Tropical Storm Barry Whips Power Lines and Floods Roads in Coastal Louisiana

Wild winds and storm surge battered coastal Louisiana on Friday, July 12, ahead of Tropical Storm Barry’s forecasted landfall the following morning.

The National Hurricane Center said the storm would bring “life-threatening storm surge inundation” along the Gulf Coast, long-duration heavy rainfall, flash flooding and river flooding.

Mayor of New Orleans LaToya Cantrell called for the voluntary evacuation of residents in areas outside of levee protection, and for others to shelter in place by 8 pm Friday.

This footage, shared from Port Fourchon’s Twitter account, shows waves flooding over the LA-1 near Golden Meadow, and strong winds whipping power lines.

The LA-1 was closed to traffic from 2.20 pm on Friday and residents in the area were issued mandatory evacuation notices.
