Serious damage being reported in Grand Isle. Mayor Camardelle is saying "this storm is worst than what it was forecasted be". He says he's been through many storms and this is not a Cat 1. This is worst than a Cat 1.
I heard that too and thought of all of the posts on here over the last several days that this storm would catch people by surprise and come in feeling stronger than people are expecting. If I heard correctly, Mayor Camardelle followed that statement a minute later saying he feels like it's a strong cat 2 or weak 3.
