This is not good, whatever your politics, and I pray that we're prepared for what could possibly be facing us here.

And talk about timing. On the anniversary of Katrina. I sincerely hope Ida doesn't hit as a cat 4 or make landfall in New Orleans. This could be a nightmare of epic proportions, particularly with Louisiana in full-blown pandemic crisis mode. A hell scenario, perfect storm.

Officials have reportedly decided against evacuating New Orleans hospitals, as there’s little room for patients elsewhere, with hospitals from Texas through Florida overwhelmed by COVID patients. Let's hope the pumps work this time if it does hit New Orleans.

Ida aims to hit Louisiana on Hurricane Katrina anniversary

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Hurricane Ida struck Cuba on Friday and threatened to slam into Louisiana with devastating force over the weekend, prompting evacuations in New Orleans and across the coastal region.

Ida intensified rapidly Friday from a tropical storm to a hurricane with top winds of 80 mph (128 kph) as it crossed western Cuba and entered the Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center predicted Ida would strengthen into an extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane, with top winds of 140 mph (225 kph) before making landfall along the U.S. Gulf Coast late Sunday.


**Not sure why this is written so strangely. As if it was in the past? (Threatenedd to slam into Louisiana? I would have written threatens to. Predicted/would? I would have written predicts/will. Weird.) Anyway, direct quote from AP as it stood at the time of this post.

Yeah, looking to be a big one. Looks like the NHC has it strengthening to a low four before weakening slightly to a three before landfall. Still not great.

At least the storm surge is predicted to be less than what it was for Katrina. So far it's still tracking west of the city. That'll help keep flooding from that down, at least.

Good news about the surge, then. Thanks for that. I shudder even contemplating what could happen here during and after if it's a direct hit on New Orleans.

Before today, I hadn't heard the words "over-topping levees" in quite a few years.

This sucker looks nasty. Be prepared for power outages and rain in the south.

It does look horrific, Hoping the measure of unpredictability works in our favor this time and it peters out some.

Thank you for the additional images.

I mean, still forecasting a 7-11 feet surge along Chandeleur Sound and 4-7 feet surge in Lake Pontchartrain. The biggest surge is currently forecasted southwest of the city, not sure what that region of coast is called, at 10-15 feet.

That's current forecast and could change depending on storm track and intensity.

On Arrakis they are called Coriolis storms. But on Arrakis there are no oceans and it doesn't rain.





*It's almost October*

And be careful.

Since humankind modifies the weather, lets weaken IDA.


Save this and your energy for the conspiracy threads that usually follow disasters, k?

Landfall just West of New Orleans is the worst place for Ida to come ashore.
Lows spin counter-clockwise in the northern hemisphere.
Everything East of the eye will have the strongest impacts of wind and water.
The forward motion or speed over ground also gets added to the wind velocity's.
It’s projected path and landfall as of now is a near worse case scenario for New Orleans.
I brought supplies to Gulfport after Katrina and I’d never seen destruction like that.
The videos and pics I took are chilling.
Somebody is going to get whacked but only for the sake of that huge city I hope it makes landfall to the East of New Orleans.
I won’t be surprised if it reaches Cat5 before hitting but there does not seem to be the huge extra warm water bubbles in place from the Gulf Stream that there was for Katrina.
Pray for the whole Gulf Coast, someones in for it.....😳

Thanks for the link, and I echo the sentiment. If you''re anyywhere near IDA's path, please be careful and stay safe.

Isn't there a Greek myth where Chuck Norris beats the piss out of the weather man?

So confused.

At this point, can we agree that hospitals were tagged full when being empty? That they are not overhelmed by dying covid patients but rather by hospitalized who happen to be "covid positive" to raise money if anything?

If New Orleans officials were smart, they actually put money into the levees instead of their own pockets after Katrina. That was part of the problem the first time. The money that should have gone to levee maintenance and upgrade found its way into too many pockets instead of doing what it was supposed to do.

I will admit that we've been watching Ida because we are supposed to drive out to Tennessee late next week. We should miss her though.

I think a big part of the hospital problem is understaffing.

Hospitals are overwhelmed, but not because they're full as much as because they are short staffed. People seem to forget that when everything was shut down last year, a lot of hospitals ended up laying off large chunks of staff because the expected COVID surge never came.

Now you have delta coming on with short-staffed hospitals dealing already with all the stuff people put off because of the first round of COVID. And you have the health care workers already there getting fed up and quitting because they are overworked and stressed with everything going on.
