Que in the parade of weenies that try arguing that every asymmetric eyewall is due to radar issues. Do we have to go through this every time?

Yes, even intense TCs will have eyewall asymmetry. Pretty dead giveaway that its not a radar issues when it shows up from every radar site, and the weakness is on the upshear side of the storm. It does look like the weakness has become more pronounced in the last hour.

 

Isn't this guy the same guy who was arguing nonstop about radar attenuation during a hurricane last year and it took up pages of the storm discussion right before landfall because he apparently wasn't right or something? lol

Surge & flooding will matter a lot more than where the eyewall hits.

Needless to say this won't be another Katrina.

I actually feel the media will be disappointed by the lack of devastation though.

Not even close…agreed. New Orleans will have some flooding, and damage from likely cat 1 type winds but not much more.

The levee system has been rebuilt. Katrina was a much larger hurricane with a much higher peak intensity.

Our building codes have improved since 2005. 

However the surge & inland flooding impacts will still be very bad for many. Ida should continue to slow prolonging the flooding dangers.

Agreed, it’s going to be bad for sure, but people thinking along lines of Katrina are way off base.

You are describing the majority of development in the united States.

According to the 2020 census, 50% of the US population now lives within 50 miles of the coastline. Bad decisions on zoning and growth aided by a population that doesn't care.
