“This is a PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION. TAKE COVER NOW!” read the warning.

“Flying debris may be deadly to those caught without shelter. Mobile homes will be destroyed. Considerable damage to homes, businesses, and vehicles is likely and complete destruction is possible.”

Video and photos from the ground already show significant damage by the storm with debris filling the street. Some parishes in the area are expected to face strong winds of 136mph and above.

Flooding rain is also a possibility in some areas, with a flood watch in effect in certain places.

Louisiana residents were warned Monday night to prepare for the possibility of tornadoes in the the region.

“There is no safe shelter in a mobile home during a tornado, said the NWS in New Orleans op Twitter.

“Seek shelter in a provided space within your mobile home community or seek shelter with friends or family who live in a nearby house or apartment. Last resort is to lie low and flat on the ground.
