Mayor LaToya Cantrell on Friday said that with little time left before Hurricane Ida reaches Louisiana, residents should get ready to hunker down and ride out the storm.

In a press conference Friday afternoon, Cantrell said that there wasn’t enough time to establish the contraflow procedures necessary to move all of the city’s residents out of the city before the storm’s expected landfall.

She reiterated that New Orleanians inside the city’s levee protection system are safe, but said that residents outside of the levees were under a mandatory evacuation order and should get out as soon as possible.
