Powerful wind whipped up by Hurricane Delta sent metal roofing sheets flying in Sulphur, Louisiana, on October 9. This video shows Justin Weeks, the cameraman, dart back from his window as the heavy sheets bang up against his home.
The National Hurricane Center reported that Delta made landfall as a Category 2 hurricane at around 6:00 pm CDT. “Damaging winds and a life-threatening storm surge continue over portions of southern Louisiana,” it said.
According to reports, many residents along Delta’s path were still recovering from Hurricane Laura, which hit Louisiana about six weeks earlier.
