Available Expert - Hurricane Laura batters the Louisiana coastline with an intensity the region has not seen in over a century

Thursday, August 27, 2020

Queen’s University expert Ryan Mulligan is available to comment on Hurricane Laura which came ashore around 2 am as a Category 4 storm near the Louisiana-Texas border. Now the U.S. National Weather Service is saying the storm surge, possibly higher than a two-storey house, could be "unsurvivable”. 

Laura is currently moving inland across the southeastern United States as a Category 2 hurricane.
