Predicted path a little closer to Beaumont right now than Lake Charles. Both are gonna get a big hit from it for sure. My in-laws lost their home to Rita, so we are real concerned that could happen again.

Expected to further increase and looking at the tide charts, may not hit at the best time either.  

it's widening  -- tonight is the night  - Houston is not getting the brunt of it ---

I think your high tide is right around 4AM and your warnings read like a book.

What's the traffic situation look like heading out of town, and how does that factor in?

No traffic to speak of this late in the game.   There never is this close to landfall.

No it's 4 hours west of us, just light wind and a little rain.

 

But now the winds are up to 140 sustained by the storm.

My heart goes out to all in harm's way ... particularly those that are sick or disabled. Today, my Asthma is letting me know that it still exists. I ran short of breath just talking with my brother. Can't imagine feeling like this and having to evacuate -- yet I know so many have to do just that. 

For those of you with experience in these sorts of events, do the "experts" tell you how far away you need to travel to be safe?  weather channel just now said that the surge could extend as far as 40 miles inland.  they're using the phrase "Unsurvivable Storm Surge."

145 sustained winds 

 

Almost enough to blow a Volvo.

Sounds like a big one!  Never left home for one but that's just me.  One problem leaving is sometimes you aren't allowed back for several days.  Be safe whatever your choice but time is running short.

 

I'm still working with insurance on the last little mishap.

had a big branch of a tree fall directly onto our front porch once ... a few minutes after my wife had left for work.  I had called the landlord and told him that there was a widow maker threatening the house -- he blew it off. then I called back and told him that it fell and now damaged the section of roof overhanging the porch. suddenly, he was interested and he came out to see that.

We're at my daughters house now which is just north of Houston.  Well head home tomorrow as soon as we're able.
