8:20am Update on (Forecast) Hurricane Barry

Extreme Flooding and Power Failures Are
Likely in Louisiana and Far Western Louisiana

Here is the National Hurricane Center's Forecast:
The yellow tinting is the area with sustained 39 mph or higher winds. The red is a hurricane warning. Blue is a tropical storm warning. S=Tropical Storm. D=Tropical Depression.

The storm is expected to be right at hurricane strength (sustained 75 mph winds) at landfall. Here is a rough forecast of peak winds as the storm moves inland.

Here is the forecast rainfall from Barry.

The already wet ground + flooding + strong winds = trees toppling into power lines and extensive power failures...some that could last for days. Please prepare accordingly.
