Tropical Storm Barry will be a weak category 1 hurricane when it makes landfall (Last NOAA projection I saw said it would be doing so at Marsh Island, well west of here.).

If these bridges can't survive ~70mph winds, somebody screwed up.

A storm of Hurricane Barry is about to destroy those lift bridges at Belle Chasse!
