Major Hurricane Ida

Recommended Posts

These are the noon CDT conditions in N.O. showing gusts already to 61 mph. These will likely get much worse there during the next few hours. For a comparison, Betsy, which hit N.O. very hard, was 12 mb higher at 942 at about the time of landfall to the south vs the 930 of Ida in about the same location on a similar trajectory:

Two New Orleans ASOS sites (KNEW and KMSY) have reported gusts to 55 kt and 53 kt (respectively) within the last hour. Galliano (KGAO) in Lafourche County gusted to 68 kt at 1715 UTC. That site may come close to being within the eyewall over the next hour or so.

So even though the Jokko guy has said some incorrect things, he is positioned in outer eyewall right now, and in perfect spot to get hit with inner eyewall shortly, at which point he really could really see those 150+ mph winds. https://www.severestudios.com

He's in a better position than any other chaser. 

Hopefully he makes it out alright, I’m presuming elevation probably isn’t more than 10-20 ft about sea level where he’s at
