BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Space Coast Daily’s very own Daryl Durand is traveling to Louisiana to cover Hurricane Ida, which is projected to hit the Gulf Coast as a Category 4 storm on late Sunday or early Monday.

Durand will provide live reports as the storm approaches and the aftermath of this potentially catastrophic storm.

Ida is moving toward the northwest near 16 mph, and this general motion should continue through late Sunday or early Monday, followed by a slower northward motion on Monday.

On the forecast track, the center of Ida will move over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico today and move over the central Gulf of Mexico tonight and early Sunday.

Ida is then expected to make landfall along the U.S. northern Gulf coast within the hurricane warning area on Sunday and then move inland over portions of Louisiana or western Mississippi later on Monday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph with higher gusts.

Rapid strengthening is forecast during the next 24 to 36 hours and Ida is expected to be an extremely dangerous major hurricane when it approaches the northern Gulf coast on Sunday.

Weakening is expected after Ida makes landfall.

Ida is moving toward the northwest near 16 mph, and this general motion should continue through late Sunday or early Monday, followed by a slower northward motion on Monday.
