The Louisiana government has declared a state of emergency on Hurricane Ida, http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091108/ap_ ... al_weather.

Ida hit the Yucatan a couple days ago, and was a tropical depression for a while, but has strengthened back into a C1 hurricane. How will this impact the US? Will it be a hurricane when it hits?

It seems likely it will be a strong TS or a Cat 1 hurricane when it hits. Being relatively late in the season has helped it from becoming a Wilma type storm.

It is definitely looking quite disorganized right now, maybe half a day before landfall. Good news for those people in Ida's path.
