  1. Hurricane Ida !

    Tropical Storm Ida formed out of a tropical depression in the western Caribbean within the past 15 hours. This storm developed quickly and is near Hurrican force, Category 1 at this time. The storm is affecting the Central America east coast with significant rains and wind. This will cause mudslides throughout the mountainous areas, especially in Nicaragua. The storm will weaken as it brushes the coastline and will probably enter the southern Gulf of Mexico near the Yucatan Penninsula Monday or Tuesday as a tropical depression or weak tropical storm. There is a chance that the storm will re-form and strengthen again in 5 to 7 days once it gets into the warm Gulf of Mexico waters. Persons along the Gulf Coast of the USA should watch this storm's progress.

    Our next unofficial update will take place if and when this storm shows signs of being a threat to the Gulf Coast states.

  2. A l e r t !

    HURRICANE IDA is now near the Yucatan Penninsula of Mexico moving generally north at 12 miles per hour into the Gulf of Mexico. This storm is currently at Category 1 with sustained winds at 90+ MPH and will strengthen to Category 2 later Sunday, Nov. 08. The storm will encounter an upper level system which may keep it from strengthening further, but we are carefully watching this system for interaction with Hurricane Ida. Persons from the Texas - Louisiana border to southwestern Florida should monitor the progress of this storm very carefully. There are many variables which could affect this Hurricane's path and intensity over the next 3 days and the link below can be used for hour by hour updating. Listen carefully to your local Weather Office and Emergency Operations Center advisories if you are in coastal Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

  3. Category 2 - Hurricane Ida

    As of 3:00 PM USA CST, Hurricane IDA became a Category 2 Hurricane with maximum sustained winds at 103 MPH and gusting to over 120 MPH.

    The storm is forecast to increase it's northerly movement to near 20 MPH overnight and will be approaching the northern Gulf Coast late Monday into early Tuesday. Hurricane Ida will most likely weaken as it approaches the Gulf Coast, but 3 to 5 foot storm surges and wind driven coastal flooding may be present in some low lying areas.

    This is the latest track map but this projection is only approximate.

    Persons in coastal areas from southeastern Louisiana to near Mexico Beach, Florida should be monitoring local NWS and EOC advisories very closely.

  4. HURRICANE IDA update 06:00 Hrs (AM) Monday November 09, 2009

    Hurricane Ida will be making Gulf Coast Landfall as a weak Category 1 Hurricane or very strong Tropical Storm near the Alabama/Florida border late Monday or early Tuesday. Those persons residing along the coast from the Louisiana/Mississippi border to Mexico Beach, Florida, are being asked to closely monitor your local media for advisories, official information and lowlands evacuation orders. Very strong easterly winds will create storm surges of 3 to 6 feet and waves from 11 to 15 feet in these areas with rainfall amounts of 3 to 9 inches over the next 36 hours. For our colleagues and friends in this general area of the Gulf Coast, be safe and God bless...

  5. Named Storm Ida Final update, 05:15 AM, Tuesday, November 10, 2009:

    Ida's lowest pressure center is making landfall at this hour along the southeastern Mississippi, southern Alabama and far northwestern Florida Gulf Coast. The central winds are down to 50 MPH and the majority of the rain and gusty winds are to the northeast of the central core. Persons in eastern Mississippi, most of Alabama, northern Florida, all of Georgia and the Carolinas can expect heavy rains and gusty winds with some lowlands flooding, thunderstorms and hail in some areas. This storm will also bring some of the same rains and wind into the mid Atlantic states within the next 2 to 5 days.

    Ida was the latest November Tropical System to make landfall in the US since Hurricane Kate in 1985.

    This will be our final Named Storm Ida update. For those persons in the path of the remnants of this storm over the next several days, please refer to this NWS interactive Watch and Warning map:
