Tropical Depression Barry is slowly moving inland, bringing with it the possibility of flooding and tornadoes in central Louisiana and eastern Mississippi.
Briefly a Category 1 hurricane, Barry made landfall in Louisiana on Saturday, and its winds have been steadily weakening. The U.S. National Hurricane Center on Sunday said south-central Louisiana could see rainfall totals of up to 15 inches, and this "rainfall is expected to lead to dangerous, life-threatening flooding."
There were fears that Barry would hit New Orleans directly, and Mayor LaToya Cantrell said on Sunday the city was "spared" and "beyond lucky" it didn't receive as much rain as was predicted.
