Hurricane Laura hits Louisiana and Texas

Texas, August 27:

Hurricane Laura pounded the Louisiana and Texas coasts as it made landfall as a Category 4 storm with a significant storm surge.

Hurricane Laura delivered a barrage of 150-mile-per-hour winds and a wall of water that was predicted to reach as high as 20 feet.

Landfall came after officials in Louisiana and Texas issued the gravest of warnings, sounding the alarm about a storm that, in many ways, could be one of the worst to hit the region in decades.

Landfall came after officials in both states issued the gravest of warnings, sounding the alarm about a storm that, in many ways, could be one of the worst to hit the region in decades.

The National Hurricane Center called the expected storm surge “unsurvivable,” and said that it could push as far as 40 miles inland.

Officials also said that low-lying areas facing the brunt of the storm, like Cameron Parish in Louisiana, would essentially be annexed by the Gulf of Mexico until floods receded.
