St Bernard Parish, National Hurricane Center, Sally discussed on Tommy Tucker, WWL First News

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

To do it every time we have to, and we will not get complacent. We have about a minute left guy for people in ST Bernard Parish timeline. What are you hearing from the National Weather service in terms of what they can expect, Starting when and lasting until when. But we're thinking tropical Storm whether 30 to 40 Mile an hour winds in Saint and, um, safe in our parish, starting at around 1 A.m.. Andi, This is such a slow moving storm. We're looking at it coming to Biloxi, Marsh. Um, uh, one PM on What would that be Tuesday? So you know we're going. We're going to see gusts of up to 50 or 60 Miles an hour, and I remember Tommy that's based on the last Track right? That all can change. But as of right now, we're still looking at some heavy winds over sustained period of time. And if this thing jog a little bit to the West, we could have a significant raining that If it jogs significantly or just a little bit to the East. We can stop the storm surge, so this thing could go either way, But it looks like right now We're going to get some storm surge. We're going to get a lot of wind and that as much rain as we expected Thank you. Guy. McGinnis President ST Bernard Parish time now. 8 30. That means WWL First news with Dave Cohen. From our Jefferson Financial Federal Credit Union Studios now is serving Jefferson Orleans and ST Tammany Parishes Beats WWL First news at 8 30 Good morning Here's the latest from your official weather station, WWL AM FM and DOTCOM Sunshine bigger through the clouds. Today's if you outta rain bands from Sally Start to move on in this afternoon about 60% chance of those Up for some heavy rain and gusty winds. The band's pushed by with highs in the upper eighties, your local weather expert WWL TV meteorologist Dave knows bombs. Sally is having trouble getting organized and is a lopsided storm with none of the shower activity. Wrapping around the center of circulation before half, however, is calling for it to make landfall in Mississippi now, not Louisiana, the National Hurricane Center this morning Is continuing to forecast the eye to just clip maybe southern Plaquemines Parish, break a car across ST Bernard Parish and then move into Mississippi with the worst of the weather than in Mississippi, Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. I talked about that, with WWL TV meteorologist Peyton Malone and the forecast that calls for a Sally to become a Category one hurricane before turning toward Mississippi. There's still that you know, big question on how close is it going to get to the mouth of the river for it Makes that turn So that's what we'll be watching as we go throughout today and going into tonight. Of course, as Sally continues to move in encouraging that from last night overnight and into this morning, the National Hurricane Center is thinking is that Sally makes a landfall somewhere between Bay, Saint Louis and past Christianne. If that track holds, and we know that's a big if that puts the worst of the storm to our East and greater New Orleans would be spared the most intense impacts correct. Yes, With that track, you know, it would certainly help with the rainfall potential and the wind. Of course, right. The big question. There's gonna be a tie Grady in and that means the rainfall totals are going to drop off really fast as you get away from the storm. So there, you know, it could be 5 10. Miles makes a huge difference in the forecast. And as you know, that's hard to forecast 5 to 10 Miles, and especially with the slow moving storm. So for right now, things look much better for Louisiana. But any wobble to the West could be worse for this region. Regardless, people outside the levee protection should expect to see the water rising. Regardless of where the lie I makes landfall. That'll mean from plaque amends to ST Bernard Orleans and into ST Tammany. They'll see the water coming up with that storm surge that could be a high as 11 FT. There are some mandatory evacuations as we hear from WWL TV. She buttered that includes all of ST Charles Parish in Blackman's Paris, the entire East Bank and West Bank from the Phillips Alliance refinery to Venice's under evacuation, and the same goes for coastal areas of Jefferson Parish, including Grand Out Barrett Area, Crown Point and Lower Laffite. In ST John Parish, everything north of airline highway low lying areas of Hancock County, Mississippi, and then finally, areas outside of the levee system in Orleans Parish. Why is ST Charles Parish the on Ly one to Issue a parish wide mandatory evacuation? We ask ST Charles Parish Public information officer Sandra de Castro. Don't search is definitely a concern. Just because of our position between The river and the lake in the area, but originally and still continuously concerned about the amount of wind. We know that during Hurricane Katrina and Isaac, what kind of Damage was done in the parish with the wind and with high winds. That means that power poles and trees are being knocked down, and that would put us without power for an extended period of time. So it's really a combination of all those things. She said. While the forecast does look better now they want to see the trend continue, particularly with the 10 A.m. path released from the Hurricane Center in Justin, Our Anna have no school today across southeast Louisiana, except in New Orleans, where distance learning will continue. We'll have more coming up on Sally. Meanwhile elsewhere, CBS.
