Written by miebaka ikiriko on August 30, 2021
Tens of thousands of people are fleeing the US state of Louisiana as Hurricane Ida closes in from the Gulf of Mexico.
Ida is now a category four hurricane, one below the highest level with up to two hundred and twenty five kilometer per hour sustained wind.
It is expected to make landfall bringing a life threatening storm surge.
The National Hurricane Centre said potentially catastrophic wind damage and flooding rainfall will impact portions of the northern Gulf coast beginning later this morning.
Governor John Ben Edwards warned the storm could be one of the biggest to hit the state in one hundred and fifty years.
