Tropical Storm Sally to be Category 2 hurricane with 100-mph winds - official

HOUSTON (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Sally is expected to become a Category 2 hurricane with 100-mile-per-hour (161-kph) winds by the time it makes landfall in southeast Louisiana on Tuesday, an official with the U.S. National Weather Service said on Sunday.

The storm will move slowly across southeast Louisiana, possibly bringing flooding rains to New Orleans, which lies below sea level, said Benjamin Shaw, meteorologist-in-charge of the National Weather Service office in New Orleans.
