NEW ORLEANS (AP/WVOC) – After days of moving toward the Gulf Coast, Tropical Storm Karen has dissipated.

The system had been predicted to bring rain and possibly severe weather to South Carolina over the weekend after making landfall along the Gulf Coast.

But Karen weakened to a tropical depression off the Louisiana coast and forecasters expect the remnants to move generally east over the next day to two days.

Localized flooding could still occur along the Gulf Coast with rain accumulations of one to three inches.

Earlier Sunday, much of the Gulf Coast began calling off preparations and evacuations as Karen weakened and stalled.
