Parish, state officials warn of Ida’s potential impacts
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Parish and state officials held press conferences throughout the day Friday as Louisiana prepares for a major hurricane strike.
Ida is forecast to be a 140 mph storm into Terrebonne Parish Sunday night.
New Orleans Mayor Latoya Cantrell wants everyone who lives or works outside the city’s levee protection system to evacuate. The National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Ida is already rapidly intensifying and could speed across warm Gulf waters and slam into Louisiana on Sunday after passing over Cuba on Friday. Climate scientist Jim Kossin says it’s headed straight towards New Orleans. Gov. John Bel Edwards has declared an emergency for all of Louisiana.
