Hurricane Laura is not being kind to Lake Charles right now.

We've seen multiple videos from numerous members of the media who are stationed at the Golden Nugget Casino in Lake Charles while they cover Hurricane Laura and News 5 photojournalist Matt Goins has shared video footage of the roof flying off of the casino hotel.

You can see pieces of the roof flying off like someone flicking crumbs off of their shirt. There are also numerous videos documenting the eerie sounds of the wind blowing through the hallways of the Golden Nugget as well.

Based on the small number of videos and sounds alone thus far, it will be interesting to see what Lake Charles and surrounding areas look like at first light.

Be safe as winds and rising waters continue to be a threat throughout all of south Louisiana while Laura makes her way through our area.
