Earlier this summer in mid-August, Hurricane Laura deepened rapidly just before it came onshore in western Louisiana.

Preliminary estimates determined that Hurricane Laura caused $525.4 million in damage to Louisiana farmers and $1.1 billion to the Louisiana timber industry, a severe blow to the region. Much of the damage came from wind, not rain, and it was probably the worst storm ever in terms of damage to lumber, although crops were less affected. You can read more here.
