As Hurricane Delta makes its way to the Louisiana coast, many residents in Southwest Louisiana are hitting the highway for Texas to get out of the storm's way.

State Police warn motorists to be aware of the heavy traffic on I-10 West from Lake Charles to the Texas State line.

The last thing you want to happen is to get in an accident in heavy evacuation traffic. Due to the heavy traffic emergency vehicles will have a hard time getting to you.

If you or someone you know is traveling on I-10 West , you can visit 511la.org or use the 511 app for traffic updates.
