The governor of Texas says there could be an 'unsurvivable' storm surge as Hurricane Laura makes landfall late Wednesday or early Thursday along the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast. (Aug. 26)
GREG ABBOTT: The hurricane is going to be quite severe, very powerful winds with a strong impact. But it's important for people to know that from about 7:00 PM tonight until about 9:00 AM in the morning, it will be a little bit of a lockdown time period for the ability of rescuers and aiders to get in and to provide support for anybody in the local regions. This has been categorized repeatedly as an unsurvivable storm surge where it will be hitting. And that storm surge could continue inland for about 30 miles.
