I sure feel sorry for those 150 people who refused to evacuate in Cameron Parish. It is going to be a nightmare of a time for them.

The NWS radar just South of Lake Charles has stopped transmitting data just as the northern eyewall reached it just before 2aEST/1aCDT and also the Fort Polk radar has now stopped transmitting.

Conditions haven't deteriorated that much here yet but probably won't be much longer before they do. I just woke up from sleeping briefly.

Thinking we will get the worst conditions in Alexandria from 3:00-7:00. I'm guessing the eyewall will miss me to the west unless it jogs east.

Surge obs Wed 26Aug 2amEDT/ 1aCDT

We only have a few gauges in these regions.

Listed East to West from near New Orleans to just S of Houston. Values are my own interpretation of the gauges from here: https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/in...orm/Laura.html Values don't represent peak unless specifically stated.

-Eugene Island: +4.6ft, rising, minor flood stage (peak so far)
-Freshwater Canal Locks: Lost data feed at 4.5ft earlier
-Lake Charles: +1ft, quickly falling, reverse surge occuring with eyewall
-Bulk Terminal (Just SW of Lake Charles): +1.6ft, quickly falling, reverse surge occuring with eyewall
-Calcasieu Pass: +9ft, quickly rising, Major flood stage (peak so far)
Texas:
-TX Point/Sabine Pass: +2ft, quickly falling with eyewall passing
-Port Arthur: +0.5ft, quickly falling with eyewall passing
-Rainbow Bridge (NE of Port Arthur): +.01ft, quickly falling with eyewall passing
-High Island: +2.1ft, rising
-Rollover Pass: +3.8ft, rising
-Morgans Point: +2ft, steady
-Eagle Point (Galveston Bay): +2.7ft, steady
-Galveston Bay Entrance, North Jetty: +2.3ft, falling, Minor/Moderate Flood stage (peak 3.2ft)
-Galveston Pier 21: +3.1ft, falling, Minor flood stage (peak 3.9ft)
-Galveston Railroad Bridge: +3.1ft, steady

I’m in Carencro, Northern part of Lafayette Parish. Two hours ago we had a power blink. Checked local news reports and many roads are flooded and reports of wire on the road. Can’t see out the window to the backyard due to wet window screens including the window under the covered patio.
