Lafayette, La., 10 miles southwest of Breaux Bridge, was hit with hail Sunday, and the weather service was predicting strong winds and up to 3 inches or more of rain into Monday. "There's also a significant risk for tomorrow in MS into southern Alabama and so on as the system keeps moving". The storm roared near but did not damage several other homes and a high school, Maj.
