August 29th the weather channel reported storm surge/wave heights at 37 ft on Grand Isle. I'm predicting it will be nothing but a sandbar by morning. They had stilt houses there but it was all old construction with dock timber, wouldn't stand a chance for Ida's strength that was just 5mph shy of a Cat5. There was reports the police station collapsed, and some guy named Resweber said that a wind gauge at the police station measured 148 mph sustained wind speed, and then the gauge broke off.
A humid 21C just after 8AM this morning. Some sun this afternoon should warm and dry things up a bit. We shall see
Heavy rain and strong winds knocked out the power for parts of Lunenburg, NSDo you have any signs of Hurricane Ida affecting your area which seems to be in the forecast for your area???
He has certainly caused enough devastation in the North-Eastern US States.
Here's hoping it peters out before it hits your area... But it seems it still has quite a wallop with a lot of rain...
WOW!!! Those are quite some spectacular photos...My neighbor took some nice pics of the rainbows that formed just outside of Lunenburg, NS the other day when the rain finally stopped.
