LUMCON cams recorded a nice sunset just after center of Zeta passed thru earlier: https://twitter.com/LUMCONscience/st...86237950623756 and this was water from surge inside where the stairs are earlier when it came thru: https://twitter.com/LUMCONscience/st...69581010460673 (This is at Cocodrie where landfall point was near).

At least 1 fatality due to down live power line New Orleans.

Surge obs:
(My own personal interpretation only, surge is on shore wind dependent and varies as winds shift during storm passage, highly changes with shape of coast). These come from here: https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/in...torm/Zeta.html

FL:
Panama City: +1.3ft
Pensacola: +2.1ft (rising, near Minor Flood stage)

AL:
Weeks Bay (E Mobile Bay): +2ft (rising, near Minor Flood stage)
Chickasaw Creek (N of Mobile): +3.3ft (rising, Minor Flood stage, nearing Moderate)
Mobile: +4.2ft (rising, Moderate Flood Stage)
USCG Sector (Just S of Mobile): +5.3ft (rising, Moderate Flood stage)
West Fowl River Bridge (NNE of Dauphin Island): +3.1ft (rising, Minor Flood stage)
Dauphin Island: +1ft (falling, peak so far +2.1ft)
Bayou La Batre Bridge: +5.3ft(rising, Moderate Flood stage)

MS:
Pascagoula: +6.1ft(Rising, nearing Moderate Flood Stage)
Bay St. Louis: +8.6ft (Leveling out/falling...peak so far +8.7ft, Major Flood stage)

LA:
Shell Beach: +2.3ft (rising, minor flood stage) (reverse surge earlier of -4.9ft!)
New Canal Station Lake Pontchartrain: +2.2ft, falling, peaked earlier at +4.9ft
Grand Isle: +2.4ft, level, peaked +2.9ft
Port Fourchon: +1.75ft, falling, some missing data but may have peaked around +3ft
Freshwater Canal Locks: reverse surge now at -0.38ft, peak was +2.73ft
Calcasieu Pass (Cameron): +0.6ft, peaked +1.7ft


Edited Pascagoula number, data error from gauge when I viewed it previously

Zeta weakened into a tropical storm over Alabama, and now has 60mph winds as it moves over Georgia. It’ll lose tropical characteristics as it reaches the Mid-Atlantic today. Storm surge is going down, but high winds, heavy rain, and tornadoes remain threats.

More than half a million Georgia Power customers are in the dark this morning.

I'm about to get some rain from it.
