Unsurvivable storm surge with large, destructive waves will cause catastrophic damage from Sea Rim State Park, TX, to Intracoastal City, LA. Surge could penetrate up to 30 miles inland.
The National Weather Service are warning local residents to evacuate now because the surge will begin today, well ahead of the strongest winds.
According to the National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Laura is rejoining in the Gulf of Mexico and is expected to be a severe hurricane off the coast of Texas and Louisiana Wednesday night.
“Unviable” storm surges could form in coastal areas near the Texas-Louisiana border, which could affect up to 30 miles on land.
Laura is currently in a Category 3 hurricane, which is projected to turn into a Category 4 hurricane on Wednesday afternoon. The maximum sustained winds of the hurricane increased to 125 mph with stronger gusts of wind.
In a video update posted on Facebook Wednesday morning, NHC director Ken Graham said things are “changing fast here, but what isn’t changing is the fact that it’s going to be a catastrophic life-threatening event.”
Laura is expected to weaken rapidly after landing on Thursday night through Thursday morning, but the expected storm surge could still cause the most dangerous damage, the hurricane center reported.
If peak performance occurs at high tide, the water can rise between 15 and 20 feet along the Johnson Bayou to the Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge off the coast of Louisiana. Along Texas Sea Rim National Park, along La Intracoastal City, water levels can rise between 10 and 15 feet.
“Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge and tidal cycle and can vary significantly over short distances,” the NHC said.
