Yikes! Tropical Storm Bonnie!!

Final advisory on Bonnie (continued)

The remnants of Tropical Depression Bonnie will move into southeastern Louisiana overnight with 4-to-8-foot seas over the spill area, dangerous rip currents and locally heavy 1-to-3-inch rains for parts of the northern Gulf Coast.

The remainder of the tropics, including the rest of the Atlantic as well as the Pacific Ocean, remains quiet with no areas expected to develop in the next couple of days.

 

Yeah... This just hit us and omg... I saw lightning flash, heard the thunder crack and it just started pouring. We're supposed to get a 3.5 ft increase in water levels at the spillway by us. Yikes. I hope it doesn't get too bad!

 I don't know if it will dissipate before shreveport but it more than likely will because its on a tropical storm, not a hurricane.  It looked like Mississippi was going to get some of it as well. Let me find a radar link.

My df is in Venice cleaning up the oil spill and he was one of the few that had to stay in a mobile home there because he is a 1st response person. He says it wasn't that bad there, but he slept for several hours and is asleep again.

Everyone that was working for his company was sent to New Orleans but he had to stay. We were texting an hour ago and he was making some noodles before going back to sleep lol.

 Well, we're in St. John Parish and its raining pretty hard here. I'm SOOOOO new to all this hurricane/tropical storm stuff because I lived in Dallas and Oklahoma most of my life. Tornados seem a lot less scary to me. I guess it just freaks me out.
