Hurricane Laura graded as a Category 4 danger

27th August: Forecasters say that Hurricane Luara is extremely dangerous as it makes its way to the US Gulf Coast.

According to reports, Hurricane Laura is graded as a Category 4 hurricane, with 150 mile-per-hour wind which is projected to make landfall early Thursday (USA time) near the Texas-Louisiana border.

Forecasters say it will bring extreme winds and ‘catastrophic’ storm surge to parts of Texas and Louisiana. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said: “extremely dangerous Laura would bring winds of 150 miles per hour (240 kilometers per hour) and destructive waves will cause catastrophic damage to Louisiana and Texas.”

Satellite images revealed the immense size of the hurricane as it made landfall at around 1:00 am (0600 GMT), while television pictures showed heavy rain lashing the coastal city of Lake Charles, and powerful winds uprooting trees.

Earlier the NHC warned Laura could pummel the Louisiana and Texas coasts with an “unsurvivable storm surge” of up to 20 feet (six meters), and that tornadoes could form at the southern edges of the weather system.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has warned that the hurricane is unprecedented and urged the citizens to get out of harm’s way.
