At 1000 AM CDT, the center of Hurricane Delta was moving
northwestward near 15 mph through open waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
A general northwestward motion with a reduction in forward speed is
expected through early this morning. Delta should continue along
this track today, before speeding up and turning more to the
north-northeast on Friday. The forecast for Delta has not changed
much since last night and is still predicted to make landfall along
the coast of southwestern Louisiana early Friday evening.


The Delta Regional Authority announced three new Louisiana graduates of the Delta Leadership Institute (DLI) Executive Academy. The DLI works to create jobs, build communities, and improve lives across the Mississippi River Delta region and the Black Belt of Alabama.

Authorities are investigating the death of an Arkansas man who was fatally shot by a deputy near a Mississippi Delta casino. Washington County Deputy Coroner Charles Bell says 31-year-old Joshua Worth of Junction City, Arkansas, died around 2 a.m. Tuesday at Harlow's Casino in Greenville.

Mississippi Bureau of Investigation spokesman Capt. Johnny Poulos says Worth was shot by a Washington County sheriff's deputy. It's unclear what sparked the shooting.
