Hurricane Ida intensify, set to hit Louisiana U.S.A on Sunday

 Hurricane Ida intensify its strength Saturday as it poised to make landfall tomorrow, Sunday, along Louisiana coast. Ida which is moving away from Cuba and into the Gulf of Mexico is said to be at least Category 4 with 130 mph winds before landfall.

The National Hurricane Center said: "Ida is expected to be an extremely dangerous major hurricane when it approaches the northern Gulf Coast on Sunday."

National Hurricane Center messaging — 10 a.m. Saturday:

1. There is a danger of life-threatening storm surge inundation

Sunday along the coasts of Louisiana and Mississippi within the

Storm Surge Warning area. Extremely life-threatening inundation of

9 feet or greater above ground level is possible somewhere within

the area from Morgan City, Louisiana, to the coast of Mississippi.

Overtopping of local levees outside of the Hurricane and Storm

Damage Risk Reduction System is possible where local inundation

values may be higher. Interests throughout the warning area should

follow any advice given by local officials.

2. Ida is expected to be an extremely dangerous major hurricane when

it reaches the coast of Louisiana. Hurricane-force winds are

expected Sunday in portions of the Hurricane Warning area along the

Louisiana coast, including metropolitan New Orleans, with

potentially catastrophic wind damage possible where the core of Ida

moves onshore. Actions to protect life and property should be rushed

to completion today in the warning area.

3. Ida is likely to produce heavy rainfall Sunday and Monday across

the central Gulf Coast from southeast Louisiana to coastal

Mississippi, resulting in life-threatening flash and urban flooding

and significant river flooding impacts. As Ida moves inland,

significant flooding impacts are likely across portions of the Lower

Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys Monday and Tuesday.
