As Hurricane Delta approaches Louisiana, two southern Catholic Charities are preparing for the impact of another hurricane landfall this season.
Tropical storm level winds hit Texas and southwestern Louisiana Friday morning and the hurricane is projected to make landfall this evening near Cameron, Louisiana - the same location Hurricane Laura struck around six weeks ago.
Earlier today, Hurricane Delta sustained category 3 winds of 115 mph. According to CBS, the hurricane has since dropped to category 2 with winds of 110 mph, but the storm is still expected to produce dangerous storm surges, which may reach 11-feet in some areas.
Cameron and other nearby areas are still recovering from Hurricane Laura, which is estimated to have caused up to $12 billion damages to over 500,000 insured properties.
