SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Hurricane Laura is now moving north northeast through Central Louisiana. Laura will continue to slowly weaken through the course of the day, but is now expected to retain hurricane strength for at least several more hours as it presses into North Louisiana by midday. Laura will be weakening to a tropical storm this afternoon, but will continue to bring gusty winds and heavy rain to portions of the Arklamiss into early this evening. As Laura continues to move inland, damaging wind gusts and inland flooding are expected across the eastern two-thirds of the Four State region, while isolated tornadoes should remain more confined to the Arklamiss. Due to Laura tracking a little farther east than anticipated, it is looking like some locations in East Texas along and west of a
Jacksonville to Clarksville line will be spared the worst of the impacts.
