Major Hurricane Ida

Wobble to the north now, evident on radar. While i'm usually not a fan of wobble PxP, it is important to remember that wobbles to the north could now signify the system is beginning its well advertised turn toward the north as well... Which clearly matters wrt impacts.

This station went through the eye:

Doesn't look right. Pilots Station East, S.W. Pass, LA - Station ID: 8760922  is quite a ways NE of Ida's eye. And the official readings there look different, no sharp drop spike.  May be stations with similar names. Too bad the station ID number isn't shown there.

But this overall station chart shows no station that has had eye contact yet:

Looking at the sats it does not look like this station went through the eye. It is east of the eye. I saw the wind drop and direction change, but it was not in the eye.

Really do not like that the storm is choosing now to decide to start its turn more toward the north. Likely means that western portions of NOLA metro will be in the eastern eyewall... Which will cause substantial wind damage, and potentially impactful storm surge (unsure exactly how much surge since they are "inland" but most of that "land" is marsh... obviously there's the levee system too).

Phil Klotzbach reports Ida ranks with Hurricane Allen (1980) and Hurricane Rita (2005) with a 40 mb drop in pressure in the Gulf in 12 hours.

Allen was a scary sumbeotch coming in, then it kind of stalled when it got near SPI, then weakened enough as it came ashore to prevent what could have been another Ida.

I’m starting to see some larger items floating by on that Grand Isle camera. Pixilated, but visible.

I don't know LA geography and trying to compare where Grand Isle is with relation to the eye.  If I'm correct, the eye will pass just west of there.  Am I looking at the right place between the webcam map and the satellite loop?

Their site has an overlay map at https://www.severestudios.com/

You can see the cam locations and the radar on the map.
