Tropical Storm Barry has officially formed in the Gulf of Mexico and is expected to strike the Louisiana coast late Friday night or early Saturday morning. Hurricane watches and storm-surge warnings are in effect. Flooding has already occurred in many parts of the state, including in New Orleans.
Convoy of Hope is closely monitoring the storm and is prepositioning two loads of relief supplies that include food, water, and hygiene kits.
