NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Forecasters say Hurricane Zeta is crashing onshore in southeastern Louisiana.
The National Hurricane Center says the center of the Category 2 storm is coming ashore around Terrebone Bay near Cocodrie.
Some roads already are underwater, and rain is pelting New Orleans to the north.
Zeta has sustained winds of 110 mph and is just shy of being a major, Category 3 hurricane.
Heavy rains and rising seawater are possible all along the northern Gulf Coast, and topical storm warnings extend through north Georgia into the Carolinas.
