Hurricane Laura is currently pummeling the Gulf Coasts of Texas and Louisiana with 150 MPH gusts. This is the most powerful storm to hit the Louisiana in 150 years, creating storm surges that have been deemed unsurvivable up to 40 miles inland. Absolutely frightening stuff. Last year I started a conversation on here about hurricanes getting worse and this year is no exception.
Touching quickly on the political side, this could create challenges for the Trump administration and have an effect on the election. COVID-19 + Black Lives Matter + Hurricanes = Potential political disaster for the Trump administration. Gonna be really interesting to see how all these different disasters affect what happens in November.
