The National Weather Service says Tropical Storm Isaac should be a tropical depression by the time it reaches Shreveport.
The weather service is predicting 30 to 40 mph winds will be moving into the area from Toledo Bend to Monroe Wednesday night through Thursday.
Heavy rainfall is expected across north Louisiana, southern Arkansas and extreme east Texas.
The Times reports flash flooding is possible and amounts will range from 1-3 inches across extreme east Texas and northwest Louisiana to as much as 6-8 inches further southeast across east Central Louisiana.
Slidell police say a Picayune, Miss., man tried to force his way into a woman's home just as then-Hurricane Isaac made landfall.
The Times-Picayune reports 39-year-old Warren Reavis was booked Wednesday with attempted looting and possession of a burglary tool, in this case a screwdriver.
Detectives say the victim of the attempted break-in was watching the news in a back bedroom of her home when she heard a loud banging noise coming from the front. She went to see what the noise was, spotted Reavis allegedly prying at her backdoor, and dialed 911.
