Friday October 9 2020
Hurricane Delta intensified a little more overnight. Winds were up to 120 mph Friday morning, with gusts to 150 mph. The north track puts it on the Louisiana coast later this afternoon, within a few miles of the landfall Category 4 Hurricane Laura made 6 weeks ago. It will be devastating, even though it may weaken a little before landfall.
The inland forecast will break the storm down, but heavy rain will reach the Mid Atlantic later on Sunday through Monday. All the info below:
