Floods hit New Orleans with Gulf Coast residents bracing for two feet of rain as Tropical Storm Barry forms offshore amid warnings it could turn into a HURRICANE and make landfall by weekend

New Orleans' famous Bourbon Street has flooded after a surge from Tropical Storm Barry topped the city's levees.

Cars were partly submerged and residents had to wade through floodwaters carrying their children after Wednesday's flood.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said Wednesday that a disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico has a 90 percent chance of strengthening into a tropical storm by Thursday.

Tropical Storm Barry may even develop into a hurricane by the end of the week with landfall expected over the weekend, officials said.
