Episode Narrative Tropical Storm Lee made landfall south of Intracoastal City in Vermilion Parish on September 4th. No deaths or injuries were reported. Storm total rainfall ranged from 3 to 10 inches, with the highest amounts recorded in central Louisiana (a co-op station near Alexandria recorded 10.96 inches). Due to inland flooding, a few state roads were closed in Avoyelles Parish, and one home in Acadia Parish had water enter it. The highest sustained wind of 30 knots (35 mph) was recorded at Lafayette Regional Airport. The highest wind gust of 43 knots (50 mph) was recorded at LSU Dean Lee near Alexandria. There were scattered power outages and isolated trees blown down across the region, with a few homes having trees land on them. The lowest sea-level pressure was 987.5 mb at Acadiana Regional Airport near New Iberia. The maximum tide was 5.82 ft MLLW, which was 4.76 ft above normal. This resulted in roads and low elevations in Cypremort Point to be flooded with 2-3 feet of water for a few hours in the morning of September 4th. Minor coastal flooding also occurred in Cameron Parish near Holly Beach, where water approached Highway 82, and near Delcambre along the Vermilion/Iberia Parish line where water covered local roadways and property. One tornado was reported in Lafayette Parish, briefly touching down in a field and doing no damage. Total property damage was $270K.
Event Narrative Scattered power outages were reported due to a few trees blown down across Vernon Parish.
