NWS: Cold front moving from Texas into Louisiana

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Storms that could pack quarter-sized hail, tornadoes, flash floods and winds of more than 70 mph have moved into Louisiana.

Nearly all of south Louisiana and much of Mississippi are under a tornado watch, while a flash flood watch covers northeast Louisiana and most of Mississippi.

Meteorologist Bill Adams in Shreveport says the cold front is expected to move into northeast Louisiana and Mississippi in the late afternoon and early evening.

Donald Jones in Lake Charles says the squall line is intensifying as it moves east.
