Barry has been downgraded to a tropical depression after making landfall west of New Orleans on Saturday as a Category 1 hurricane.
Although Barry did not bring devastating flooding as some forecasters had originally thought similar to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, parts of Louisiana did receive more than 400 mm of rain which swamped the Mississippi River delta.
Emergency responders rescued at least 90 residents but there were no reports of fatalities.
Remnants of Barry have been moving northward with heavy rain across the American South up to the Midwest.
