Hurricane Laura makes landfall in Louisiana with 150mph winds | Daily Mail Online

Hurricane Laura has killed a 14-year-old girl after a tree fell on her home as the Category 4 storm system smashed into Texas and Louisiana with 150mph winds, leaving 500,000 without power as people who did not evacuate are told to write their names on a piece of paper and ‘put it in a ziplock bag’ in their pockets.  The Category 4 monster made landfall at 1am with the strongest winds that Louisiana has seen since 1856 and warnings that the storm could rip apart buildings and penetrate up to 200 miles inland. Louisiana Gov John Bel Edwards reported that the state has one fatality from the hurricane.
