Coastal residents in Texas and Louisiana who didn’t evacuate may face storm surges of up to 20 feet. “Know that it’s just you and God,” warned the mayor of Port Arthur, Texas.

More than 500,000 people had been urged to flee their homes as Hurricane Laura intensified in the Gulf of Mexico.

New Orleans may be lucky with the storm staying west of the city.
