Louisiana prepares for Hurricane Ida

Louisiana officials said Ida could make landfall as a Category 4 hurricane around Sunday afternoon or evening.

If forecasts prove accurate, Ida will end up making U.S. landfall 16 years after the region was devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

Officials in U.S. coastal areas preparing for the storm urged residents to move boats out of harbors and encouraged early evacuations.
