Barry Strengthens to Hurricane Before Making Landfall in Louisiana

Hurricane Barry made landfall in Louisiana at around 10 am on Saturday, July 13, bringing sustained winds of up to 75 mph, storm surges, and life-threatening flooding, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

The NHC said that the hurricane was centered about 50 miles south of Louisianaโ€™s Morgan City and was moving northwest at around 6 mph.

This satellite imagery, recorded over the four-hour period preceding 10 am on Saturday, shows the storm strengthening as it approached the Gulf Coast.

The center also said Barry was โ€œexpected to produce total rain accumulations of 10 to 20 inches over south-central and southeast Louisiana and southwest Mississippi, with isolated maximum amounts of 25 inches.โ€ Credit: NASA/NOAA GOES-East via Storyful
