, 23 of the 148 permanent pumps are working in New Orleans and in Saint Bernard Parish, three of the 28 pumps are working.
John Hall, a spokesman for the U-S Army Corps of Engineers, said it's not clear how long it will be before all the pumps are up and running.
Possible damage to the pumps from debris remains a concern. If the water pumps get blocked and begin sucking air, Hall says it can damage them.
