Tropical Storm Barry Punishes Louisiana Coast With Slow Moving Heavy Rain

The edges of tropical storm Barry are hitting the Louisiana coast with heavy rain. Roads are flooded and tens of thousands of people are without power, forcing some evacuations. The storm’s powerful winds have toppled trees and blown around aluminum siding. Barry is expected to make landfall later this morning, most likely as a hurricane, about 85 miles southwest of New Orleans in Morgan City, Louisiana. Currently, the storm is about 55 miles southwest of Morgan City with maximum sustained winds of 65 mph. David Begnaud reports.
