Karen: tropical storm to touch US gulf coast

Tropical Storm Karen on 5 October 2013 touched the US Gulf Coast, with forecasters warning of weekend flooding and heavy rainfall in several states, including Louisiana and Florida. As the system swirled about 385 kilometres south-southwest of the mouth of the Mississippi River, authorities urged residents to stock up on essentials.

Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency in 18 counties to enable the potential deployment of resources as needed. A tropical storm watch, meanwhile, was issued for areas including metropolitan New Orleans, battered by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
