Live Hurricane Delta update:

Hurricane Delta continues to make steady progress towards the Southwest Louisiana coast. The latest advisory from the National Hurricane Center indicates that Delta is now moving towards the NNW. This could be a sign that the expected turn towards the north and northeast has begun. Maximum sustained winds have remained steady so far this evening at 115 mph. Delta will make landfall late early Friday evening just SSE of Lake Charles. It will then likely turn to the northeast tracking through Central and Northeast Louisiana crossing I-20 east of Monroe. You can see in the continuously updated loop below that heavy rain of two to over five inches and winds gusts of 30 to over 50 mph can be expected over much of the area. The rain will be heaviest and the wind strongest closer to the center of Delta’s track over the southeast quarter of the area. A Tropical Storm Warning and Flash Flood Watch are in effect for Natchitoches and Sabine Parishes.
