Wednesday morning the National Hurricane Center released a new map or “cone” of path for the current unnamed storm.
The NWS out of Lake Charles followed that with this statement,
“A hurricane threat is increasing for our entire region.”
The exact timing, location, intensity, and specific threats are still developing.
People should be prepared for hurricane-force winds by Saturday, with tropical storm force winds starting on Friday.
Rainfall totals will be 10 to 15 inches along and to the right of the path. This will result in significant flooding.
Storm surge could be significant along coastal areas, depending on the strength of the storm.
Isolated tornadoes will be a threat Friday through the weekend.
