No doubt the eye looks larger than it really is because the radar isn't penetrating the eyewall very well.
But it still seems to show the center a bit east of Creole, LA.

Family is safe in Houston. 6 hours to get from Lake Charles to the state line.

I can’t believe we’re doing this **** again
My family evacuated to Georgia for Katrina. It took 10 hrs to get from Biloxi to Mobile. That's normally a 50 minute drive. I will
never ever ever do that again.

Took me far less time to get up to Ruston. The hardest part was I-10, until I could get to I-55N. Think that part was 3-4 hours. Rest was a breeze. Going North on the Southbound lane at about 80-90mph. lol

Well, technically, Quitman.

You’ll never evacuate from a hurricane again? Or you’ll never live in Louisiana again?
I'll never go east again if a Cat 5 threatens Nola. The vast majority of cars I saw had Louisiana license plates. My home is 47
feet above sea level and 17 feet higher than I-10. Flooding is not an issue. I had minimal damage from Katrina. If I do evacuate
it will be north. I'm not dealing with I-10 again.

Power in Lafayette is out. I lost power about 8:17 pm. Others lost power earlier. Curfew in effect until 8 am. At least where I am, there was not an extraordinary amount of rain. The principal issue was wind gusts.

With only 3 exit routes, there is no quick way out
This is part of my major concern with the near hits this season and last - people/govt are going to wait til the last minute to make a call
55 and I10 in whichever direction will be parking lots

If loss of power, falling trees, and just making a mess is it then I would say y'all did okay. I see that big tree on College Drive came down.


River levels are expected fall

Northwest Avoyelles parish (close to what was left of the eye) report:

I left my house and stayed at my brother's outdoor kitchen last night because Laura knocked out power at home. We kept power at the kitchen throughout the night. I woke up and came back home to check things out since the Cleco outage map showed I was on the edge of an outage area. I figured the power was out. Nope, it never went out, not even enough to make the clocks reset. I had a few leaky spots around windows and roof from Laura, but I had prepared those with towels. Didn't even leak despite all the rain. The kids and I did say a prayer of blessing for the house and sprinkled holy water before we left, so I thank the Lord for answered prayers. I hope everyone else has faired okay.
