Hurricane Delta Bringing “Life-Threatening Storm Surge” to Louisiana Gulf Coast

HeadlineOct 09, 2020

Louisiana officials are warning of a “life-threatening storm surge” as Hurricane Delta bears down on the Gulf Coast with sustained winds of 120 miles per hour. The storm is forecast to make landfall Friday afternoon as a Category 2 storm near Lake Charles, Louisiana — the fourth named storm to hit the area during this year’s unprecedented hurricane season. Just weeks ago, Hurricane Laura came ashore near Lake Charles as the strongest storm to hit Louisiana in over a century, destroying homes and leaving residents without power for weeks.
