NATIONAL (KRQE) – The Category 2 Hurricane Delta made landfall in southwest Louisiana on the evening of Friday, Oct. 9, and came weeks after Hurricane Laura struck the same region. It hit hard near the coastal Louisiana town of Creole with top winds of 100 mph (155 kph). It then moved over Lake Charles, a city where Hurricane Laura damaged nearly every home and building in late August.ย
