Hurricane Laura

You all know that BC is in the crosshairs of Laura, right?
He lives in Nederland TX . Look at a map.
Surge is supposed to be pretty bad all along that strip of coast reaching as far as 30 miles inland.
I hope he got out OK or is safe sheltering somewhere

Sorry for the delay in responding. I'm ok!
Thanks for the concern Deimos!

I evacuated to Dallas, about 5 hours north and was away from home for 5 days. Spent all day Monday cleaning up and returned to work today.
Luckily for my town, Laura made a last minute turn before landfall, which was great for us, but horrible for Louisiana

I thought Delta missed you (sort of) ....it was farther east....smacked New Orleans and environs.
Although I guess you still got plenty of rain. (Send some my way please...SW is in severe drought right now)
Did you have to evacuate again?

Hurricane season lasts through, what , mid November? Those Gulf waters are still plenty warm. :-p

It was further east,but because, you know, this year the western part of the storm was bad, usually the left side is the "good side" there was a 90 mph wind gust not far from my house. Now I'm sitting in my nice warm house with no AC.

Hurricane season is june 1 to November 30
