And if you wake up maybe heading to church this morning assists a tropical storm -- still withers and a lot is still to come. -- let's go live to the WWL Eyewitness News weather center. Meteorologist Laura but -- joins us live earlier again. More there's a flash flood warning in effect -- Yes fort terribly wrong with this -- assumption parish is until noon basically that heavy band that's been aware much of the south story in the North Shore. A leading to some street flooding they are we have not had reports of which streets are -- flooding but. Normally the National Weather Service kind of monitors rainfall amounts of makes the kind of hit that threshold they pull the trigger. -- flooding so if you are those three parishes assumption of these terror -- try to seal off the roads were saying you need you know. Unnecessary driving just don't do that today is the -- stay put inside this. It's just such a massive storm and you and I've talked about this well we can anybody yes they were talking about it again today this goes over to Mississippi Alabama the Florida beaches a lot of people might have wanted to -- for the holiday weekend hopefully there are still enjoying it a storm on the beach can be fun but. This is this is just -- a reminder because if the center is to the west of New Orleans and this stretches as Far East as. Destin and Panama City this is a massive solar system. Exactly and -- a lot of questions you know. Various email that's -- phone calls it the -- over and I would say here in Louisiana note the worst is not over. Until that low passes east of us until it's in Mississippi Alabama and away from month. We're still going to see bands of rain -- -- through now you will have periods of dry spot so it's not going to be. All day range He will have been times where. I maybe even see it because side here -- -- throughout southeastern Louisiana but until that low is actually east of us and we're on that dry western side. We -- not clear yet we still have a chance for rain and even flooding rain. It looks as if the center of this storm is gonna go between New Orleans and Baton Rouge and and and had a little bit to the north but then it kind of curves toward the east over the over the nor shortly concentrate. Yet it's really good and decent probably loop to loops and it's all here. It as we've been saying it really doesn't matter what the center does because as we that this is such a far reaching storm that. If this that are meanders a little bit closer Baton Rouge or Lafayette or to the north or south it really has no theory on the weather for us were so -- bands of rain comes through. And it's still going to be wet and breezy and kind of nasty threat today in most of tomorrow so that general movement. Over a long period time it's what we wanna look at and the general movement is going to be northeast slowly. Today and tomorrow in picking up some speed TC Wednesday's it meets up with the cold front that's gonna quickly escalated out to the northeast and away from must. Yet you you and -- are not far apart our studios -- rather close a close together so -- -- we're getting a break right now but right I guys I see more coming and it's just it's interesting how. Away but -- so characteristic of tropical weather hurricanes -- the feeder bands the squall lines coming data and and then there's a break and for those who do see sunshine. Even if it's is even if it's brief -- this is not the eye of the storm because this right this is a tropical storm doesn't really happen I percent. Sure it just breaks in between the -- if -- your colony from Houston and saying hey. Is the worst of it through -- yes I'm giving you the alt click here but actually. For any of us in Louisiana this storm is still west of us it's still west of left yet even fifty miles west of left yet so. Everyone east of that from Louisiana to Mississippi all the way to Florida the rain is still going to be with us in period that these -- them through. Through tomorrow and it it would. At what rates will the rain will the rain come. It's been pretty heavy heavy we've had some totals this morning with some of these heavy bands of and into two inches in about an hour hour and a half so. It is a lot of rain we talk about tropical rain it's kind of different than those afternoon storms it's different in the -- you get. Threw cold fronts that come through and that sort of thing. It's just it's so much rainfall the rain drops -- achieved a lot of moisture the -- super saturated. And -- get a lot of rain in the short amount of time now the good things so far that think it's been. Helping out with flooding situation. Is that we are getting some breaks in between because when you look at rainfall totals -- -- Marrero since the storm began fifteen inches of rain if we had that all one time. We'd be toast I mean we have. Flooding reports coming in everywhere but the fact that we're getting an -- two inches and then a break another two inches that a break that's really been helpful this go around. And it's keeping most areas from -- needing major flooding we're having street flooding and that sort of thing but it's so far it's insane. Mostly in the streets were exposed to. -- for the New Orleans area Laura I guess this could be called the perfect storm and got in in a negative sense but in a in a positive way to foresee for some people it's not the perfect storm but a -- New Orleans area this was the perfect storm because it brought the rain we needed. It's we've really -- a lot of accidents inlet tunnel at the marsh fire out east we just had a reporter my directory -- -- through the -- And did it she can still smell the smoke smell in B -- -- but it's not as thick that was last week. And certainly with the rain it's helping things we know that. Certainly with some of the underground Bernie that may be going on it it may take a little bit longer but at least she says some of the smelled the smoke particles in the air can be rained out because of the system all of this is. -- what we live with on on this planet you know -- only know -- and mother nature starts a marsh fire because of a drought area. An area is dealing with a drought and if -- with lightning and and now mother nature puts it out with a with a lot of rain. It would be nice to everything just balanced each other without having these big pendulum swings back and forth but. We seem to like the extremes down here in Louisiana you know we we go from the driest August ever. You know with about an inch to half of rain total for the whole month now -- sign off September with a stationary you know. Tropical system that's not moving in putting fifteen inches of rainfall around the areas that we -- -- extreme south down here in south. Well -- I'm -- I'm fraud here but I had -- had moved I'm I'm I'm back now I've lived all over the country but back now so this is my first tropical storm since moving back from after leaving in in 96 so. The storm has has baptized me and it's it. Brings back. It brings back fond memories of being expect kid to being also scared but also experiencing the excitement of of some hurricanes and tropical storms. What if He had at that Fannie growing up whether it's me was just fascinating and it's quiet too -- today. On the dot ten -- having at this same time you don't wish anyone to have to deal with this latest kind of exciting it is a little something different you know around here kind of breaks up I -- that. Pattern it's been breaking up the here whatever the truth of it as. This that's kind of how our planet works that mean we we know that tropical systems are gonna form. That's the -- designed to move the heat from the equator up to the polar took to the polls that's how distributes the heat and the energy. And so this is supposed to happen that you mean. Unfortunately out there effects of that especially people living in coastal areas you know it's not always a good effect but. This is how exposed to work and as this probably will be the last tropical system we're talking about somewhere in the Atlantic this year trying to Laura are you gonna get any sleep anytime soon. -- actually been doing really get it it goes back to my a benefit. That I have. I can't fall asleep at any given point of that day I could be in the middle of Tiger Stadium. During a football game and I could fall asleep so I'm really blessed with that if it.

Dave potter and you here in the studio to recover curators of what's going on an academic curriculum in the studio. All right we're coming right back before this is WWL. And you're part of our coverage here live on WWL as we talk about tropical storm Lehigh astute -- with a you can color show with the a. -- on anything the Q would you see as far as I know the streets are are are not flooding which is good news. However the worst of this is not over according to meteorologist Laura -- military channel four. Right now we're getting some light rain in downtown New Orleans but we've seen these these squall lines these feeder bands that come through here and sometimes it's very heavy sometimes it's. It's not so happy but if you're in night in an area where there's not heavy rain. There's still some rain to come because this storm is moving very very slowly just coming onto shore. And the -- is going to again there's no -- because it's tropical storm. The senator is gonna go between Baton Rouge and New Orleans and then head east right over the right over the North Shore of lovely concentrate so there's a lot still to come. The good news is the pumps are working are really throughout the state. And everything seems to be as as good as it could possibly be others and there's a storm surge there's some problems and look feet there's problems in. Lower Jefferson Parish there are some areas of this state that are being harder hit than others but they they always are when there's a storm like this and I had to get a text earlier -- -- has has some water in their house. I forget where this was but there are some areas where there may be some some water and houses in the New Orleans area things or things are as good as they could possibly be. However we have more rain coming it's the rain comes. At a rate of more than an inch an hour of the pumps are not going to be able -- And so areas that are prone to flooding as far as I know areas that are not prone to flooding are not gonna flight. But there's always that that possibility. On their that the pumps can handle an inch. Of -- the first hour. And then half an inch in subsequent hours after the first hour so if the rain at the rate of -- is is greater than that. Van. We're gonna have supply and you know where the flooding is stay out of it. Don't drive fast through it and again. A wide but you guys are more guilty of this then than women or whether it's a macho thing -- guys feel like I'm just. Discharge through here.
