Satellite imagery indicates that the center of KAREN is no longer well defined and as a result it is no longer a tropical cyclone.

In New Orleans cargo operations continued at Port docks Saturday as Tropical Storm Karen weakened in the central Gulf of Mexico. The cruise ships, Carnival Elation, which was scheduled to arrive this morning, and the Carnival Conquest, scheduled to arrive Sunday, kept a safe and comfortable distance west of the storm and await reentry into the River.

"We have high hopes all cruise ship passengers will be back in port as soon as possible," said Gary LaGrange, Port President and CEO. "Port officials are ready to handle cruise passengers as soon as the Coast Guard and pilot associations deem it is safe to do so."
 
Nine cargo vessels remain at Port docks, some still working cargo, and seven are scheduled to arrive Monday.
 
"We appreciate the support and patience of all of our customers during this time," LaGrange said. "We expect minimal effects from Tropical Storm Karen and want to thank the entire Port community for their professionalism and efforts."
