Too worried about Louisiana people

I guess Peter B is evacuated. Most of my people have fled to Bogalusa/Angie/Varnado. Directly north of New Orleans and seemingly too east of the path.

Ughhhh.

Hope Peter checks in when he hunkers down.

I saw some video of evacuees and the vast majority were heading east on I-10! That's the way the storm will move after landfall! Looks like they'd have to go to Tallahassee to get away from the storm...

So far so good. Just some rain that started at about 0530 so far. Hunkering down on the Northshore about 20' above sea level. No big winds here so far.

I don't like that it is tracking eastward.

It was heading to a fairly remote area of the bayou, but the new track is pushing it to population areas. It is also worth noting that the NHC track is west of the spaghetti models. I expect the 11 am report will adjust it east.

The forecast is now 155mph at landfall, for all intents and purposes that is a cat 5 storm (157mph). Katrina was 125mph at landfall about 20 miles further east.

Ida is breaking all kinds of records. Not good ones. Has strengthened, as measured by deepening barometric pressure, at a record level in 24 hours, for an Atlantic storm this far north. And it is still gaining strength. Acting like Michael from 2018.

This is really scary. Praying for everyone in the path of Ida.

I think PeterB said he was sheltering in place.
Fingers crossed all goes well for him and everyone else who had to stay behind.
