Good luck. Will be watching for your posts. Hope nothing too bad happens around you.

Max wind gust forecast

Up to 100mph gusts in Lake Charles (where they are still recovering from category 4 Laura) and up into the Alexandria area.

Up to 120mph gusts right along the coastline

Thanks.

Roofers have been working on houses around here, but still a good number of structures with tarps.

Fri 9-Oct 7aCDT,8aEDT
Winds 120mph(195km/h)
Moving N 12mph(19km/h)
Pressure 958mb
Center about 160miles(255km) S of Cameron, LA
Hurricane winds extend up to 40miles(65km) from center, TS winds 160miles(260km)

Likely peaked. Satellite presentation not as good and pressure is up some. Has made the turn North, or even just East of N. TS winds right next to the coast about to start moving inland, surge starting to rise some areas, your window to finish prep is almost closed now.

830aCDT,930aEDT: microwave imagery helping show the bottom half of Delta not as intense as before. Should start seeing the expected slow weakening trend begin shortly. https://twitter.com/jacksillin/statu...54600293306370
