    LH,

    This thing is like Audrey, with an extra two weeks to grow up. Audrey wiped Cameron clean, except the old courthouse. but Audrey popped up over night. Gulf States turned off the electricity around 6 AM, and Audrey's eye came over around one, but at 430 we had sunshine and clear skies.

    Carla is the standard for storm damage after landfall. Hope this one does not want to compete.

    Stay safe, my friend, and hope your mom is well.

    latest track I saw shows the eye passing to my east between Arcadia and Ruston (about 50 to 70 miles) around 1300 hrs which will help out.........I imagine there isnt much left of Holly Beach or Cameron, LA as they took a direct hit.

    All good in SL! My customers in Lake Charles are getting beat down though. They’ll recover fast, O&G always does. Stay safe.

    The damage is mind boggling
    What is also mind boggling is the number of stupid people who ignored the warnings and now expect help.
    I have been through enough canes to know what can happen, So had most of these people. Now they want to put rescue people at risk to help their sorry azzes.

    Peak wind gust was 63 mph at 10:13 hrs, barometer bottomed out at 29.43 but the eye actually passed about 70 miles east of me over Ruston.............2.11 inches of rain. The power grid in SW LA is devastated...........from Alexandria west and south you are very lucky if have juice this morning.

    We had some water but not much else. I said earlier if you’re on the clean side it’s a world of difference. People that were 10 miles away from Dorian in Abaco On the clean side we’re fine.

    Why does it seems like most all Hurricanes make landfall at night and on a high tide?

    I have asked that same question before. Especially the most destructive ones.

    All that badass surge they were predicting for Lake Charles actually went just east of there.........the eye actually hit due south of Cameron.......everything just east of there is marshland and uninhabited.........they really wont know for sure how high it really got.

    2.11 inches of rain! That's a pretty good soaking. We've only had 3.5 inches this year. Stay safe.
