Per NWS WPC another 4-8in poss near where center travels this evening, including Alexandria. https://origin.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/met...d=0815&yr=2020

Tornado risk is currently highest near the LA/MS border region late afternoon / early evening. https://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/md/md1728.html (tornadoes are common in hurricanes, mainly in the NE corner/quadrant.

What a flop it turned out to be as it got in that colder water. That killed it fast and upper level shear also did it's part.

Conditions seem to be deteriorating here with stronger wind gusts coming in. I still have power but I heard of some outages.

Fri 9-Oct 8pCDT,9pEDT
Winds 85mph(140km/h)
Moving NNE 15mph(24km/h)
Pressure 971mb
Center about 15miles(25km) WSW Jennings, LA
Center about 20miles(35km) ENE Lake Charles, LA

What's left of the eye-wall just North of i10 now and the SW backend corner of the storm look to be packing the most winds. On that SW backside corner even Cameron, LA reporting 70mph sustained winds and gust to 86mph while ago. Per storm chasers and Weather Channel looks like a classic disorganized eye with multiple random gust around it.
