MORGAN CITY, La. — Widespread damage is being reported in Morgan City, Louisiana, near where Hurricane Barry made landfall Saturday.
A roof was blown off of an orthodontic clinic and trees were knocked down as Barry moved inland.
"It's going to be a process in cleaning all this mess up," Barry Walker of Morgan City said.
WWL-TV in New Orleans is reporting that power is out for all residents and businesses in Morgan City.
Walker and his family are using a generator to power their home. Just down the street, it's a similar story for Dusty Slaten.
"We haven't had electricity, and you know in the heat of Louisiana you can't live without electricity," Slaten said.
BUSINESS DURING BARRY
Nearly all businesses in Morgan City were shuttered as coastal Louisiana braced for the arrival of Tropical Storm Barry.
One exception was Meche's Donuts Shop, where owner Todd Hoffpauir did a brisk business Saturday despite the pounding winds and pulsating rain.
Hoffpauir said he didn't plan to open at all. He arrived at his shop in the early morning to prepare dough for kolaches when police from the nearby department showed up to ask for coffee.
Hoffpauir said he didn't expect to have any customers because the weather was so bad. Instead, his store was packed.
Over the next five hours, Hoffpauir made 23 pots of coffee and countless doughnuts.
"I must have done a thousand dollars' worth of business today," Hoffpauir said.
