SUMMARY: A fire broke out at the Marathon Petroleum refinery in Garyville, causing thick black smoke and flames to shoot high into the air. The fire started near tanks storing NAFTA, a component used in gasoline production. Although much of the fire has been extinguished, firefighters are still working to address flareups and are conducting air monitoring in the community. A mandatory evacuation order was issued for a two-mile radius around the facility, but it has since been lifted. Residents have expressed concerns about the long-term effects of living near the refinery, citing previous incidents and the presence of chemicals. Marathon Petroleum has had previous issues with fires and chemical releases.

It started shortly before 7, Friday morning near a pair of tanks that store naphtha which is a component in the production of gasoline.

SUMMARY: Alberto is moving inland, causing coastal flooding to subside by tomorrow. The storm has shown better organization, with wind speeds increasing from 40 to 50 mph due to new thunderstorms near its center. Heavy rainfall remains an issue, particularly in Mexico, potentially causing landslides. Coastal flood warnings along eastern shorelines are due to strong winds. Another low-pressure system, Invest 92, is being monitored but is unlikely to develop into a tropical storm due to wind shear. Rainfall is decreasing, and other tropical systems are being blocked by an upper-high pressure, leading to rising temperatures and heat advisories.

Chief Meteorologist Chris Franklin says our rain chances are decreasing, but we could experience a few showers. Heat in the 90s returns next week.
