I was expecting stronger when I got up this morning, but this is definitely over my guess. We need an EWRC and fast. Main hurricane levees are at risk at this level. Any more strengthening will not help in that regard.

We have less than 7 hours until landfall. Given the current radar and recon info i dont see how we get an EWRC started in that short of a time.

Grand Isle Louisiana has rapidly rising waters, per Weather Channel.   Webcam is sickening...

They’re at 7 ft ASL. I don’t think much that isn’t reinforced will be left standing.
