1. It could develop into a hurricane. Thoughts and prayers.

Prediction how it will look this afternoon.

3. 7-day forcast for July 10 to July 17, 2019...

...


In its 2 pm EDT (July 9.2019) tropical weather outlook on Tuesday, National Hurricane Center gave 92L an 70% chance of developing into at least a depression by Thursday afternoon, and models are suggesting a tropical storm (which would be called Barry) is likely to form. Regardless of how strong it gets, this system could easily produce rainfall amounts of 10" or more along and near the upper Gulf Coast, especially over southern Louisiana.

5. I had a tough time getting to my office in downtown New Orleans because of road flooding.

The rain is lighter now, but I keep getting automated flood and tornado warnings on my phone. I think I've had 7 or 8 in the last 2 hours.

7. this is worse than mother's day in the bywater

I had to move my car to the levee a little while ago. street flooding here has only been this bad twice since katrina, mother's day and today.

another fear - how much surge in lake pontchartrain will it take to back up the bonne carre spillway?

it does seem a little lighter now. I hope you can get home ok. hope you and yours remain ok. I wish a few of those cats would come indoors.

10. This is kinda scary how quickly everything started flooding this morning.

It's been so dry for the last month I expected the soil would suck up most of the rain, but not so.

Stay safe!

24. Lake Pontchartrain isn't the issue

Because of the wind direction, there won't be much of a surge in the lake. The problem will be the surge coming up the mouth of the river. Because of the already high river level, it's projected to near the top of the levee.

6. Not unusual to see 24 inches of rainfall in 24 hours along that Mississippi corridor

though, typically in the wake of tropical storms. I've been in many places with monsoon seasons where it rains every day for months, but nowhere have I seen it rain as much as fast as it can along the Gulf Coast. Rain so hard you can't see to drive.

15. Oh, sorry for the confusion. I meant that I received 7 or 8 automated phone calls

about flooding and tornados within two hours.

I'm at work and don't have access to tv, so I have no idea how much rain has fallen.

16. Big blob out in gulf supposed to be heading your way, slowly. No telling where it ends up later

Models say maybe Texas. Looks like a big rainmaker

Weird storm, came from north then moved south past fl panhandle, now trying to get organized

18. "slowly" is the problem.

if this thing would speed up our pumps might catch up.

21. No doubt, those are the worst, the ones that just sit there and dump rain

I had to get a submersable pump to drain a low spot in the backyard, 2-3 inches of a rain in a day and i got a frog pond.

Punp works great, attach a 100ft garden hose to it and pump in into the front road gutters, dries it up, in 8 hrs or so. Better than a swamp for a week.

19. The Mississippi River is already at flood stage. This...

... flooding could really get bad as 92L strengthens and heads your way.

My go to source for storm info is Tropical Tidbits.

https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/

It is the most comprehensive and complete analysis Iíve seen. And you donít have to be a meteorologist to understand what heís saying. I live in Mobile, so weíre watching this storm closely.

Edited to add: Get to a high area and stay safe.

20. Please be careful

New Orleans du'ers. Turn around, don't drown, and assume the worst. Would be heart breaking for me to see that lovely city and the LOVEYS in it go through a disaster of that scope again.

22. Here in Kansas, normally pretty dry, I wake up each morning to find it has rained overnight,

And it often rains during the day, too. Our long-term statewide drought has receded to the point that drought.gov shows this:

DROUGHT IN KANSAS

Residents in drought:
0%
0% more in abnormally dry areas.

This is:
0%
of the stateís population,
0% more in abnormally dry areas
