The timing of this one is impeccable.

Hurricane Laura Is Strengthening and Expected to Strike Upper Texas, Louisiana Coasts as Category 3 | The Weather Channel

Hurricane Laura is intensifying over the Gulf of Mexico and expected to become a major hurricane prior to striking the upper Texas or southwest Louisiana coasts late Wednesday or early Thursday. Life-threatening storm surge and destructive winds will batter the coast and a threat of flooding rain and strong winds will extend well inland.

Residents along the upper Texas and southwest Louisiana coasts should prepare now for a hurricane strike. Follow any evacuation orders issued by local or state officials.

Laura looks to be serious too.

Hundreds of thousands ordered to evacuate as Hurricane Laura forecast to hit Gulf Coast as a 'major' Category 3 storm

Filled up the vehicles and gas cans already. Never let any opportunity to jack up prices go to waste. Prices already going up in last few days in my area.

I wonder if Pat Robertson can see God’s hand in this . I mean if he could see it for all those other natural disasters, surely he can’t miss this one.

It is bad enough having to bug out without a pandemic. We have been through a hurricane, helped out with a few after. This is so much worse. Please accept our prayers and best wishes.

Thanks but we aren't ground zero. We are tail end and won't get anything but some wind and showers. I just gassed up because gas prices get crazy on the east coast after a hurricane for no good reason than they can gouge everybody except those at ground zero. Hurricane Effing Michael, however, did a massive amount of local damage we are still cleaning up. The rainfall out of that one was insane and not forecast to be even remotely that high so nobody was prepared for it.

Since this will likely overshadow Don's big night, it is kind of ironic.

Wasn't me who is turned a potential life threatening disaster into a beat Trump over the head thread. Adding to the bs should be allowed though.

Anyhow, stay safe.

Not sure who here is a God believer or not, but if I was, I'd be wondering by now if maybe He is not a Trump Supporter. :lamo

Sends Plague during election year.

Now sends Hurricane during his convention speech.

Asteroid on way for election day.

True. At least it's not making landfall in a high density population area.

I read that 500,000 have to be evacuated. I hope that effort is successful.

Curiously, a major hurricane striking a heavily-populated area in the US results in a jump in the GDP. Damages such as buildings lost to forest fires or homes and businesses destroyed by hurricanes, river flooding and tornadoes are not subtracted from the GDP, but the rebuilding effort is added to it.

So, be careful of accepting political claims about increases in the GDP in coming months.

Regards, stay safe 'n well. Remember the Big 3: masks, hand washing and physical distancing.

This storm has the potential to make Katrina look like a walk in the park, leading me to believe that God really does not like that Orange Buffoon in the White House.

Hitched up with WVUE FOX 8 Meteorologist Zack Fradella. We are evacuating Lake Charles. You should too. RIGHT NOW!!! I’ll see you back on TV once we make it to WAFB Baton Rouge. This is thing coming in as a CAT 5. KPLC is no longer safe.

Cat 4 or 5 has never made landfall inside that circle...never.
