        Hurricane Barry is a relatively mild hurricane, but these events are extremely dangerous. In fact the weaker storms sometimes have more impact by a false sense of security many have regarding them!


        Hurricane Barry Moving Onto Louisiana Coast; Heavy Rain Moves In; Dangerous Flooding Ahead in Lower Mississippi Valley

        At a Glance:

        Hurricane Barry will make landfall today along the northern Gulf Coast, possibly as a hurricane.

        A major threat of rainfall flooding is in play over the northern Gulf Coast and lower Mississippi Valley.

        New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, are among the cities in a high risk for flooding rainfall.

        Hurricane, tropical storm and storm-surge warnings have been issued for the northern Gulf Coast.

        Storm-surge flooding will also add to the water worries, particularly along and east of Barry’s track.

        Power outages are likely in parts of Louisiana and Mississipp.

          We had a tropical storm on Okinawa, 20″ of rain in 24 hours, but since we were at the top of the hills we escaped being washed out to sea. And this one is bringing heavy rains to NOLA Haiti, USA.
