ABC, NBC and CBS concur. Looks scary. I’d be driving north.

A better question would be is anyone NOT leaving the gulf coast? Cat 4's are deadly serious storms.

I can't believe you're even asking this question. Get out while you can.

Bottom line: if any category hurricane is predicted to impact your area, bug out, get out, evacuate, vamoose. Storm surge is a killer. The disasters of Harvey should still be fresh in the memories of Texans.

The storm surge for Laura is expected to be at 20 feet in some areas. That's 14-15 feet above the average person's head.

Did I mention that everyone should get out?

Time to activate the Cajun navy since some people just can't get out and others won't get out.

I live 250 miles north of expected landfall region. I'm just asking to make some aware. I saw last night that lots of hotels north of Lufkin were allready full. There are quite a few RV parks up my way with spots today.

Most counties in the impacted areas ordered mandatory evacuations starting yesterday morning. Last night on the news they said if you hadn't left already, it's probably too late. Safe travels to those on the road.
