Surge obs: Highest likely occurred East of Creole, LA, probably from Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge to near Vermilion Bay. Fortunately most of this area is sparsely populated. Curious how Pecan Island residents along Rt.82 fared though. The nearby Freshwater Canal recorded 9+ft surge, looks like gauge stopped reporting though.

Obs (my own interpretation of surge values from here: https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/in...orm/Delta.html )

From East to West, peak = highest seen so far, may not be final peak seen that location.
MS:
Pascagoula +1.3ft (peak so far)
Bay St. Louis +2ft (peak)

LA:
Shell Beach: +0.3ft (peaked+1.5ft)
SW Lake Pontchartrain +2.2ft (peak)
SE Lake Pontchartrain +1.5ft (peak)
Pilottown +0.75ft (peak)
Grand Isle +1.4ft (peak)
Port Fourchon / Belle Pass +1.5ft (peak)
Amerada Pass +6.2ft (peak)
Freshwater Canal Locks +9.3ft (peak, but data lost a few hours ago, likely went higher)
Cameron: peaked +6.5ft, now reverse surge with -1ft

TX:
Texas Point / Sabine Pass: peaked +4.5ft, reverse surge now at -0.75ft
Port Arthur +0.5ft (peaked +2ft)
Galveston Bay entrance +0.5ft (peaked +2.9ft)
Galveston Railroad Bridge +.8ft (peaked +3.1ft)
San Luis Pass +1.3ft (peaked +3.4ft)
Aransas Pass +1.8ft (peaked +2.2ft)

Surprised to still have power but getting torrential rainfall. Flash flood emergency issued for southern part of my parish. Hearing of houses getting flooded in the area unfortunately. I’m thinking strongest winds will come over the next few hours but maybe not as strongest as previously expected.

Sat 4aCDT/5aEDT: winds 45mph, gust in the 60’s. Any of those around 40mph or higher can bring scattered downed trees & power lines still. That appears to mostly be in Northeast LA, Southeast AR, parts of MS currently, spreading into MS more now, along with parts of that main feeder band coming up through AL.

All coastal Surge, Hurricane & TS Warnings canceled.

Feeder band from the Gulf bringing very heavy rains into Mobile now. Tornado Watch with this: https://twitter.com/nwstornado/statu...51307442720768

Never lost power through the storm other than power flickering twice! Seems like we got the strongest wind gusts after torrential rainfall subsided. A number of branches down but considerably less than Laura from what I've seen. Flooding was the main issue with Delta here. I had 13.07" of rain since Thursday (8.20" yesterday)! Radar estimates to my south of over 20" over past 2 days.

Sat evening:
Delta just another Low Pressure system now. Rain & tornado maker.

Several tornadoes across GA this evening https://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/md/md1736.html

Heavy remnant rain band may add a few more inches of rain against the S side of Appalachian mountains of NC, GA and parts of Upstate SC: https://origin.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/met...d=0819&yr=2020
