Nicholas is officially upgraded to a hurricane on this advisory, and a Hurricane Warning is issued.

No additional strengthening is anticipated until the system makes landfall, and gradual weakening is expected during the next 2-3 days while Nicholas moves over southeastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana. Nicholas is moving north-northeastward. Within 12 to 24 hours, after Nicholas has moved inland, the ridge is forecast to weaken and leave Nicholas in an area of light steering currents.

As a result, during the next couple of days, the cyclone is expected to turn eastward and slow to a crawl near southwestern Louisiana. The official forecast is slower than the previous one, but not as slow as the new model consensus.

🚨🚨Weather update🚨🚨🚨
From the NHC as of 07:00AM EDT SUN Aug 29, 2021
Resource: https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

CURRENT POSITION AND WINDS
28.5N, 89.6W at 150 MPH

D: Tropical Depression – wind speed less than 39 MPH
S: Tropical Storm – wind speed between 39 MPH and 73 MPH
H: Hurricane – wind speed between 74 MPH and 110 MPH
M: Major Hurricane – wind speed greater than 110 MPH

Key Messages:

1. Extremely life-threatening storm surge inundation of 9 feet or greater above ground level is imminent somewhere within the area from Burns Point, Louisiana, to Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Overtopping of local levees outside of the Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction System is possible where local inundation values may be higher. Interests throughout the Storm Surge Warning area should follow any advice given by local officials.

2. Catastrophic wind damage is likely where the core of Ida moves onshore along the southeast coast of Louisiana in the next few hours. Hurricane-force winds are expected today within the Hurricane
Warning area along the Louisiana coast, including metropolitan New Orleans.

3. Damaging winds, especially in gusts, will spread inland near the track of the center of Ida across portions of southeastern Louisiana and southwestern Mississippi today through early Monday. These winds will likely lead to widespread tree damage and power outages.

4. Ida will produce heavy rainfall today through Monday across the
central Gulf Coast from southeastern Louisiana, coastal Mississippi,
to far southwestern Alabama resulting in considerable to life-threatening flash and urban flooding and significant river flooding impacts. As Ida moves inland, significant flooding impacts are possible across portions of the Lower Mississippi, Tennessee, and Ohio Valleys through Wednesday.

Our Cajun Navy Relief Liaison gearing up as well! For those of y’all that don’t know Chris Doran, he has been our CNR and Brittmoore Rescue Liaison since 2017. We all anxiously await Swamp Thang to key up in our channels every year, and you can not count the amount of sleepless nights this man has worked with us, help guide us, and has done it a couple of times working on a ship out in the Gulf. We are so thank you for you, and your dedication to our organization every year ♥️

CURRENT POSITION AND WINDS
26.2N, 87.0W at 105 MPH

D: Tropical Depression – wind speed less than 39 MPH
S: Tropical Storm – wind speed between 39 MPH and 73 MPH
H: Hurricane – wind speed between 74 MPH and 110 MPH
M: Major Hurricane – wind speed greater than 110 MPH
The hurricane appears to have begun its anticipated rapid intensification phase. A favorable upper-level wind pattern, warm waters along the track, and a moist atmosphere are expected to allow for additional rapid strengthening overnight and early Sunday. The forecast continues to call for rapid strengthening, bringing Ida to Category 4 status within 12 to 18 hours. An eyewall replacement cycle could occur as Ida nears so some fluctuations in intensity are possible.

Ida has moved a little to the right of the previous track, but the long-term motion is still northwestward. Ida is expected to continue on a northwestward heading through late Sunday.
After landfall, Ida's forward motion is forecast to slow when it turns northward. By Tuesday, the cyclone should turn north-northeastward across the Lower Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys.
Users are again reminded to not focus on the exact details of the track forecast as storm surge, wind, and rainfall impacts will extend far from the center. Rainfall impacts will also spread inland across the Lower Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys through early next week after Ida makes landfall.

🚨🚨🚨Weather update🚨🚨🚨

From the NHC as of: 0200PM EDT FRI Aug 27 2021

CURRENT POSITION 20.7N, 82.1W 65MPH

D: Tropical Depression – wind speed less than 39MPH
S: Tropical Storm – wind speed between 39MPH and 73MPH
H: Hurricane – wind speed between 74MPH and 110MPH
M: Major Hurricane – wind speed greater than 110MPH

Ida is moving northwestward or 320/13 kt. The track forecast reasoning is unchanged from before. A mid-level ridge over the western Atlantic is forecast to move westward and this should keep Ida on a general northwestward heading during the next 48-60 hours.

KEY MESSAGES:
1. Life-threatening storm surge and hurricane conditions are expected later today and tonight in portions of western Cuba,including the Isle of Youth, where a Hurricane Warning is in effect. Life-threatening heavy rains, flash flooding and mudslides areexpected across Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, and western Cuba, including the Isle of Youth.

2. The risk of life-threatening storm surge inundation is increasing along the coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Inundation of 7 to 11 feet above ground level is possible within the area from Morgan City, Louisiana, to Ocean Springs, Mississippi, including Lake Borgne. Interests in these areas should follow any advice given by local officials.

3. Ida is expected to be a dangerous major hurricane when it reaches the northern Gulf Coast on Sunday, and the risk of hurricane-force winds continues to increase, especially along portions of the Louisiana coast, including metropolitan New Orleans. Potentially devastating wind damage could occur where the core of Ida moves onshore.

4. Ida is likely to produce heavy rainfall later Sunday into Monday across the central Gulf Coast from southeast Louisiana to coastal Mississippi and Alabama, as well as the Lower Mississippi Valley,resulting in considerable flash, urban, small stream, and riverine flooding.

D: Tropical Depression – wind speed less than 39 MPH
S: Tropical Storm – wind speed between 39 MPH and 73 MPH
H: Hurricane – wind speed between 74 MPH and 110 MPH
M: Major Hurricane – wind speed greater than 110 MPH

The depression is moving northwestward or 325/11 kt, however the initial motion is a bit more uncertain than normal since the low-level center has only recently formed. The cyclone is forecast to move steadily northwestward around the southwestern portion of a deep-layer ridge centered over the western Atlantic. This track should bring the center near or over western Cuba late Friday,over the southeastern and central Gulf of Mexico Friday night and Saturday, and have the center approach the northern Gulf coast on Sunday.

The track guidance is in relatively good agreement, however the average NHC track forecast error at day 4 is around 175 miles, so users should not focus on the details of the long range track forecast. Some shifts in the track are likely until the system consolidates and becomes better defined.

The depression will be moving over the high ocean heat content waters of the northwestern Caribbean Sea during the next 24-36 hours. This, in combination with low vertical wind shear and a moist environment, should allow for steady strengthening. The depression is forecast to become a tropical storm later today or tonight, and could approach hurricane strength as it passes near or over western Cuba. Once the system moves into the Gulf of Mexico, conditions are expected to be conducive for additional strengthening, and rapid intensification is explicitly shown in the NHC forecast between 48 and 72 hours.

About Us!

Born from 2017’s Hurricane Harvey, we are a volunteer Search and Rescue Team that specializes in the aid of natural disasters. We started as a husband and wife team operation in the early hours of Harvey and have now grown into a volunteer dispatching team of 20+ individuals equipped with search and rescue volunteers.

Brittmoore Rescue aids in relief, for families affected by natural disasters.

When Harvey penetrated Houston’s 1,000-year flood plain, 3% of the population possessed flood insurance. Although organizations help assist in funds for some of the families, thousands have been left displaced, and attempting to rebuild on their own. We raise funds for these families through fundraising events, and donations from our tight knit, “Houston Strong”, community.
