LCH extends Flood Warning for the Sabine River near Bon Wier [TX] till further notice
Cool and dry air will continue overspreading the area, pushing out any remaining clouds overnight. Morning low temps in the mid 50s to low 60s will make way for sunny skies and temps in the low 80s. Expect mild northeast winds 5 to 10 mph.
High pressure will migrate down into our area, keeping our skies clear tonight and tomorrow. Temps will hover in the upper 50s inland and in the lower 60s towards the coastline. Variable winds with speeds 5 to 10 mph are expected overnight and into tomorrow.
An extreme wind warning is in effect for Beaumont TX, Lake Charles LA, Port Arthur TX until 1:00 AM CDT for extremely dangerous hurricane winds. Treat these imminent extreme winds as if a tornado was approaching and move immediately to an interior room or shelter NOW!.
Only a couple of hours remain to protect life and property! Unsurvivable storm surge with large and destructive waves will cause catastrophic damage from Sea Rim State Park, Texas, to Intracoastal City, Louisiana, including Calcasieu and Sabine Lakes #lawx #txwx #HurricaneLaura
Laura continues to move northward as a Category 2 Hurricane. Maximum sustained winds are at 100 mph. Heavy rain continues across much of our area away from immediate coastal areas, and we continue to monitor the potential for flash flooding. #lawx #txwx
After months of incredible work by @NEXRADROC in repairing the Hurricane Laura ravaged KLCH radar, test data is beginning to flow! While quality can't be assured and the radar remains in a non-operational status at this time, the hope is it'll return to normal soon! #lawx #txwx
We have created a very preliminary tornado damage path for the Alexandria tornado based on the radar signature. The path length has been estimated at 63 miles. One fatality has been confirmed by the Vernon parish sheriff's office and several more have been rumored. ~ Donald
As hurricane Laura continues to move out of the region, it is very important that you remain safe. Avoid flooded roads, downed power lines and damaged structures, check for gas leaks and do not use a generator inside your home. For more information visit
