After battling the high terrain of Hispaniola and Cuba, as well as wind shear and some dry air, Erika is essentially "no more." The remnants are now over south Cuba.

The remnants of Erika are still forecast to move north into the extreme eastern Gulf of Mexico, this bringing heavy rainfall to parts of Florida.

The Gulf waters are warm and the atmosphere a little more favorable, so it's not entirely impossible that Erika could regenerate once she moves back into the Gulf.

The National Hurricane Center is no longer issuing advisories with Erika, however if she comes back from the dead, they will continue. Even so, with that possible, she likely won't be a threat for Louisiana. We'll continue monitoring this storm until it is dead and gone.
