New Orleans under hurricane watch from Tropical Storm Sally

Depression to strengthen in Gulf; TS Paulette to intensify

Strengthening is forecast, and Paulette is expected to be a "dangerous hurricane" when it approaches Bermuda late Sunday and early Monday, the National Weather Service said.

The governor has declared a state of emergency in MS and said he has applied for federal assistance with President Donald Trump for additional aid. Showers and storms are in the forecast through midweek.

Hurricane Paulette is rolling toward Bermuda and expected to bring heavy rainfall along the coast beginning Sunday night, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Forecasters said Paulette would become a hurricane later Saturday and drop up to 6 inches (15 centimeters) of rain on the territory through Monday. "A period of rapid intensification remains on the table".

"Everybody should take this seriously, please understand that you should be moving now, acting now to get you and your family ready for this storm".

So the exact path the center takes is highly important.

Sally will sweep the eastern edge of the offshore production area, probably halting oil and natural gas drilling for a short time and adding further disruption to the industry, Rouiller said.

Chevron Corp. said Saturday it's evacuating workers and shutting in production at its Blind Faith and Petronius platforms. "Small craft" advisories were also in effect Sunday.

Tropical Storm Sally formed Saturday off the coast of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico, the National Hurricane Center said. However, the tropical storm will bring heavy rain to parts of the area.

Storm Sally is the 18th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season.

The Hurricane Hunter plane has not yet completed its pattern and should provide more information about winds associated with Paulette during the next couple of hours.

Rene will continue a weakening trend through the weekend and into next week as it turns toward the Caribbean.

"Flash, urban and minor river flooding" are possible in some areas, forecasters say.

A hurricane watch was in effect east of Ocean Springs to the Alabama/Florida border, while a tropical storm warning was in effect from Intracoastal City, La., to west of Morgan City and East of Ocean Springs to Indian Pass and a tropical storm watch was in effect for Indian Pass to Ochlockonee River, Fla.
