Weather

MIAMI - A new tropical depression has just formed in the Gulf of Mexico. Tropical Storm warnings are now up for the U.S. coast from Mississippi to Texas. The storm may also impact Florida.

Louisiana's governor has declared a state of emergency as the depression lumbers toward his state, bringing the possibility of flash floods and stormy seas.
 
Gov. Bobby Jindal says the National Weather Service is not predicting a hurricane but says a tropical storm is likely and could dump 12 to 15 inches of rain onto coastal and inland areas over the next 48 hours.
 
Low-lying Lafourche Parish president Charlotte Randolph also declared a state of emergency. He says coastal parts of the parish might get up to 18 inches of rain through Monday.
 
Jindal says the emergency will last through Friday.
