Tropical Storm Barry hit the Gulf of Mexico with heavy rainfall and storm surge on Thursday. This is the first tropical system to hit the U.S. this year and it strengthened into a Category 1 hurricane as it made landfall on July 13. Coastal Louisiana is seeing as much as 25 inches of rain across the coastal parts of the state. Barry is slow moving so flooding remains a significant concern across Louisiana, Alabama, Texas, and Mississippi.
