Like the look of this image? Install Google Earth and download the Hurricane Ida Google Earth Files, then you will be able to view it in 3D, zoom into every point on the track, and more. Google Earth is FREE, and it's on the download page.

If there is no tracking map, just a blue page with 'No Tracking Initiated', then the tropical cyclone was not tracked on this site due to the following reasons :

i) the cyclone never became a tropical storm or hurricane (we only track named storms here), or

ii) the storm was never considered to be a threat to land by the NHC, or

iii) no-one was here to do the tracking e.g. holidays, work commitments etc.

STATUS: Watching Tropical Storm Ida, 285 south-southwest of Pensacola Florida
9th November, 2009 10:00 News

...Ida weakens to a tropical storm...

At 9 am cst...1500 utc...all hurricane warnings and watches along the Gulf coast have been discontinued. A tropical storm warning is now in effect from Grand Isle Louisiana eastward to the Aucilla river Florida...including New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain. A tropical storm warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area within 24 hours.

For storm information specific to your area...please monitor products issued by your local national weather service forecast office.

At 900 am cst...1500 utc...the center of tropical storm Ida was located near latitude 26.5 north...longitude 88.3 west or about 185 miles...300 km...south-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi river and about 285 miles...460 km...south-southwest of Pensacola Florida.

Ida is moving toward the north-northwest near 17 mph...28 km/hr. a turn toward the north and then to the north-northeast is expected over the next 24 hours. On the forecast track...the center of Ida is expected to make landfall along the northern Gulf coast Tuesday morning. After landfall...a turn to the east is expected on Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds continue to decrease and are now near 70 mph...110 km/hr...with higher gusts. Some additional weakening is expected today as Ida approaches the coast.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 200 miles...325 km from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 996 mb...29.41 inches.

I shall continue to update the tracking maps until Hurricane Ida dies.
I can be found in the central Florida hurricane center forum until the end of November.
