Hurricane Laura makes landfall in Texas and Louisiana

Damage has been reported this morning at CHRISTUS St. Patrick Hospital in Lake Charles.  

“At this time, we know we have sustained damage to the facility, but are waiting until the morning to get a clear picture,” hospital spokeswoman Heather Hidalgo tells CNN.

The top of the skybridge that goes from the hospital to the parking garage has lost its covering due to the powerful winds from Laura, Hidalgo said.  

“Everyone is doing well. No evacuations during the storm,” she said.  

Damage is being reported across the Lake Charles area — like at this condo complex.

Take a look:

Resident Tolor White, Jr, dozed off after working on a crossword puzzle, when he heard a loud noise a little before 1:15 a.m.

When he crawled out from under his makeshift barricade — two mattresses — he saw the roof had been taken off by the wind. As he was surveying the damage, the glass windows broke directly next to him.
