TROPICAL STORM CRISTOBAL — Louisiana residents are being warned to get ready for Tropical Storm Cristobal. According to the National Weather Service -- the storm is on track for a direct hit to the state by the weekend. While areas like coastal Louisiana and major urban centers like New Orleans and Baton Rouge are most at risk, during his press conference late Wednesday, Gov. John Bel Edwards warned all Louisianans should take.
"Everything in Louisiana will likely be impacted," Edwards said. "Obviously the further south, the more impact you can expect."
