Hurricane Barry

Barry strengthened to a hurricane Saturday as it pushed toward the south-central Louisiana coast west of New Orleans, bringing torrential downpours along the Gulf Coast that could soak some areas with up to two feet of rain and add to widespread flooding.

As of 10 a.m. CDT Saturday, the center of Hurricane Barry — the nation's first this season — was 40 miles southwest of Morgan City, moving at 6 mph with maximum sustained winds of 75, just above the hurricane threshold, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The slow-moving hurricane, which will steadily weaken as it pushes across land, is expected to move northward through the Mississippi Valley through Sunday night.
