DELTA NOW A DANGEROUS CATEGORY 4 STORM HEADING TOWARDS LOUISIANA

Local News

Delta has been rapidly strengthening and is now a Major Category 4 Hurricane with 130 MPH sustained winds. Movement is west-northwest at 16 MPH. The storm is forecast to strengthen even further later today to at least 140 MPH as it moves towards the Cancun, Mexico region.

The current forecast track from the National Hurricane Center has the storm making landfall late Friday/early Saturday along the Louisiana coast with the New Orleans area on the worst side of the storm.

The Valley can expect increasing surf and coastal flooding threat later this week. Sadly the RGV will be on the far west side of Delta which means sinking air, lots of sun, temperatures in the 90’s, and no rain heading into the weekend.
