Tropical Storm Barry could be bad news for hurricane-battered Gulf Coast


Living on the Gulf of Mexico is a double-edged sword.

On one hand, you have some of the most gorgeous beaches in all of the United States, from Galveston to Panama City.  Just behind these beaches, often no further inland than a few yards, you’ll find bars and restaurants serving up some of the freshest seafood that you’ll ever have the chance to indulge in.

And, in most cases, the weather is fantastic.

This week, a tropical storm forming off the Gulf Coast has meteorologists warning residents that it’s time to pay their dues.

A brewing tropical weather system in the Gulf of Mexico is bringing widespread flash flooding across New Orleans on Wednesday, as forecasters warn the storm could strengthen to a hurricane by the weekend and push the already swollen Mississippi River precariously close to the tops of levees that protect the city.

The National Hurricane Center said a low-pressure area over the water south of the FloridaPanhandle is forecast to strengthen into Tropical Storm Barry by Thursday night, the second named storm of the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

“There is a 90 percent chance that this becomes Tropical Storm Barry in the next 48 hours,” Fox News Meteorologist Adam Klotz said on “FOX & friends. “Even if it doesn’t become Tropical Storm Barry, it is going to produce a lot of rain.”

As for the scope of the storm, meteorologists were alarming in their vagueness, warning that citizens from Texas to Florida should be keeping an eye on the developing storm.
