HURRICANE DELTA:  A very dangerous and destructive storm will move into the southern Gulf of Mexico by Thursday.  It is expected to take a northerly turn and make landfall somewhere along the Louisiana coastline late Friday or early Saturday. The remnant low center should move somewhere into north Mississippi during the course of the weekend.  It’s still too early to pinpoint the exact time frame for the greatest impacts but some issues are possible anytime Saturday and/or Sunday.  Stay tuned…
