Not good;

I'm all about helping disaster-stricken people out but the FEMA assistance for Katrina went on way past its need (and some may still be flowing)...

Well if you consider the river in flood stage since January will crest at 19 feet Sat about the same time as the Storm surge crest of 4 to 6 feet with out any additional rain with up to 20 inches predicted a nothing burger ?
You might consider the river levees in greater New Orleans are from 20 feet to 25 feet high I see a catastrophe in the making .

from 10AM

STORM SURGE: The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water could reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Mouth of the Atchafalaya River to Shell Beach...3 to 6 ft Shell Beach to Biloxi MS...3 to 5 ft Intracoastal City to the Mouth of the Atchafalaya River...3 to 5 ft Lake Pontchartrain...3 to 5 ft Biloxi MS to the Mississippi/Alabama border...2 to 4 ft Lake Maurepas...1 to 3 ft

Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances. For information specific to your area, please see products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office.

RAINFALL: Barry is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 10 to 20 inches over south-central and southeast Louisiana along with southwest Mississippi, with isolated maximum amounts of 25 inches. These rains are expected to lead to dangerous, life threatening flooding over portions of the central Gulf Coast into the Lower Mississippi Valley. Over the remainder of the Lower Mississippi Valley, total rain accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are expected, with isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches.

President Trump approves La. emergency declaration, urges caution to residents



OAN Newsroom
UPDATED 6:44 AM PT – Friday, July 12, 2019
As Tropical Storm Barry inches toward the gulf coast, the Trump administration is working with local officials to avert a potential disaster.

President Trump approved Louisiana’s emergency declaration Thursday night, allowing both FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security to work with local governments in disaster preparedness, response and recovery. It also opens the door for federal funds to go toward disaster relief if needed.

This comes as weather experts say the tropical storm has a good chance of becoming a category one hurricane, which could see winds of around 75 miles per hour. However, officials have warned that the potential flooding and torrential rainfall caused by the storm are likely to be the main challenge.

Was always under the impression that it was dumped intoLake Pontchartrain. You know, the lake to the north that the levees were built to prevent flooding the lower laying lands of New Orleans proper....mentioned in this news report:
