Storm could become ‘crescendo moment’ in Louisiana

NEW ORLEANS (BP) -- Southern Baptist Disaster Relief is preparing an initial response if the tropical system currently in the Gulf of Mexico develops into Hurricane Barry overnight on Friday (July 12), but floodwaters already have started to rise in New Orleans. "The water is almost as high as it can get within its banks at various points along the Mississippi River, and now they're waiting to get 15 more inches of rain," said Sam Porter, national SBDR director at the North American Mission Board.
