Hurricane Ida heading for U.S. coast


Ida regained her hurricane status over the weekend, strengthening more quickly than was forecast to become a category two hurricane carrying sustained winds of 100mph. Ida narrowly missed the Yucatan peninsula and is now crossing the Gulf of Mexico bound for the U.S. coast somewhere between Pascagoula Mississippi and India Pass Florida.

Hurricane Ida has slightly weakened on her journey but is still a dangerous category one storm with winds of 90mph. Further weakening is expected before landfall. See the latest forecast path below.
