Tropical Storm Barry in Louisiana, USA 2019. Tropical Storm Barry is edging ever closer to Louisiana, where it could unload dangerous amounts of rain this weekend, in some places in excess of two feet. It is also predicted to push ashore a “life-threatening storm surge,” or a rise in water levels above normally dry land at the coast that can inundate low-lying roads, homes and businesses.
Water levels are rising and winds are picking up along the Louisiana coast and bands of heavy rain are arriving. Lumbering toward the coast at just 3 mph, Barry presents “a long duration heavy rainfall and flood threat” according to the National Hurricane Center.
