For the second month in a row, the General Meeting in New Orleans, scheduled for August 25, 2020, was cancelled due to weather. With Hurricanes Laura and Marco bearing down on the Louisiana coast (and New Orleans in both cones of uncertainty) the board voted to cancel the meeting.
As it turned out, Marco degraded to a minimal tropical storm for New Orleans. However, Laura continued to strengthen, eventually making landfall as a category 4 storm near Lake Charles on Thursday August 27.
