The head of the National Hurricane Center does an excellent job of explaining why and how Tropical Storm Barry is dangerous, despite its disorderly Big Easy nature (our words not his). https://facebook.com/NWSNHC/?refid=52&__tn__=C-R Podcast version: https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/audio/201907121305.mp3

It is organizing itself a bit more, however, as can be seen in the above image. We can only hope and pray that with the storm surge along Lake Ponchartrain AND the river surge AND torrential rains AND pre-existing high level of the river that the levee holds in the area of the Waterford Nuclear Power Station and petrochemical facilities (and everywhere else). They are on the river, and Waterford NPS along with some petrochemical facilities actually also face the Lake and the Bonnet Carre spillway. Waterford is almost directly across from the Bonnet Carre, but some facilities directly face it. How dumb is that? Is the Bonnet Carre still open? What would be the impacts of that?

We also hope and pray that it keep drifting west and impact the LNG facility of Trump’s buddy Karl Icahn with the eastern side drenching whoever Trump was protecting in the Atchafalaya, when his appointee failed to open the Morganza, all while sparing the good people and the environment. One can but hope.
