The US National Hurricane Center predicted that Laura would turn into a “category 3” hurricane that could cause devastating damage, with winds reaching about 185 kilometers per hour before reaching land.
Ed Rappaport, Deputy Director of the National Hurricane Center, stated that a major hurricane is expected to reach land late Wednesday or early Thursday.
Rappaport said that at the current location of Laura and along the route (USA) will follow as she travels to the Gulf Coast, the sea water has reached a temperature sufficient to form a category 3 or higher hurricane.
The crew of a “hurricane fighter” confirmed that shortly after Laura passed between the western tip of Cuba and the Yucatan region of Mexico, it turned into a hurricane of up to 120 kilometers per hour.
The Hurricane Center warned the public against “the dangers of storm surge, wind and precipitation”.
Thousands of people off the coast of Texas and Louisiana have been ordered to evacuate ahead of the approaching hurricane.
More than 385,000 residents in the Texas cities of Beaumont, Galveston and Port Arthur were asked to leave their homes, while evacuation orders were issued for thousands in the southwestern part of Louisiana below sea level.
Houston, Texas officials have asked residents to be prepared for a few days of power outages or the need to evacuate homes on the beach.
While an emergency was declared in the states of Louisiana and Mississippi, shelters where measures were taken against Kovid-19 were opened.
Effective in Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti, Laura killed 23 people.
American media reported on August 22 that two tropical storms, named Marco and Laura, were moving towards the Gulf of Mexico at the same time.
Stating that the two storms in question are likely to reach hurricane level in the Gulf of Mexico, the authorities warned that the southern coast of the USA could be damaged on a “historical scale”.
It was noted that the states of Texas and Louisiana in particular could be the target of these storms.
Phil Klotzbach, a hurricane researcher from Colorado State University, stated that since the beginning of the 1900s, two hurricanes have not hit the southern coast of the USA at the same time, and that this would be the first if it did happen.
