Tropical Storm Barry's Flood Threat Continues

US-WEATHER-ENVIRONMENT

Flooding will be a major threat from Tropical Storm Barry.

The National Weather Service warned of life-threatening storm surge on the Louisiana coast.

In some areas, the storm surge could reach up to six feet.

Adding to the threat of flooding will be a downpour of rain.

Forecasters say Barry is moving slowly so heavy rain will be falling for a long time, with some places getting up to 25 inches in the next couple days.

Barry is expected to gain strength and turn into a hurricane late Friday or early Saturday.

Hurricane warnings have been issued for parts of the Louisiana coast.
