Destructive category 4 or greater strength winds are likely, bringing about devastating impacts across portions of Southeast Louisiana mainly along and to the west of the I-55 corridor including metro Baton Rouge, western portions of metro New Orleans, and the Houma metropolitan area. In this area, the National Weather Service warns of structural damage to sturdy buildings, some with complete roof
and wall failures. The National Weather Service says there will be complete destruction of mobile homes. Damage to all structures will be greatly accentuated by large airborne projectiles. There will be thousands of large trees snapped or uprooted along with fences and
roadway signs blown over; many roads will be impassable from large debris, and more within urban or heavily wooded places. Many bridges, causeways, and access routes could be impassable for an extended period of time. The wind will also knock-out power and communication for weeks, months, or longer for some.
