REGION: Tropical Storm Barry, the first major storm system in the hurricane season, threatens the coast of Louisiana as it catches strength in the Gulf of Mexico. The drenching rains will test the flood-control improvements made in the New Orleans shoreline after the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. Barry is expected to make landfall tomorrow morning, with locals already advised to prepare for "ruinous downpours" over the weekend.
