LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — The remnants of Hurricane Laura are unleashing heavy rain hundreds of miles inland from a path of death and destruction left along the northwest Gulf Coast.
Forecasters predict an eastern turn making the tropical depression a looming threat to the Mid-Atlantic states this weekend.
Laura crashed ashore Thursday as a Category 4 hurricane near the Louisiana line with Texas.
It was one of the strongest hurricanes ever to strike the U.S., packing 150-mph winds.
Laura destroyed buildings, toppled trees and killed at least six people in the U.S. Forecasters say it could still pack a punch en route to the East Coast.
