Laura in the Gulf of Mexico
      #101269 - Tue Aug 25 2020 07:14 AM

8:15AM EDT 25 August 2020 Update
NOAA hurricane hunter aircraft data indicate that Laura has become a hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 75mph.

Original Update
Laura is now forecast to become a major hurricane before landfall, and the Hurricane warnings have been extended west to San Luis Pass, which includes Galveston and the Houston area and extends east to Morgan City Louisiana. Storm Surge watches are up from San Luis Pass Texas to Ocean Springs Mississippi.

Laura is very close to becoming a hurricane and probably will do so by 11AM EDT. The forecast shows 115mph winds, but it is possible for Laura to strengthen more. Those in the watch area probably should prepare for 1 category higher than projected and hope for the best, as the trend is toward a stronger system, not weaker. For the watch areas, this means prepare for a potential category 4 storm. Storm surge along the coast will likely be a big problem at and well to the right of the landfall point.

Those in the watch areas please listen to local media and officials for more information in your area.

Further adjustments to the track are possible later today.

Also, Marco's last advisory has been issued and is out of the picture.

    Galveston has issued a mandatory evacuation this morning.

    The 8am advisory is out, and just after it came out a recon pass suggests a hurricane upgrade, so not sure if they'll issue a special statement or wait until 11AM.
