Transcript for Barry dumps more rain as flood worries continue
But first we begin with the flood threat as Barry moves north this morning. Eight states are on alert and the gulf is still facing dangerous rain. Rob starts us off from Mandeville, Louisiana. Good morning. Reporter: You know this lake. It was filled to the brim even before the storm. You can see from our drone shot just how angry it is right now. Hurricane Barry bringing even more water to this state, not to mention damaging winds that left a trail of destruction behind. This morning, the effects of Barry being felt as far away as Florida. In Panama City beach, beachgoers forming a human chain to help save two distressed swimmers caught in a strong rip current. Those monstrous undertows turning deadly for one person there. Head towards the beach. Reporter: 40 others rescued Sunday. The category 1 hurricane slamming communities from Louisiana and Mississippi north to Missouri with intense flooding and powerful winds, up to 60-mile-per-hour wind gusts ripping off the roof of this airport hangar. The hurricane swirling winds whipping up three reported tornadoes in the state. Downed trees splitting homes in half and power lines littering the road and utility crews restoring to over 150,000 customers. Up to ten inches of rain swamping parts of Mississippi and over a foot in Louisiana. The torrential rains inundaing road, homes and businesses. The tombstones at this cemetery entirely submerged. Some areas facing up to 15 Ines. Look at this wave action off lake pontchartrain. A full day after landfall, the storm surge just relentless. A good three feet of water still pushing into this neighborhood. Nearly 100 people rescued from high waters. This man and his dog airlifted to safety by the coast guard. This is still a tempest of sorts. Thankfully the surge has stopped. At one point during the height of the storm it was going 400 yards inland. If you think this is an early hurricane for July, you bet. The last time we had a hurricane hit Louisiana, make landfall was 2005 hurricane Cindy. The same year as you know of Katrina among others. We're certainly hoping that history does not repeat itself this year. The threat is not over yet, isn't that right, ginger? That's right. You can still see the circulation from Barry centered over Arkansas. Counterclockwise. Some of the heavier bands down to Texas so you've got flood alerts. Flash flood alerts up to Illinois, paducah, Kentucky, Memphis, Tennessee, included so who will edit when? Slow moving north to northeast. It'll start to pick up in pace as we go through the midweek but talking about rain reaching all the way to western New York and western Pennsylvania. On the order of two to three inches from what is left of Barry but some of the heavier bands from Arkansas to Mississippi today could leave six to ten inch. Wet start to the week. Thanks very much.
