(NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE) – Strong thunderstorm moving north affecting upper Jefferson Parish…Orleans Parish…St. Charles Parish…
At 415 PM CDT…National Weather Service meteorologists detected a strong thunderstorm near New Orleans…or about over Bridge City…moving north at 10 mph.
The strong thunderstorm will affect areas in and around…New Orleans…Kenner…New Orleans Armstrong Airport and Metairie.
The primary threat from this storm is pea to dime size hail. Seek shelter in a safe home or building until this storm has passed.
This storm could produce rainfall amounts of one to two inches in a short period of time…resulting in ponding of water around low lying roadways. Remember…do not drive your vehicle into water covered roadways. The depth may be too great to allow a safe crossing.
