    It's really frustrating seeing conflicting info. On this same page people have posted from authorities who stated "very large size of Laura = potentially dangerous storm surge" and others that said "Laura is predicted to be a rather small hurricane at landfall".

    What the hell? Which is it? Very large or rather small?

    Large storm with very large storm surge, but small sustained hurricane wind field. Some are saying a 30-35 mile projection for the strongest winds.

    Nm- Looks like a large eyeball now. Ugh.

    Just because it's not Ike size doesn't mean its small.

    First time longtime.
    Where are we at? Looking good at the moment, or has it shifted back towards us? I literally cannot tell what’s going on.

    I’ll hang up and listen.

    So I was evacuating to Conroe but now staying because of my sister. Because of their businesses she is staying down south to check on one of their stores here while her husband checks on the store up north.

    She lives east of baytown and I’m in san Leon. Game plan is if the storm path moves East she and her kids are coming to sunny san Leon, if it moves west my wife and I are going to beach city.

    Tomorrow will be fun. Family first.

    Where is the forecast you have been posting from? Trying to figure out what's what because you said it moved West, while spacecityweather is saying a repeat of Rita is the most likely at this point.

    Edit: To Xero

    Set up a slickdeals alert for converse, then when you're in the area, hit the converse store at the outlet mall in Tx City. I rarely pay more than $20 a pair.

    Pay service. Most of the Medical Center uses it and bases most of their decisions off of it. I've found it to be very accurate. https://www.stormgeo.com/

    They do also use NWS Houston as well. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtJSXaj0dlyB6k-bLtBFokQ


    Spacecityweather is very good, imo.
