Internet2 is preparing for the potential impacts of Tropical Storm Barry and its impact on southern and southeastern Louisiana. Winds and rain have started and the eye is projected to make landfall this evening/night of Friday, July 12.

Per the National Hurricane Center, this storm is expected to result in long duration heavy rainfall and flood threat along the central Gulf Coast and inland through the lower Mississippi Valley through the weekend into early next week. We will be monitoring the progress of the storm as it develops and until the danger of additional damaging effects has dissipated.

The Internet2 NOC is actively monitoring/managing network changes in anticipation of potential outages and reduced resiliency along the central Gulf Coast. An internal NOC ticket has been opened (PRB0042991) to track all storm related activities and to provide a tie-back for member tickets opened as a result of the potential storm impacts.

The Internet2 NOC is reachable 24 hours a day, 365 days a year:

We encourage all of our members and partners to please take all appropriate precautions and make any necessary preparations. As the weather can be unpredictable, we will continue to monitor the situation closely to determine what impacts may arise to our campus members and regional network partners in the storm path. We will continue to update this page as information changes or becomes available.

Our thoughts are with everyone that may be affected by Tropical Storm Barry.
