Lake Charles is not exactly ON the Gulf Coast but is still close enough to get some bad damage from hurricanes when they hit the area. You may see signs warning of damage caused by these hurricanes. Please pay attention to them. I heard someone got hurt on this pier because they did not heed the warnings.

Do not let the location of Lake Charles (on a lake in Southern Louisiana) fool you. They can get some adverse weather. When I visited in January 2014 they had an ice storm. The steep bridge along Interstate 10 over the lake was impassable. You can't go around it either without driving a long way.
