October 9 2020

Hurricane Delta reached Category 3 again in the Gulf of Mexico, but dropped a little speed as it approaches land. This is set to hit the same areas that Hurricane Laura devastated just 6 weeks ago. While this storm is not as strong, it is potent and hitting an already damaged infrastructure.

Hurricane Delta Update 5 PM (4 PM CDT)

Top winds were 105 mph. The hurricane force winds reach 40 mile from the center. Tropical Storm force winds reach 160 mph.

The eye of the storm, although not evident on satellite, is expected to be on land close to 7 PM.   The impacts will continue inland as this is eventually downgraded to a tropical depression.

In addition to local flooding from surge and rain, heavy rain is expected to reach the Mid Atlantic by the end of the weekend.
