    Earlier coverage:

    Winds from Tropical Storm Barry reached Louisiana's coast Friday morning. Late afternoon, Barry was located about 70 miles south-southeast of Morgan City, Louisiana, and its maximum sustained winds were 65 mph.

    Barry is moving toward the west-northwest near 6 mph (9 km/h) and is expected to make landfall, possibly as a hurricane, on Saturday morning.

    On the forecast track, the center of Barry will approach the central or southeastern coast of Louisiana through tonight and then make landfall over the central Louisiana coast on Saturday.

    After landfall, Barry is expected to move generally northward through the Mississippi Valley through Sunday night.

    Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts.

    Strengthening is forecast before landfall, and Barry is expected to be a hurricane when the center reaches the Louisiana coast on Saturday.

    Weakening is expected after Barry moves inland.

    Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km) from the center.

    An oil rig located southwest of the Mouth of the Mississippi River recently reported sustained winds of 74 mph and a wind gust of 85 mph at an elevation of 295 ft.

    The estimated minimum central pressure is 993 mb (29.33 inches).

    (Tropical Storm Barry Advisory Number 10 - 400 PM CDT...2100 UTC)

    Damaging wind isn’t the only threat a hurricane or a tropical storm can bring

    Barry is expected to bring heavy rains and a dangerous storm surge to Louisiana. Storm surge and flooding can be just as damaging as high winds. 10-20 inches are expected to fall in parts of Louisiana and southwest Mississippi, some areas could see up to 25 inches of rain.

    Federal emergency was declared for the state as crews prepare for storm surge.
