Lili has done a crazy and unexpected stall 40 miles offshore in western Louisiana under Vermilion Bay. She's now down to 100mph. All the dramatics were for nothing. Those people must be giddy with relief!

No floods in New Orleans...

Just from the news here in Ft. Worth...
145mph, moving 17mph, stiking Thurs AM, around 8AM, Tidal surge of 17-20ft. moving fast, rain fall of 10", evaucated 350,000 people from Beaumont, TX, and 10,000 from the banks of Galveston. Going to have major destruction.
Us up here are going to have some rain, but heading after land fall to the NE, with lots of rain and flooding. Should be a Cat 5 before land fall. Prayers are with ya'all down there on the coast!!!!!!

Good News:

Lili's form has taken on a weird disruption and her pressure has risen to 948 from 940.

I think she's weakening before landfall, though she's still a very strong storm...

Lili has resumed a northward motion and is making landfall over Vermilion Bay, Louisiana at around 100mph.

Now I find out there isn't much more rain than a bad afternoon thunderstorm. Looks like everybody was spared.
