On the forecast track, the center of Sally will move over the north-central Gulf of Mexico today, approach southeastern Louisiana tonight, and make landfall in the hurricane warning area on Tuesday or Tuesday night.
"That system is forecast to bring not only damaging winds but a risky storm surge", said Daniel Brown of the Hurricane Center. "Let's take this one seriously".
The Met Office said Tropical Storm Teddy is not expected to make landfall on the Eastern Caribbean, but it is expected to rapidly intensify into a powerful hurricane within the next few days and generate large swells which are expected to reach the Lesser Antilles as well as the north-eastern coast of south America by midweek.
People in New Orleans watched the storm's track intently. Shelters opened, but officials urged people who are evacuating to stay with friends or relatives or in hotels, if possible, because of the coronavirus.
MS officials warned that the storm was expected to coincide with high tide, leading to significant storm surge.

His comments came after Bahrain agreed to normalize ties with Israel as part of a diplomatic push by US President Donald Trump . It was captured by Israel in the 1967 war with Arab states but remains an area claimed by the Palestinians, who are Arabs.
The system was moving northwest at 8 miles per hour (13 kph) Sunday night. That storm pushed more than 3 feet (1 meter) of water into the area. The storm was 280 miles (390 kilometers) southeast of the territory Sunday morning. One is Hurricane Sally, which was just upgraded from a tropical storm on Monday and is "expected to be a risky slow-moving hurricane near the coast of southeastern Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama", according to the National Hurricane Center. The 20th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season, Vicky is expected to be short-lived, while Rene continues to maintain tropical depression status.
Sally was upgraded to a hurricane on Monday, the US National Hurricane Center (NHC) said, but its trajectory has shifted east towards MS, likely sparing some of Louisiana's refining operations.
Sally could produce rain totals up to 24 inches (61 centimeters) by the middle of the week, forecasters said. Once a tropical storm, Rene was forecast to become a remnant low Monday.
NHC says the system will slightly strengthen Monday and Monday night but is forecast to weaken Tuesday night or sooner. A mandatory evacuation was already been issued in Grand Isle, Louisiana, ahead of Sally.
All northern Gulf Coast states are urging residents to prepare.
