The new 10 am advisory for Hurricane Laura is out, and here's the latest...

The new 10 am advisory shows Hurricane Laura ticking slightly to the west and is expected to strengthen to a Category 3 strength hurricane with landfall along the Sabine Pass according to Daniel Phillips from KATC.

Hurricane & Storm Surge Warnings are in effect for Acadiana with a 9-13ft storm surge possible.

Widespread coastal flooding is expected as well as damaging winds.

At this point, forecasters aren't sure if Laura's western tick is something we'll see more of. The next update will be at 1 pm.
