Watch live cameras as Hurricane Ida makes landfall: Views of New Orleans, south Louisiana – NOLA.com

Hurricane Ida is expected to make landfall on the southeast Louisiana coast Sunday as a dangerous Category 4 storm, forecasters say.

By Sunday morning, Ida’s outer bands were bringing steady rain to the New Orleans area. National Weather Service forecasters say hurricane-force winds are expected in parts of south Louisiana by Sunday afternoon.

The storm’s rapid approach made a mandatory evacuation of New Orleans impossible, but Mayor LaToya Cantrell urged anyone who could leave town to do so before Saturday night. Leaders of neighboring parishes have either ordered or strongly encouraged their residents to evacuate, too.

Here’s a collection of live cameras from New Orleans and surrounding areas. NOTE: Some cameras may go offline as weather conditions worsen.
