Hurricane Laura Cone

Flooding Rainfall Spreading Inland Over Louisiana, Update on Warnings and LIVE Stream

August 27, 2020

By: Staff Report:

SHREVEPORT, LA. – Unsurvivable storm surge with large and destructive waves will cause catastrophic damage from Sea Rim State Park, Texas, to Intracoastal City, Louisiana, including Calcasieu and Sabine Lakes. This surge could penetrate up to 40 miles inland from the immediate coastline, and floodwaters will not fully recede for several days after the storm.

LIVE STREAM OF HURRICANE DAMAGE HERE

Hurricane-force winds will continue this morning in portions of the hurricane warning area, with catastrophic wind damage expected near Laura’s eyewall. Hurricane-force winds and widespread damaging wind gusts will continue to spread well inland into portions of extreme eastern Texas and western Louisiana throughout the day.

Widespread flash flooding along small streams, urban areas, and roadways is expected across portions of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas. This will also lead to minor to moderate freshwater river flooding. The heavy rainfall threat and flash and urban flooding potential will spread northeastward into the middle-Mississippi, lower Ohio, Tennessee Valley, and Mid-Atlantic States Friday and Saturday.
