The state of Louisiana received the first wave of tropical Storm Barry early on Friday, with the storm expected to become the first hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean this year, and the storm is warning heavy rains and flooding in New Orleans.

Officials said the storm was expected to be accompanied by heavy rainfall of up to 64 centimeters in isolated areas that could cause serious flooding along the Mississippi River, which has been inundated for months.>

President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency in Louisiana, and oil production in the region was halved as energy companies evacuated their offshore facilities.

The winds of the storm reached 85 kilometers per hour on Friday morning and are still 155 kilometers southwest of the estuary of the Mississippi River.

The hurricane is likely of at least 119 km on landfall late Friday or Saturday morning, officials said, but officials warn heavy rains are the biggest threat.
