It's been a relatively quiet storm season, but Tropical Storm Karen is expected to bring winds and heavy rains to the Gulf Coast region this weekend.

States of emergency have been declared in Louisiana, Mississippi and part of Florida.

In advance of the storm, traffic was halted at the mouth of the Mississippi River, and the New Orleans Saints are leaving early for their game Sunday in Chicago against the Bears.
