The storm had continued to intensify on Wednesday, after exploding into the first major hurricane of the 2020 Atlantic season in the morning. Laura is an extremely dangerous Category 4 storm, packing maximum sustained winds of 140 mph. The eye of Laura was about 200 miles south-southeast of Lake Charles, Louisiana, at 1:00 p.m. CDT Wednesday, moving northwestward at 16 mph.

Forecasters expect Laura to make landfall near the Texas-Louisiana border as a Category 4 hurricane, but it could even reach Category 5 strength (wind speeds of 157 mph or greater) for a time as it moves over bath warm waters in the Gulf of Mexico.
