Hurricane Laura (Weather)

It was almost as if Laura consumed the energy from Marco coz as it petered out Laura swelled to Cat 3 and is predicted to hit Cat 4 just prior to landfall around the Texas-Louisiana border. For an area that's not used to such a powerful storm, that's a worry.

On top of 110mph winds, up to 15 inches of rain is forecast for parts of north west Gulf coast, which is not massive compared to a Taiwan typhoon but it's relative to the drainage system which i suspect is not as good as Taiwan's. There's also a predicted storm surge of 15ft so that's gonna swamp low lying areas by itself.

All the ingredients for a major disaster here.
