Hurricane Laura: Watch Live Webcams & Storm Chaser Streams as the Storm Makes Landfall

Getty Large waves as a result from Hurricane Laura crash on the beach.

Hurricane Laura is expected to make landfall sometime late tonight or early in the morning, near the Texas-Louisiana border. Of course, with hurricanes, forecasts can change so it’s a good idea to watch the storm on radar if you’re in the region. Laura could be as strong as a Category 4 hurricane by the time landfall happens. Here’s a look at live streams and webcams to watch the storm as it makes landfall.

Note that because of the storm’s approach, some of these live streams might go down as the storm nears.

Laura was at 29.0 N, 93.2 W as of 10 p.m., about 75 miles south of Lake Charles, Louisiana and 75 miles southeast of Port Arthur, Texas. Maximum sustained winds are currently 150 mph, and it’s moving north-northwest or 340 degrees at 15 mph. The minimum central pressure is 939 MB or 27.73 inches.

Here’s the NOAA’s report, issued at 10 p.m. Central on August 26:

At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the center of Hurricane Laura was located near latitude 29.0 North, longitude 93.2 West. Laura is moving toward the north-northwest near 15 mph (24 km/h). A turn toward the north is expected by early Thursday, and a northward motion should continue through the day. A northeastward to east-northeastward motion is expected Thursday night and Friday. On the forecast track, Laura will make landfall along the southwest Louisiana coast within the next few hours and move inland within that area early Thursday. The center of Laura is forecast to move over northwestern Louisiana on Thursday, across Arkansas Thursday night, and over the mid-Mississippi Valley on Friday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 150 mph (240 km/h) with higher gusts. No significant change in strength is likely before landfall. Rapid weakening is expected after Laura moves inland.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 km). A sustained wind of 43 mph (69 km/h) and a gust to 49 mph (80 km/h) were recently reported by a National Ocean Service station at Texas Point, Texas, at Sabine Pass. A wind gust to 58 mph (93 km/h) was recently reported at Cameron, Louisiana.

The minimum central pressure estimated from Air Force and NOAA Hurricane Hunter observations is 939 mb (27.73 inches).
