Barry made landfall this afternoon in Louisiana as a Category 1 hurricane, before being downgraded into a tropical storm. The system is now crawling north-northwest at 7 mph, brining extended downfalls that could prompt heavy flooding to the area.

Here’s what you need to know about the storm:

  • Where it’s going: Barry, now a tropical storm, is expected to weaken further as it travels northward into Louisiana. It’s expected to become a tropical depression on Sunday. You canfollow the storm’s predicted path here.
  • Most of the storm is still in the gulf: Despite the center of the storm being over land, the vast majority of Barry’s thunderstorm activity remained over the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday evening.
  • Rain is the real threat: The rainfall that always posed the greatest threat, regardless of whether the storm was a hurricane or a tropical storm. Coastal storm surge had overtopped levees by midday Saturday, and extended downfalls that could prompt heavy flooding are still expected, forecasters have said.
  • Evacuations ordered: Somecities and parishes in Louisiana have issued mandatory evacuation orders, especially in low-lying areas and those outside public levee protection, along with voluntary evacuation warnings for other places, the governor said.
