New Orleans officials asked people to keep at least three days of supplies on hand and to keep their neighborhood storm drains clear so water can move quickly.

The system won't have any direct impact on the Tampa Bay area.

Barry is the second named Atlantic storm of the year. The first named storm of the season, Subtropical Storm Andrea, formed in the Atlantic Ocean back in May but quickly died out.
