About 200 National Guard troops will be deployed to southeastern Louisiana, along with 63 high-water trucks, 39 boats, and 4 helicopters, Edwards announced.

The storm is forecast to come ashore late on Tuesday near the border between Louisiana and Mississippi, and drop up to 8 inches of rain in some areas.
