Cat 4 Hurricane Ida 40 Miles South Of Grand Isle, Louisiana.
A local TV Station in New Orleans (Fox 8) is reporting an unofficial wind gust of 166 mph from an automated station offshore south of the mouth of the Mississippi River. This has not been confirmed as of 8:35 AM MDT this Sunday morning.
Sadly local media sources are reporting that many people in the New Orleans area and surrounding communities refused to evacuate. Many are praying that we are not fixing to see another Katrina or worse.
