SUMMARY: Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 10 to 24-year-olds in Louisiana, with rates particularly high among African American teens. A task force organized by Representative Edmond Jordan has been established to study these rates and find solutions. Suicide rates for Black individuals between the ages of 10 and 24 rose 36 percent from 2018 to 2021, while rates for white individuals in the same age group dropped four percent. The task force aims to understand the causes behind these rates and hopes to use the research to prevent suicides in other communities as well.

SUMMARY: In the southwestern Gulf, an area with a high chance of development is intensifying, with showers and storms near the Yucatan Peninsula expected to form into a tropical system by early this week. Another area in the southwestern Atlantic shows a low development chance later this week, possibly forming a small low-pressure area northeast of the Bahamas, influencing Florida and Georgia. Although there will not be direct tropical impacts locally, increased tropical moisture and breezy conditions are expected. The system could develop into a tropical depression or storm, moving toward northern Mexico or South Texas by midweek, bringing rain to southeastern Texas and breezy conditions locally.
