BATON ROUGE- Sunday morning, what was left of Karen finally fell apart. Karen has dissipated, according to meteorologists who have spent the last 48 hours closely watching the pesky storm.

Satellite imagery indicated that the center was no longer well defined.

What is left of the storm still had sustained winds of about 30 mph. The storm system is expected to move eastward over the next two days.

While the storm is no longer a serious threat, storm surge is possible in low areas. Experts predict rainfall from the system to be about one to three inches through Monday evening.

Most evacuation orders in southern areas of Louisiana ended Sunday morning.

The National Hurricane Center said at 10:00 a.m. Sunday, it was issuing its last advisory dealing with Karen.
