Hurricane Laura strengthens as it approaches Texas, Louisiana

Forecasters in the United States say Hurricane Laura could hit the coasts of Louisiana and Texas with “unsurvivable” storm surges.

Currently a Category 4 storm, Laura has rapidly picked up speed, driven by the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Half a million people have already been forced to leave their homes.

Tens of millions more face potential devastation.
