Houston meteorologist leads team to verify Hurricane Laura’s storm surge
– Hurricane Laura made landfall in southwest Louisiana nearly three weeks ago. The category-four storm tied the record as the strongest hurricane to ever make landfall in Louisiana. While meteorologists forecasted a 15- to 20-foot storm surge from Laura. National Weather Service meteorologist Jeffry Evans was part of a team that conducted a damage assessment to verify the storm surge in the region. “It’s what they call an unsurvivable storm surge," said Evans.
