Yeah that nw quadrant of the Gulf will take a while to recover but I don’t think the rest of the Gulf will have too much of a problem recovering.
Yep! Only referring to the area impacted by Laura. :)
The ridging over the Atlantic looks scary for the Gulf.
Certainly something to watch!

I prefer it that way, for sure. I just don’t want majors making landfall.

For the most part, yes. Well south of 10 and west of 45 anyway.

I can't believe how intense this has become this close to landfall. Atleast Katrina peaked mid-day and hit the next morning. Laura is peaking super-close to landfall.

Cameron landfall?
Yeah. I said that yesterday. Looks like it’ll verify.
It would have to go N to hit Cameron. its still has a NW jog.

More inner-core lightning in #Laura, with the structure very suggestive of Wavenumber-2 mesovortices forcing convective bursts. What a powerful storm. pic.twitter.com/h9EDQhwRnH

I think if you want to get down to the exact spot, Constance Beach may be a good bet.

If it stays on a NW jog for much longer, where would Laura make landfall?

I guess if you extrapolate it NW, then I would suppose Chambers County....but it will start its northward turn soon
