Tropical Storm Nicholas could bring flooding to Louisiana
VOA says U.S. weather authorities warned Sunday that Tropical Storm Nicholas will bring heavy rain and potential flash flooding along parts of the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Coastal areas in Texas and Louisiana are expected to see 12-25 centimeters (5-10 inches) of rainfall in the next few days, the National Hurricane Center said. The center also issued hurricane watches and storm surge warnings for parts of the Texas and Louisiana coast.
Some of the heaviest rain from the storm is expected to fall in areas of Louisiana recently devastated by Hurricane Ida. Though meteorologists do not expect the heavy winds that Ida brought, heavy rain and flash flooding will further impede efforts to rebuild homes and infrastructure.
