After a brief spell as a hurricane, Barry continued to churn a swath of flooding and torrential rain from Louisiana and Mississippi to eastern Arkansas.

Details: The National Weather Service issued flash-flooding warnings on Saturday for the Louisiana and Mississippi coasts, as the storm brings with it torrential rain and potentially "life-threatening flooding" — which the National Hurricane Center forecast could continue into the middle of the coming week. On Sunday, Barry was downgraded from a tropical storm to a tropical depression.
