Get Ready: Tropical Storm Barry Set to Hit Northern Gulf Coast Saturday Morning

Posted by on July 12th, 2019 Posted in: Emergency Preparedness and Response


Tropical Storm Barry is intensifying and is expected to make landfall Saturday as a hurricane along the northern Gulf Coast, spreading widespread torrential rain up the lower Mississippi Valley, leading to major river flooding and flash flooding in parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas, along with storm-surge flooding and strong winds.

According to Weather.com:

  • Tropical Storm Barry will move ashore along the northern Gulf Coast Saturday morning.
  • 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 Mississippi.
