Looks like Lake Charles got hit pretty good. Any reports of other surrounding damage? Around New Orleans? Anywhere?
Buddy near Alexandria got tore up pretty good, but house and them are fine
Lots of downed trees and powerlines
Hope everyone is weathering the storms.
@Heavysetrapier, you above water?
Yea we're good. The storm came on shore about 220 miles west of here and about 70 miles west of my family in Lafayette.
Weather people were saying 15 ft. storm surges and deadly winds and nobody was going to survive, end of the world kind of thing.
Yeah, that's what I was hearing too on the news.
TheWeatherChannel... 20ft. unsurvivable storm surge coming in exactly at the highest tide of the month with catastrophic winds, will flood past Lake Charles 50 miles inward...
This is what the news does instill fear and panic in people all for more viewers and higher ratings.
I stayed up till 4AM just incase the storm pulled a Harvey, had a mild breeze here zero rain.
I lived in Alexandria for a while, that state will be a mess for years.
Don't let the wife know what you spend on guns, ammo or cigars.
Got some trees down. Mostly black spruce (?), (really bid needles) saves the trouble of removing them. Almost cleared a path so the horses can get yo the pond. Hate those damm things.
