The authorities warned of storm Barry to bring heavy rain and the possibility of a tornado all day in Louisiana.

However, little information was given regarding the possibility of floods.

Beginning as the Atlantic cyclone, Barry is weakening and his temper has changed to tropical storms, but is still capable of serious threats when he travels to the interior.

Following that, all flights in and out at the airport in New Orleans had to be canceled, while thousands of residents left their homes.

Tens of thousands of residents are still experiencing electricity disruption and aid groups are reportedly ready to act as needed.

Governor Louisiana, John Bel Edwards, said the storm will reach its peak today, and many areas will receive more rain, as in the daytime.

“Do not think the worst thing has passed,” he told a news conference.

Meanwhile, the National Hurricane Center said the winds at 75 kilometers per hour were expected to hit at 1.00 am (local time) and would bring a storm to the west of Alexandria, before moving north at a speed of 12 kilometers per hour.

“Barry is still a dangerous storm with its impact expected to increase Sunday,” said the National Weather Service via Twitter.
