International Space Station crew member Thomas Pesquet apprehended a picture of Hurricane Ida from space just a few hours before it made landfall in Louisiana.
“Observing hurricanes from space helps us work with partner agencies like NOAA and FEMA to support preparation and disaster response.”
Hurricane Ida is reportedly the sturdiest storm to ever hit Louisiana with the statistics creating landfall as a 150 mph Category 4 hurricane.
Louisiana comes to be the first United States state to top score 150+ mph hurricanes in back-to-back years as Laura and Ida.
A 150 mph Category 4 hurricane has over and above 250 times the mutilation probable of a 75 mph Category 1 storm. Hurricane Ida’s hurricane-force winds spread out 50 miles from the center, and tropical storm-force winds bounce 150 miles from the center.
The center is estimated to badge approximately 30 miles west of New Orleans. New Orleans has received over 65 inches so far this year, their second wettest on record to this point of the year. This will make flooding in the region worse. New Orleans is expecting 15-20 inches of rain with Ida.
According to the report and statistics,
“More than 100,000 customers without power as Hurricane Ida slams into Louisiana. There are now more than 100,000 customers without power in Louisiana as Hurricane Ida bears down. 104,892 customers are without power as a result of Hurricane Ida, an increase of more than 24,000 in just 50 minutes. Power outages are expected to increase as the storm moves inland.”
There are probabilities of a substantial hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico and impact portions of the United States Gulf Coast over the weekend into early next week and will bring the peril of considerable coastal and inland flooding and destructive winds.
Hurricane Ida has promptly strengthened into a robust Category 4 and hazardous storm surges, disparaging winds, and flooding rainfall are fragmentary.
There are projections of life-threatening wind caution for far southeast Louisiana and winds of 115 to 150 mph are probable in this area.
A storm surge cautioning has been delivered from the Intracoastal City, Louisiana, to the Alabama/Florida border together with Vermilion Bay, Lake Borgne, Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Maurepas, and Mobile Bay. The warning indicates that severe inundation from storm surges is predictable in the zones.
According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC),
“The following storm surge inundations are possible if the peak surge happens at high tide, Port Fourchon, Louisiana, to the Mouth of the Mississippi River as 12 to 16 feet, Morgan City, Louisiana, to Port Fourchon, Louisiana as 8 to 12 feet, Mouth of the Mississippi River to Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, including Lake Borgne as 8 to 12 feet, Bay St. Louis, Mississippi to Ocean Springs, Mississippi as 6 to 9 feet, Burns Point, Louisiana, to Morgan City, Louisiana as 5 to 8 feet, Lake Pontchartrain as 5 to 8 feet and, Ocean Springs, Mississippi, to the border between Mississippi and Alabama as 4 to 7 feet, Lake Maurepas as 4 to 6 feet and, Intracoastal City, Louisiana, to Burns Point, Louisiana, including Vermilion Bay as 3 to 5 feet.”
The hurricane’s intensity and severity have deteriorated the sites and organizational structure of the state and there is an emergency declaration and extremely alarming circumstances.
The wind damage may be possibly catastrophic near the place core of Ida making landfall in Louisiana.
Floored trees, extensive power outages, and organizational mutilation will influence an enormous share of southeast Louisiana into southwest Mississippi, counting portions of the Baton Rouge and New Orleans areas. Power outages in some sites possibly will last for days or even weeks.
A million people are escaping the United States state of Louisiana as Hurricane Ida closes in from the Gulf of Mexico.
The National Hurricane Center said,
“Potentially catastrophic wind damage and flooding rainfall will impact portions of the northern Gulf coast beginning later this morning.”
The existing 150mph maximum continued wind speed is merely 7mph short of a category-five hurricane.
The President of the US Joe Biden said,
“Ida was turning into a very, very dangerous storm and the federal government was ready to provide help.”
On Sunday, Ida was approximately 50 miles southwest of the mouth of the Mississippi River and was touching northwest at nearly 15mph. The governor of neighboring Mississippi has affirmed a state of emergency.
It may be the most awful hurricane to knockout Louisiana since the 1850s.
According to the projections, in some places, the storm outpouring possibly will be as high as 16ft which makes 4.8m. The waves of climate alteration on the rate of recurrence of storms are unpredictable but the augmented sea surface temperatures warm the air above that alarms to drive hurricanes. The storms are to be expected to be further penetrating with more great rainfall.
The United States National Weather Service (NWS) has cautioned after Hurricane Ida New Orleans inhabitants to somewhere to stay in a safer place instantaneously and stay alarmed with measures.
