Louisiana braces for Barry

Louisiana Prepares For Flooding As Tropical Storm Barry Approaches

Tropical Storm Barry is gaining strength as it heads toward New Orleans. The National Hurricane Center says the storm now has sustained winds of 65 miles-per-hour with higher gusts. Barry is expected to reach hurricane strength today or early tomorrow, and could bring life-threatening flooding along coasts and rivers. The storm is currently about 100 miles from the Louisiana coast, where a hurricane warning is in effect. Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has declared a state of emergency and two parishes in Louisiana are under mandatory evacuation orders.
