According to the forecasts, the Gulf of Mexico US coast from High Island, Texas, to Ocean Springs, Mississippi, is expected to suffer from extreme storm surges. Strong winds can extend east to Morgan City, Louisiana. Flash flooding and even river flooding risk in Louisiana and Mississippi will exist until Sunday.

The biggest cities to be affected by the hurricane are Lafayette, Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana. In the USA Delta can become the most damaging hurricane of the 2020 season. Everyone in the place of its activity should be especially careful this weekend.

The first land to be affected by Hurricane Delta 2020 several days ago were Cayman Islands. The hurricane center was far from the land so there were no hurricane winds and strong convective events. But the islands were still close to cyclone circulation so high waves were recorded. That made Cayman Islands a perfect surfing place this week.

The hurricane then made landfall in the Yucatan Peninsula (Mexico) as a category 2 hurricane in SSHWS. There were no massive damage or deadly cases either. The Mexican government though had to evacuate thousands of people from the most endangered regions and place them into special shelters.
