Major Hurricane Laura

Recommended Posts

These mesovorts on reed's stream are absolutely insane. He's on the fringe of the eye and just getting trained by them. Untrained eye sees wind gusts that are probably exceeding 140-150.

Awww... well, I suppose it's impressive the superstructure of the Wendy's sign survived at all. It technically did survive... That might have been earlier. 

It literally just came apart lol

Reed timmer just said Wendys is annihilated. Don't know if it's the same one.

I think that a lot of the streamers set up in the same parking deck. With concrete & steal & a view of LCH I bet most everyone thought that this was a safe & best spot. I have to go to bed now though. I'll catch up later this morning.

Reed's feed is pretty nuts. Those certainly look like little mesovorts around the edge of the eye (lull-burst-lull pattern with shifting winds).

Not a good spot for chasers expecting a calm. They'll get one followed by a stray 110mph gust.

Is Reed alive? Sheet metal is pounding the car and he hasn't said a word...

Good question. That sheet metal just smacked his windshield and not a word said lol

I’m pretty sure he jumped into one of the other SUV’s. He talked about needing to do so earlier if debris got bad

Its early but looks like wind will be the big story from Laura. I have saw a few different reports saying the surge hasn't reached Rita or Ike levels

Reed is in the producer's car right out of frame from the stream.

We get it. The surge in Cameron hasn't been as high as it was in Rita. Let's hold off til we hear about points further east.

Yes, Cameron to Lake Charles ended up dead on with the eye, which saved them from the worst surge but they are paying for it with the extreme winds.

NOAA has that same sites record as 15 feet with Rita.

Odd, that the “water level” max doesn’t even line up.

Guess so. These winds look ready to tip it over
