Anybody in its path?
Don’t you mean her path?
Up to Category 4 as of 1:00 PM. Very bad storm!
Isn't it, "Anybody in they path?" or something like that?

My sister. And Jay Hoeneck here, well he’s not here much anymore.
Sexist. Reported! LOL. IBTL! LOL!
Depends on which sex they decided to assign....
Jay shouldn't be in the path.
Here is a word I I have never seen in a NOAA bulletin:
KEY MESSAGES FOR HURRICANE LAURA
ADVISORY 27: 10AM CDT WED AUG 26, 2020
1. UNSURVIVABLE storm surge with large and destructive waves will cause catastrophic damage from Sea Rim State Park, TX to Intracoastal City, LA.
Emphasis is mine.
If that isn't a get-out-of-town-now notice.... Prayers for folks in the dangerous area...
My sister Laura lives in Panama City. It looks like she is going to miss this one (or vice versa) but she caught the brunt of Michael 2 years ago and she started to panic when she saw the likely path a few days ago. I also have a good friend that used to work for me. She opened her own vet clinic last year in Lafayette La, which is just to the east of the projected landfall.
This could be devastating, especially in the midst of a pandemic.
We're East of there and just started getting the rain bands. All of my wife's family live there though, some on the water, but they have all evacuated at this point, primarily to Texas.
This area is also the heart of the petrochemical industry and they've shut-in over 70% of the GOM crude/gas production due to the storm. Plus about 25-30% of the US refining capability is within Laura's cone of uncertainty. And depending on the damage offshore and onshore this may add to the existing shortages felt from the pandemic. What's sad is LCH has been going through a huge multi-billion dollar industrial expansion over the past decade and are/were just about to reap the benefits of that move. Most of the new stuff will be under 10 feet of water when this gets done. What's amazing is there are hurricane warnings all the way to Shreveport and TS Warnings into AR.
Just updated forecast to peaking at 150 mph sustained at landfall. I hope anyone affected here has been able to get out.
I live on Galveston Bay. We were in the bullseye till changes yesterday...eye wall will pass 60 or so miles to the East so on the good side and it’s a very compact wind field. Spent the last two days taking care of boats and house but as of now not even a drop of rain. Lake Charles and Cameron Parrish are going to get hammered...as well as the Golden Triangle.
Jay's not in the path nor the cone.
For once, he's too far to the left. ;-)
Port Aransas is down near Corpus Christi, they should be well clear.
ForeFlight has other uses..
Where’s everybody relocating this aircraft too that is in the path of the storm? How far away is “safe”?
You'd be surprised how many airplanes have arrived say in, Lake Charles. Strange aircraft always appear at airports in the path of a hurricane.
Just upgraded to a Cat 5.
Never mind. Misread a CNN alert saying she was near Cat 5 strength.
One of the historical METARs:
Day of month.......: 27
Time...............: 06:53 UTC
Wind...............: true direction = 110 degrees; speed = 85 knots with gusts of 115 knots
Visibility: 1/4 Statute Miles
Vertical visibility: 600 feet
Temperature........: 25 degrees Celsius
Let me guess: Henning sighting!
Well insured, no doubt.
Not to worry, Fox News declared last night that it was up to Cat 5.
I saw somewhere that a altimeter reading was something like 28.08 somewhere in the path. I dont think I ever heard a storm called unsurvivable before. Hopefully people are safe.
My father in law's house.
Capital One Tower in downtown Lake Charles, should be good news for the glass guy in town.
In this case, gender would be the correct word.
I like the word sex better. It suggests hope and maybe a cautious optimism.
This year only, it'll will transition from Laura to Larry after it comes ashore
Chemical fire in Lake Charles. So next thing we are going to run out of pool chemicals.
Some airport pictures from Lake Charles (KLCH) and Sulphur (Southland Field KUXL).
Those are terrible photos
Some of those hangars look like they wouldn't survive anything classified as a hurricane, looks like match sticks.
Why are those planes not flown out of the path? Out of annual? Mechanical?
A tornado is one thing, as those pop-up suddenly. A hurricane though is known days in advance. Wouldn't it be cheaper than deductibles and pay-outs to fly them away beforehand? Or are we just seeing the ones that couldn't fly out of there?
Perhaps in some cases, planes that were for sale for an extended period at unrealistically high prices? -Skip
