SOUNDBITE (English) Gov. John Bel Edwards, (R) Louisiana: "The expectation as this weather event will be focused on rain, not so much on the wind, although 35 to 40 mile an hour wind when you have saturated ground can easily uproot trees and so forth. So that hazard is still there. Obviously, a lot will depend upon the exact track that the storm takes and and how fast it moves. But we can expect all of south Louisiana to be impacted. The range of rainfall will be somewhere between one inch and eight inches. Right now, the expectation is that the eastern side of the storm will have the most significant impacts."++ENDS ON SOUNDBITE++STORYLINE:A tropical storm warning has been issued for parts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama as a potential tropical cyclone advanced toward the northern Gulf Coast. The warning extends from Intracoastal City, Louisiana, to the Alabama-Florida border. Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center say heavy rainfall and flooding will likely be the most significant hazard, with the storm reaching the coast beginning on Friday. Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards mentioned the looming storm during a news conference where he announced Louisiana parishes still recovering from two hurricanes that struck last year are now in line to get more than $176 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. He says all of south Louisiana will be impacted and some places could receive eight inches of rain. As of Thursday evening, the storm was located about 475 miles south of Morgan City, Louisiana, with maximum sustained winds of 30 mph. Meteorologists expect the 2021 season to be busy, but not as crazy as the record-breaking 2020 season.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
