After making landfall as a Category 2 hurricane Friday night in southwest Louisiana, Delta was downgraded to a tropical depression Saturday as it moved across the state, leaving hundreds of thousands of people without power across the South and causing destruction in the town of Lake Charles weeks after Hurricane Laura made landfall there.
A tornado watch was in effect for eastern Alabama and west-central Georgia. Storm surge and flash floods continued to pose dangers across much of southwestern Louisiana and parts of neighboring Texas. Mississippi also got its fair share of rain overnight.
After moving across northeastern Louisiana, the storm is expected to cross northern Mississippi and move into the Tennessee Valley later Saturday and Sunday, the National Hurricane Center says.
