The forecast landfall location of this storm is marshy lowland, devoid of infrastructure. Looks risky with any surge, even for a Cat 1. Nearby Cameron was moonscaped by Rita in 2005. Morgan City is a miniature version of New Orleans, kept dry by a ring of levees/floodwalls and always at risk for flooding from the Atchafalaya even on a good day. That being said, Morgan City is probably a decent option in this case, though flooding may be an issue for getting out afterward.
