Hurricane Ida Flash Estimate

Hurricane Ida made landfall in southeastern Louisiana as a Category 4 hurricane, tying with the Last Island Hurricane (1856) and Hurricane Laura (2020) for the highest wind speeds at landfall in the state. High levels of wind damage were observed in coastal areas around the landfall point, and high winds dropped off sharply to the west of the storm track. The new levee system in New Orleans held throughout the storm, but smaller levees to the southeast of the city were overtopped.
