National Hurricane Center landfall winds were reported at 11:55 a.m. CT with winds of up to 150 mph.
Ida weakened as a tropical storm and continues to lose some of its strength. However, the next phase of the system’s impact will bring floodwaters to millions by Thursday.
Strong winds are possible during the day, which can damage energy.
The tornado danger also continues east of the transmission center.
Heavy rain is a major concern as Ida’s remains move into the Mid-South, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
Three to 6 inches of rain fell on the Ida route – including southern New England, where the plain was saturated from Henry a week ago.
