Tuesday evening tropical update: South Florida feeling first effects of Hurricane Idalia

SUMMARY: The content discusses Hurricane Adalia, the first hurricane of the season, which is set to make landfall in a flood-prone area of Florida. The good news is that fewer people live in this area compared to the rest of the state. Additionally, the content mentions storms locally, including a waterspout forming over Lake Pontchartrain. Flash flood warnings are in effect for the South Shore, but most of the heavy rainfall has subsided. Hurricane Adalia is expected to intensify and make landfall as a category 2 hurricane in the Big Bend area of Florida. It may also pose a threat to Southern Georgia and South Carolina before moving out into the Atlantic.

Hurricane Idalia is moving quickly northward and continues to strengthen. The landfall center still looks to be the Big Bend of FL, which thankfully is far less populated and it would be there that the strongest hurricane-force winds would be felt. Of course impacts will be widespread across much of the peninsula. The storm is expected to weaken as it continues inland toward eastern GA and possibly SC. After that, most models keep the remnants in the Atlantic. However, there are a few ensemble members of the GFS which take the remnants into the Gulf late next week. Far too soon to know if that would happen and if so, what would…if anything…develop. The runs that do bring it back to the Gulf maintain it just as a wave and rain-maker. Stay tuned!

WWL-TV Chief Meteorologist Chris Franklin talks latest on Hurricane Idalia, as well as heavy thunderstorms sweeping across New Orleans Metro on Tuesday, Aug. 29.

SUMMARY: A Lafayette couple, Chad and Jennifer Landry, has shared their inspiring journey of overcoming drug addiction. Chad began using crack cocaine and alcohol at age 12 to cope with abuse, leading to years of addiction and imprisonment. He met Jennifer, his future wife, at a work-release facility, and they married a month before his release. Despite societal backlash, Jennifer's unwavering support and multiple support groups helped Chad achieve sobriety over three years ago. Now certified life coaches, they run a nonprofit, Speaking to Inspire Through Experience, and Jennifer has authored “A Partner's Journal for Healing” to help others battling addiction.

Chad Landry said his drug addiction has been a slippery slope for him; he said meeting the love of his life, Jennifer Landry, helped him realize there are more important things in life.
