  • Hurricane Ida also threatens the United States.

A new tropical depression forms in the Atlantic, this is number ten of the season and it appears just a few hours after Hurricane Ida hits US territory, Por Esto reported.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC), highlighted that the natural phenomenon will keep a trajectory towards the north-northwest and issued an alert to warn citizens of possible rains and powerful winds.

WINDS AND SPEED

This new system is located 3 thousand 985 kilometers east of Cancun, in the southern state of Quintana Roo, so it maintains vigilance so that it does not change its trajectory and can reach the territory of the United States.

For its part, the National Meteorological Service indicated that it maintains the aforementioned direction, but that it does so at a speed of 13 kilometers per hour and with maximum sustained winds of 55 kilometers per hour.

This natural phenomenon was formed in the Atlantic Ocean and will have a straight direction, so it is expected that it will become a tropical storm early tomorrow, due to all the conditions that are occurring at this time.

This could become a threat to continue increasing its strength, and although its trajectory is not defined, the United States authorities remain alert in case it changes course and affects its territory.

HURRICANE ALSO THREATENS

On the other hand, Hurricane Ida strengthened and became a category 2 meteor while crossing the Gulf of Mexico and approaching Louisiana, according to information published this afternoon by the AP agency, so they are getting ready for its impact. .

The U.S. National Hurricane Center reported that the hurricane’s maximum sustained winds increased Saturday afternoon to 155 km / h (100 mph). Ida is expected to strengthen further into a dangerous Category 4 hurricane before likely making landfall west of New Orleans late Sunday. Filed Under: Tropical Depression

Tropical Depression: PREPARE

Residents on the Louisiana coast were taking advantage of their last day on Saturday to prepare for Hurricane Ida, which is expected to be devastating when it makes landfall with winds of up to 225 km / h (140 mph).

Across the region, residents filled sandbags, fueled their cars and gasoline generators, and bought food. Capt. Ross Eichorn, a fishing guide off the coast about 70 miles (112 kilometers) southwest of New Orleans, said he feared the warm Gulf waters “will turn Ida into a monster.”

“With a direct hit, you don’t know what, if anything, will be left,” Eichorn said. “Anyone who is not worried is wrong,” he added. Due to the rapid intensification of the meteor, LaToya found it impossible to order a mandatory evacuation of the entire city, which would have required the use of all lanes on some roads.

Cities and communities in the region have issued a series of voluntary and mandatory evacuation orders. In New Orleans, the mayor, LaToya Cantrell, ordered the mandatory departure of those who are in areas outside the levee system that protect the city from flooding, and the voluntary removal of those who live inside the network.

“IT COULD AFFECT LIVES”

“This could be a storm that could affect the lives of those who are not prepared,” warned Benjamin Schott, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, in a news conference with Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards.

Ida quickly transitioned from a tropical storm to a hurricane with maximum winds of 80 mph (128 km / h) as it crossed western Cuba on Friday. It is expected to gain more traction over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The meteor is expected to make landfall on the same day that Katrina, a Category 3 hurricane, washed away much of the US coastline in the Gulf of Mexico 16 years ago.

In New Orleans, local authorities said residents should prepare for possible prolonged power outages and asked older adults to consider leaving. A hurricane watch was issued for most of the Louisiana coast, from the Intracoastal City to the mouth of the Pearl River. Another tropical storm advisory was extended to the Mississippi-Alabama boundary.

Collin Arnold, the city’s emergency management director, said the strong winds could sustain for 10 hours. Earlier in the day, Cantrell called for the mandatory eviction of those residing outside the levee system, a relatively low percentage of the city’s total population.

Katrina caused about 1,800 deaths between the central Louisiana coast and the Mississippi and Alabama lines. A monumental storm surge hit the thing and wiped homes off the map. In New Orleans, federal levee failures caused catastrophic flooding.

The water covered 80% of the city and some houses were flooded to the roof. Some of the victims lost their lives after drowning in the attics. The Superdome and the New Orleans Convention Center became scenes of suffocating misery, with tens of thousands of people stranded without electricity or running water.

New Orleans is in the path of Hurricane Ida exactly 16 years from the day the city’s levees were insufficient to contain the flooding and collapsed in the face of a massive storm surge from Hurricane Katrina’s rains.

Those floods killed more than 1,000 people and caused billions of dollars in damage, but Ida now comes to the doorstep of a region transformed since 2005 by a massive civil works project and increased attention to water control. Filed Under: Tropical Depression

The system has already been tested by numerous storms, including Isaac in 2012, with very little damage to the areas it protects. However, each new meteor that hits the area raises questions about New Orleans’ defenses. As Ida approaches, here are some responses:

The federal government spent $ 14.5 billion on levees, pumps, walls, gates and drainage that provide elevated protection against storm surge and flooding in New Orleans and the suburbs south of Lake Pontchartrain. With the exception of three drainage projects, the work is complete. Filed Under: Tropical Depression With information from AP
