Louisiana's capital is Baton Rouge and the largest city is New Orleans.

The state is bordered to the west by the state of Texas; to the north by Arkansas;
to the east by the state of Mississippi; and to the south by the Gulf of Mexico.

Louisiana is often affected by tropical cyclones and is very vulnerable to strikes
by major hurricanes, especially the low area around and in the New Orleans area.
The area is also prone to frequent thunderstorms, especially in the summer.

Louisiana is home to many distinct cultures, especially notable are the
Louisiana Creole people and the French-speaking Cajun.
