(CNN)Tropical Storm Sally is expected to hit the southeast coast of Louisiana as a Category 1 hurricane Tuesday morning, less than three weeks after Hurricane Laura caused widespread damage on the other side of the state.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards declared a state of emergency, and New Orleans officials have ordered residents living outside the levee protection system to evacuate. As the storm approaches, coastal parts of Gulf states are preparing for heavy rainfall and life-threatening storm surge. “The bottom line continues to be that Sally is expected to be a dangerous slow-moving hurricane near the coast of southeastern Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama during the next 2-3 days,” the National Hurricane Center warned.Officials “have every reason to believe that this storm represents a very significant threat to the people of Southeast Louisiana,” Edwards said, adding he has spoken to President Donald Trump and is submitting a pre-landfall federal declaration request.

Tate Reeves signed a preliminary state of emergency Sunday, The storm “is probably going to persist over most portions of the state for basically 48 hours,” he said.Louisiana still recovering from LauraSally comes just weeks after Hurricane Laura made landfall as a Category 4, causing widespread flooding and damage in southwest Louisiana and leaving six people there dead.It carried the same force as a storm from more than 150 years ago, the strongest to ever strike the state. Laura also destroyed power grids, and repairs are anticipated to take weeks, if not months, to complete, officials said.Derailed train cars lie on their side in Lake Charles, Louisiana, on August 29.Derailed train cars lie on their side in Lake Charles, Louisiana, on August 29.

Most residents live inside the protection system. Venetian Isles, Lake Catherine and Irish Bayou, which are not protected by substantial levees, could see storm surge of up to 11 feet during Sally, NOLA Ready, the city’s emergency preparedness network, said in a tweet.

— NOLA Ready (@nolaready) September 13, 2020 The city is preparing for Sally by distributing sandbags, getting pumps fully operational and signing an emergency declaration, Mayor LaToya Cantrell said Sunday.”This is potentially going to be a Category 2 hurricane impacting the greater area in the city of New Orleans,” Collin Arnold, director of the New Orleans Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, warned. “You should be gathering your emergency supplies, three days’ worth.”A mandatory evacuation has been ordered in St. Charles Parish, which is home to more than 52,000 residents and located on the banks of the Mississippi River.”This is a storm everyone needs to take seriously. We are likely to see tropical storm-force and hurricane-strength winds for longer than Hurricane Katrina, a storm surge of 4-7 feet and the possibility of 20 inches of rain,” St. Charles Parish President Matthew Jewell said Sunday. “We want residents to heed our warnings and make preparations to leave now.”
