Severe weather brings flooding, hail across Louisiana
The National Weather Service has issued several severe storm warnings across Louisiana Thursday.
Dr. Josh says people can expect heavy rain and storms. The window for severe weather will be from late morning through late afternoon and the atmosphere will be supportive of gusty wind, hail and an isolated tornado—especially north of I-10. A longer duration of rain, heavy at times, will result in 1 to 3 inches of rain across the area, with some isolated higher amounts possible.
Please remember to just find an alternate route... being late is better than stalling and being without a car! https://t.co/QEKrIoWI2B— Josh Eachus (@DrJoshWX) April 4, 2019
