La. Gov. declares emergency ahead of hurricane Ida

NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Hurricane Ida, the first Atlantic hurricane to target the United States this year, plodded Sunday toward the Gulf Coast with 100 mph winds, bringing the threat of flooding and storm surges.

A hurricane watch extended over more than 200 miles of coastline across southeastern Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. Louisiana’s governor declared a state of emergency.

Authorities said Ida could make landfall as early as Tuesday morning, although it was forecast to weaken by then. Officials and residents kept a close eye on the Category 2 hurricane as it approached, though there were no immediate plans for evacuations.

At 1 p.m. EST, Ida was located 510 miles south-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River and moving northwest near 10 mph. The latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center shows Ida brushing near Louisiana and Mississippi, then making landfall near Alabama before continuing across north Florida.

The Dems in this nation need to pay very close attention here. A Cat 2 hurricane *may* hit S.E. Louisiana with a glancing blow and Gov. Bobby Jindal sets the wheels in motion BEFORE there is ANY kind of strike, BEFORE there is ANY death and/or flooding and the state goes into preparation mode. All for a Category 2 hurricane.

Isn’t it amazing? The difference between a level headed Conservative Governor and a Democrap moonbat that sat on her fat ass in Baton Rouge while a Cat 5 took dead aim on, and very nearly destroyed New Orleans?

Hang in there Louisiana, you have GREAT leadership and the 256th BCT is still home!

If the Dems had done anything even remotely close to this when Katrina was bearing down on New Orleans, the state of Louisiana would have been much better off. But, they are Dems, you just can’t expect this kind of pre-staged planning when all they know is *victim mentality*.
