Tropical Storm Barry Heads Toward Flood-Drenched Louisiana

Tropical Storm Barry shown heading toward the U.S.

GULF COAST, USA – Tropical Storm Barry is heading toward the Gulf Coast of the U.S. The storm will likely strengthen to a hurricane and make landfall somewhere in Louisiana early Saturday—a Louisiana that’s already drenched with flood water.

Both a state and national emergency have been declared ahead of this powerful storm. The current flooding increases the threat of damage, especially in the New Orleans area. The levee system will face a huge challenge as the storm makes land.
