The National Weather Service said Saturday morning that Tropical Storm Barry was now Hurricane Barry, a category 1 storm, heading toward land. But when it arrived early Saturday afternoon, near Intracoastal City, it was quickly downgraded to Tropical Storm status again, with 65 MPH sustained winds and expected 85 MPH gusts. Barry is expected to bring far more rain than wind. Forecasters say two or more feet of rain is expected and rain will fall where flooding has previously been an issue, the NWS says. Inland flooding was a big concern.
And in Livingston Parish, Louisiana, flooding led a displaced baby gator into a confrontation with a pair of dogs in a garage. The Louisiana Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness tweet assured folks that no animal was injured.
