    Exclamation Rain-packed Tropical Storm Lee forms off Louisiana

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tropical Storm Lee formed in the waters off Louisiana on Friday, threatening a drenching along much of the Gulf coast over the Labor Day weekend with up to 20 inches of rain in some spots.


    Mississippi's governor declared a state of emergency in seven counties on or near the coast, saying the storm is expected to cause tremendous flooding. A state of emergency frees up resources that can be used to prepare for a storm, and Louisiana's governor declared one Thursday because of the threat of flash flooding. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu also declared a state of emergency for the city on Friday.


    Lee could unleash "efficient and torrential topical rains" for the next several days, the National Weather Service said.

    Well, I think the marsh fire is out.

    Wish we could push some of this westward to you guys who need it. I've seen cats, dogs and pumpernickels today.

    About ten inches of rain fell here in NOLA since yesterday. Street flooding and branches down all over the place. Power outages are patchy and not widespread. Luckily, we're getting a little break in the rain now, which is great so the pumps can catch up. Forecast for the next two days, more wind and rain (and time for sleuthing ). But the storm is moving a little faster now, so the weather might clear out sooner than expected.

    Anyone else having problems with Lee?

    Lee is giving us fits too in East Baton Rouge parish. A lot of sandbagging going on in places that never flood.
    And pretty constant tornado warnings every few minutes.
    I hope everybody stays safe in this mess.

    We've been getting a nice, slow and steady rain for the last couple of hours here in East Texas. We need a couple of weeks just like this. It's wonderful in contrast to the 105+ degree heat we have had for over a month now.
    To all our Louisiana sleuths...stay safe.
