Trump warns of flooding after Barry reaches Louisiana

United States President Donald Trump warned on Sunday that Louisiana is at risk of major flooding after tropical storm Barry made a landfall in the state a day earlier.

"A big risk of major flooding in large parts of Louisiana and all across the Gulf Coast. Please be very careful!" Trump tweeted.

Barry was briefly categorized as a Category 1 hurricane but was downgraded to tropical storm shortly before it reached Louisiana on Saturday. However, the National Hurricane Center warned the storm remained dangerous despite the weakening.
