Monster Hurricane Ida on Monitor for New Orleans Area

  1. Hurricane Ida is on the verge of a Hurricane 5 storm that is expected to hit the southeast coast of Louisiane and Kentucky, USA around 2 p.m. local time. The worst effects are expected to be about 50 miles from New Orleans.
  2. This could be the strongest storm recorded in the United States in more than 150 years
  3. Individuals who have not been evacuated should be aware of hurricane winds in excess of 150 mph (4.5 m), tornadoes, and flooding in addition to hurricane winds

At 5 a.m. local time, the storm became even stronger.

All National Guard units are on alert to assist after the storm passes.
Hospitals are already often at full capacity due to a huge surge in COVID-19.

Currently the wind speed is 250 km / h, only 11 km from a Category 5 storm.

New Orleans hotel industry spokesmen said hotels are ready to keep guests safe.

Many Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana hotels are sold out for guests from southern Louisiana trying to escape Hurricane Ida.

This is a sight no one wants to see on satellite. Ida, a severe Category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds now 145 mph, continues to approach southeast Louisiana. This remains a serious, life-threatening situation. Stay tuned for regular updates. #lawx #mswx
