Hurricane Laura shredded the Texas and Louisiana border and the devastation is far reaching. Bus loads of evacuees are making the trip to Austin. Homes are gone forever, people are displaced, momentos are gone….forever.

Hurricane Laura made landfall at 1 a.m. ET Thursday with extreme winds and an expected “catastrophic” storm surge in parts of Texas and Louisiana, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The center said Laura is an “extremely dangerous” Category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 150 mph — just 7 mph short of Category 5 classification. That would make Laura the fourth Category 4 storm to strike Louisiana in modern history.
