Cat 5

Ida from space:

It’s Katrina all over again, but worse.

The storm surge is what was so lethal in 2005 – it filled the basin of New Orleans like filling a bathtub, and that’s why so many people drowned. It will happen again because the hurricane developed too quickly for a complete evacuation.

And sheltering in place is grim advice in N.O. in a hurricane because much of it is below sea level, so “in place” means underwater. This is going to be another nightmare.
