Residents across Louisiana’s coast are taking one last day to prepare for what is being described as a “life-altering” Hurricane Ida.

The storm is expected to bring winds as high as 225 kilometres per hour when it slams ashore.

A combination of voluntary and mandatory evacuations have been called for cities and communities across the region including New Orleans, where the mayor ordered a mandatory evacuation for areas outside the city’s levee system and a voluntary evacuation for residents inside the levee system.

But since the storm quickly escalated in intensity, Mayor LaToya Cantrell said it wasn’t possible to order a mandatory evacuation of the entire city.
