1. I hope it moves through there pretty quickly.

I'm watching a Baton Rouge station now, and they're expecting it to be near them in the next couple of hours. Zeta was a bad storm last year. It hit late in October, later than any bad hurricane I'd ever seen. It moved through in a couple of hours, though, so the damage wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been. This storm lingered a while over the Houma area as it was making landfall, and they were recording 138 mph sustained winds! I think we're going to see a lot of catastrophic damage from there in the morning.
