Tropical Storm Karen Update

Statement about Tropical Storm Karen

October 4, 2013, 12:30 p.m. CST

The New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau continues to monitor Tropical Storm Karen in the Gulf of Mexico, and remain in constant communication with Mayor's Landrieu's office and local officials.

Most models indicate projected landfall east of New Orleans somewhere along the Gulf Coast of the United States on Sunday morning, with two to four inches of rain anticipated and sustained winds of 25-35 mph, with gusts of 35-45 mph. Mayor Landrieu has issued a precautionary State of Emergency for the city of New Orleans in order to provide maximum flexibility and resources for any situation that arises.  

Hurricane watches are in effect for the coastal areas of Louisiana such as Grand Isle, which is nearly 100 miles south of the New Orleans area. New Orleans is under a tropical storm watch, which means that tropical-storm conditions (rain and wind) are possible within the area.

The weather forecast for New Orleans calls for a 50 percent chance of rain on Saturday and a 40 percent chance of rain on Sunday.

The New Orleans CVB expects no disruptions to scheduled meetings, events or tourist activities. The airport is operating normally. It is business as usual. We will keep you posted as the situation develops.
