E&E News: U.S. LNG surge may have a flood problem

CAMERON, La. — Almost two years ago, Hurricane Laura pushed a 17-foot-high wall of water onto the Louisiana coastline.

Hundreds of houses and businesses in this coastal town were simply washed away. The storm tide surged nearly 30 miles up the Calcasieu River and flooded large swaths of Lake Charles. It took weeks to restore the city’s electricity. Two months later, Hurricane Delta hit the same stretch of coastline.
