Steve Dresner with W T O p Live with us, Steve. What can you add to the report? As far as damage already done there in Lake Charles, and now you may have more Well, that's true, Dimitri. Let me update the figures and actually, yo, about three minutes ago. My power totally went out here in the hotel. I would be careful not to walk around. I do come inside for a bit of safety reasons, because at one point we did have 94 95 mile per hour gusts. The hotel here at the Golden Nugget did have generators in an elevator power. But now we're totally in the dark. What I can tell you is the updated figures for power outages for The entire state of Louisiana were just over 92,000 in the state without power in Texas were just over 100,000 people without power and I'll parrot down just a little bit as Faras, the late Charles area looking at about 29,000 people without power, so the conditions still are not good. We're blowing rain, horizontal rain. There are plenty of people the hotel but right now we're completely without power in this area. What storm Surge concerns do you have there? Right now. Things have been OK. The storm surges you heard in the CBS report. Is there keeping an eye on things, but no, no horrible flooding, so to speak, And you also heard on the CBS report. Folks around here are still for the most part recovering from Laura. Um, so it is a 12 punch. As far as getting through tonight and bringing you up to current situation. Once this kind of moves North North east and we're on the West side. Things will calm down, hopefully in the next hour But we're still the only with some tough conditions. Power outages, Dmitri allotted debris on the road ways You can't even go on any of the neighborhood street side streets. One of our technicians from one, the Power line Cos told us They have pulls down in a lot of these areas, so really, wherever you are right now is this storm hits? That's where you're staying for a while. I really cannot go anywhere. We're not isolated, You know, as Faras roads are concerned, but it's just because of debris and, of course again. No power no worse staying put here. Steve of just a final thought about anything unusual. Anything else unusual You've seen because debris on the roads that's pretty bad. It is pretty bad. Dimitri and again is I said before, folks around here are still recovering from Laura. Um, you heard on the CBS report Blue tarps every word, but you asked me about things that are unusual. I think this is the positive. I will tell you that many more people evacuated the area song What happened in Laura? And they did learn their lessons. Because is a city Sean in Hillary earlier today, I've not seen a long line of traffic on westbound I 10. I used the example like on Route 29 from Howard County to Montgomery County, Dmitri 47 Miles bumper to bumper traffic. Folks evacuating, so I think you can take a positive that a lot of people left the area. We really appreciate the update. Steve, stay safe there and we'll talk to you soon. Thanks, Dimitri. That's Steve Dresner. With W. T O p live on Skype from Lake Charles, Louisiana, he says just minutes before he came on the air. The hotel he's staying at has lost power.

"Was it was crazy to other people. A man was died of carbon monoxide poisoning as he was running his generator inside his home. And another man drowned when a boat sank during the storm. The devastations unbelievable, But it is interesting. As you see some of these homes that are built up on the stilts that are built really high. Some of them are still standing. They managed to weather the storm, and you can tell some of these homes were probably also built to hurricane standards. 150 Mile an hour wind standards because you could definitely see the difference between them and some of their neighbors. Who did not fare as as well. The other interesting thing that I want to get to hear is Oh, and by the way, there's also and you probably have seen this a chemical plant's on fire. Near Lake Charles, Louisiana as well, which is very close to where the hurricane came ashore. So now they're telling people if you happen to be there now, you got to stay inside because of this chemical plant that is now on fire, and a lot of the roads are impassable due to a water and a lot of debris on the road, so the situation just being even more complicated. Cajun Navy already has launched to respond to the victims of Hurricane Laura. Those guys are great, so it is now a depression. It's not even tropical Storm anymore. It's a tropical depression, but the Mississippi River flowed backward into Louisiana, which is apparently something that has happened before which I didn't realize and there was a video posted of barges having to fight the tide to go down River. Crazy. That is crazy. I mean, this is just the storms have so much power. I mean, that literally changed the flow of a river. Yeah, that's power. Yeah, that John Lewis is a research associate professor at the two lane by Water Institute, And he said the top of the river likely got pushed by the wind. Not the storm surge because the surgeon packs were not severe enough to cause the Mississippi River to reverse flow. Ah, and this has happened before It flowed backwards during Hurricane Katrina in 05, Hurricane Isaac in 2012, but also in 20 in 18 12.
