NOAA Doppler radar imagery indicates that the eye of Ida made 
landfall along the southeastern coast of Louisiana near Port 
Fourchon around 1155 AM CDT (1655 UTC).  Data from an Air Force 
Reserve reconnaissance aircraft and Doppler radar data indicate that 
Ida's maximum sustained winds at landfall were estimated to be 150 
mph (240 km/h).  The latest minimum central pressure estimated from 
reconnaissance aircraft data is 930 mb (27.46 in).

Within the past hour, sustained winds of 43 mph (69 km/h) and a 
gust to 67 mph (107 km/h) were reported at Lakefront Airport in New 
Orleans.

recently reported a water level of 6.4 feet above mean higher high 
water, which is an approximation of inundation in that area.
