After making landfall along the Louisiana coast as a Category 4 hurricane early this morning, Laura has now weakened and been downgraded to a Tropical Storm.

According to the National Weather Service, the storm is still powerful with maximum sustained winds of up to 70 mph.

There is still heavy rainfall associated with the storm, and the NWS and the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency are warning of potential flash flooding across Mississippi for the remainder of today and Friday.

Strong winds and spin-up tornados are also a possibility on Friday, so continue to stay weather aware as Laura continues along its path.
