Tropical depression or storm expected to form along Gulf Coast, could become 'dangerous' hurricane

The second storm of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season is expected to form Wednesday or Thursday along the Gulf Coast.

The weather system, currently spinning off the coast of the Florida Panhandle, could either form as a tropical depression or a tropical storm. If the depression's winds reach 39 mph, it would become Tropical Storm Barry.

But its eventual fate could be stronger: "This system has the potential to become a dangerous hurricane," the National Weather Service in Lake Charles, Louisiana, said on its Facebook page on Tuesday. "The threat for damaging winds and deadly storm surge is increasing."

The National Hurricane Center said Wednesday morning that there's a 90% chance a tropical depression will form within the next 48 hours in the Gulf of Mexico.

2. It's already flooding in NOLA. Mississippi is 16 ft above normal.

Pumps are working but if the levees breach it's going to be really bad even if the storm goes to the west.

3. Poor dear New Orleans...here's a pic indicating future rainfall amounts - looks as if the Arkansas

River could be flooding again? And Baton Rouge, all those northern parishes...not good
