Ida in the Gulf

NHC English translation:
  • Ida is in the Gulf of Mexico, rapidly heading north with a target anywhere within a hundred miles either side of Mobile-Pensacola.
  • The inner center of the storm remains modest in size, but tropical-force winds could extend up to a radius of fifty miles from the center.
  • Ida is likely to weaken quickly as it encounters colder waters and air temperatures over the next 36 hours.
  • It might or might not be a hurricane when it makes landfall, but it's sure to be very wet, windy, and accompanied by a storm surge and damaging waves along the coast.
