Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “First Tropical Storm Warning of 2021 Issued for New Orleans, Gulf Coast” – below is their description.
The U.S. Gulf coast is getting its first tropical-storm warnings of the year, stretching from Louisiana to Florida, including New Orleans, the National Hurricane Center said.
Though still not officially at tropical storm-strength, the system is gathering power in the Gulf of Mexico about 475 miles (764 kilometers) south of Morgan City, Louisiana, and is forecast to bring heavy rain and winds to the region over the next 36 hours.
“The system is expected to produce heavy rainfall and considerable flash, urban and small stream flooding beginning Friday and continuing through the weekend along the central Gulf coast and spreading northeastward into the Southern Appalachians,” the hurricane center said.
Its maximum sustained winds are currently about 30 miles-per-hour. If that reaches 39 miles-per-hour and it maintains its structure, it would be upgraded to Tropical Storm Claudette. The storm may bring flooding rains across New Orleans, before sweeping across the U.S. South.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
