…LIFE-THREATENING SURGE AND STRONG WINDS CONTINUE FROM ZETA OVER
SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA…

Don’t venture outside when the calm eye of the hurricane passes
over, as dangerous winds will return very quickly when the eye
moves away. Stronger winds, especially in gusts, are likely on
high rise buildings.

A WeatherFlow station in Harahan, Louisiana recently reported
sustained winds of 56 mph (90 km/h) and a gust to 75 mph (120
km/h).

An elevated station at Bayou Bienvenue reported sustained winds of
88 mph (142 km/h) and a gust to 112 mph (180 km/h).

An unofficial weather station near Lake Hermitage reported
sustained winds of 64 mph (103 km/h) and a gust to 86 mph (138
km/h).
