retrograded westward from Florida into the Gulf
of Mexico. By the 12th, a depression formed in the Bay of Campeche in connection with this upper level low. The
depression moved northward, becoming a tropical storm, and made landfall across southeast Louisiana on the 13th.
Heavy rains fell east of its track across southeast Louisiana and the remainder of the central United States Gulf coast.
The graphics below show the storm total rainfall from the storm. Rainfall data was provided by the National Climatic
