We’ve seen this happen several times in storms moving over land thats very marshy/wet. For those wondering why the strength of #Ida is only painfully slowly decreasing. 👇�…p3
Such a long and horrendous night ahead as this crawls through… Ida……

The next few hours will be the worst for New Orleans as the eastern eye scrapes across the city. #ida
FLOODING in NOLA: Look at this in Venetian Isles in @CityOfNOLA. This is one area in New Orleans under a *mandatory* evacuation. Venetian Isles, Lake Catherine & Irish Bayou; areas outside the levee protection system. Water is almost up to the stop sign 🥺@wdsuu#HurricaneIdaaJ

Our cam in Golden Meadow is in the core of hurricane Ida right now 👀3

Up to about 8 feet of storm surge at this gauge in SE LA. #ida
Ida and Katrina, two devastating major hurricanes, 16 years and just a few miles apart.

No earthly idea how this webcam in #GrandIsle is still functioning now that #idahurricane storm surge appears to be breaking over it.

The U.S. went from cat 3 Wilma (10/24/05) to cat 4 Harvey (8/25/17) w/o a cat 3+ strike or landfall (and back to Charley on 8/13/04 for a cat 4+). Since then? Harvey (4) Irma (4) Maria (4) Michael (5) Laura (4) Zeta (3) Ida (4) Insert diddy about small sample sizes here.

Life-threatening storms surge is impacting most of the coast already. Surge along coastal LA west of the MS river are unreliable at this time as they are likely gone. East we continue to see Shell Beach and Waveland rise rapidly. Move to higher ground NOW if in these areas #Ida

3/ Listen to the winds—John Humphress on @MyRadarWX live coverage of #Ida intensifying in Grand Isle #lawx #mswx #hurricaneida

3rd major hurricane to make landfall in Louisiana in a year (Laura, Zeta in 2020).…
Radar picking up on 145 mph wind in eastern eyewall of #Ida as it comes ashore.
Extremely life-threatening storm surge inundation of 9 feet or greater above ground level is imminent somewhere within the area from Burns Point, LA, to Ocean Springs, MS. Overtopping of local levees outside of the Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction System is possible #Ida

According to National #Hurricane Center operational best track, #Ida's central pressure fell 40 hPa in 12 hr. Only 2 other #hurricanes on record (pressure consistently recorded since 1979), have had 40+ hPa pressure falls in Gulf of Mexico in 12 hr: Allen (1980) and Rita (2005).

Every NHC forecast for Ida. One might say they're pretty good at their jobs.

Category 4 #ida approaching landfall near Grand Isle, LA. Third major hurricane in a year to make landfall in LA.
Zeta and Laura were major Hurricane hits in LA in 2020 west of where #Ida is likely to come in. All those Gulf facing spots in SE LA to coastal MS likely to see 10 feet or more of storm surge.…
Hurricane Ida is now expected to be a category four hurricane at landfall Sunday. I'll have the latest on Channel 2 at 5 pm.

Updated track basically unchanged — intensity near landfall at Category 4/140 mph strength. Storm surge of 10-15 feet possible along parts of LA coast. Watch @BradNitzWSB at 5 for latest track updates and possible local impacts. @wsbtv #ida
The way to think about the white/red area in the central Gulf on this map — #ida is going to run right over premium fuel, and a lot of it. The warmest water in the Gulf. I fear the intensity forecasts are only going to keep going up. @wsbtv
#Ida will move across extremely warm water in the central Gulf. It’s more likely to come in stronger than forecast than weaker, unfortunately.…
Ooh boy Atlanta looks good this morning. (Via @mckayWSB)

#Ida is strengthening quickly now south of Cuba -- up to 60 mph. This will likely be a major hurricane in the north-central Gulf in about 48 hours. It's going to move across some of the warmest water in the entire Gulf. @wsbtv
Sunday is also the 16 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's landfall on the central Gulf coast.…
#Ida will be approaching the Gulf coast -- likely as a major hurricane -- on Sunday. Remember, the greatest surge threat is along and east of the center of the storm -- that will put much of SE LA, MS, and AL in that surge zone with 7 feet or more possible. @wsbtv
No impacts from Ida here over the next few days -- if anything, we're going to be nice and dry! Beyond Monday, we'll have to watch the track as it moves inland -- but our rain and storm risk will go up starting Tuesday. @wsbtv
New advisory in on #Ida -- wind up to 45 mph. New forecast takes it to major hurricane status as it approaches the central Gulf coast late this weekend. Strong wind, flooding rain, and large storm surge all possible along the central and parts of the eastern Gulf coast. @wsbtv
Dense fog advisory this morning in the north Georgia mountains until 10am -- there will be spots with visibility less than a quarter mile. Low beams and slower speeds there! @wsbtv
Potential for multiple Gulf of Mexico hurricane threats over the next 7-14 days -- I'll break it down plus what we're watching for our weather... 4:30-7am on Channel 2. @wsbtv
Gooooood morning! Your Friday morning is off to a warm & humid -- and we have lower chances of rain in the forecast the next few days! I'm updating the full weekend forecast plus the latest on #Ida -- at 4:30am on Channel 2! @wsbtv
It's looking quite likely that #99L will claim the next name: #Ida. Trivia: "I" storms are infamously the most retired. Here are the eleven: Ione '55, Inez '66, Iris '01, Isidore '02, Isabel '03, Ivan '04, Ike '08, Igor '10, Irene '11, Ingrid '13, Irma '17.

Tropical Depression 9 has formed in Caribbean... potential major hurricane threat to central Gulf coast early next week. More on Channel 2 at noon!
Potential that #Invest99L tracks more or less right over some of the deepest/warmest/highest heat content water in the Gulf. A lot to watch, but the central Gulf coast (especially) needs to be on guard for a hurricane hit by early next week.
Looking a little better right now out at Buford-Spring connector in midtown -- fog is thicker in other spots. @wsbtv
Lots of fog right now around metro Atlanta, but that will burn off over the next hour or two. Tracking some isolated storms this afternoon. See you at noon on Channel 2! @wsbtv
Also keeping a close eye on the tropics -- wave in the central Caribbean will likely be a hurricane in the Gulf in a few days... I'll break down its possible future track -- 4:30-7am on Channel 2. @wsbtv
Good morning! After some big late day storms yesterday, we have fog/low clouds left behind this morning. I'm tracking a drier day for most of us today -- see you at 4:30am on Channel 2! @wsbtv
Storms developing across north Georgia this afternoon may become severe. I'll be tracking those live on Channel 2 at 5 pm.

Downpours getting going on the south side now… gradually working west and northwest. Expect scattered showers & storms this afternoon… but still a lot of heat!

The tropical wave in the southeast Caribbean will be the big one to watch for the US over the next week with potential Gulf of Mexico impacts in a few days. @wsbtv
Watching three strong tropical waves in the Atlantic -- several areas to watch for possible US impacts over the next couple of weeks.
Really warm and humid out there this morning -- after little rain again. Cooler temperatures & more rain coming! @wsbtv
Gooooood morning! A dry start this morning -- but more storms coming our way this afternoon. I'm tracking the timeline for you 4:30-7am on Channel 2! @wsbtv
A chance to view the space station in just a few minutes -- it'll pass overhead from WSW to NE at a peak elevation of about 60 degrees above the horizon (that's pretty far up!). It starts at 6:07am! @wsbtv
