day after hurricane katrina decimated new orleans and much of the gulf coast, folks there are bracing for another major hurricane, something that. >> they just simply used to. we're talking about hurricane ida some believe that it could pack a punch just like katrina if not more as well. >> ida is gaining strength. that is expected to hit new orleans tomorrow and reporter jack, where is in new orleans. he's there for us live tonight. people are preparing for the worst. he's going to go over a little bit with us, how they're getting ready and what the mood is like there tonight before hurricane ida makes landfall. good evening, jack. >> good evening and you're right, it's the new does it really depends on who you ask. some people are walking around like it's any other night saying they're just going to ride this storm out others. we saw getting out of town bumper to bumper traffic headed out of new orleans as we were coming in earlier today. you can see behind me some places are doing what they can
9:16 pm
boarding up windows, things like that. others kind of feel like it's old hat at this point here in new orleans. but nonetheless, that does not diminish how seriously the leadership here is taking this storm. the governor saying while this could be worse than katrina. they also feel more prepared than last time, too. >> familiar sight of a hurricane approaching boarded windows sandbags to prevent flooding a major hurricane bearing down on new zach and spencer are helping each other as they prepared to stay put during ida their jobs will keep them here even as many choose to evacuate. did you consider leaving a dollar or. >> yeah. yeah. we but. kind watch that play out. >> i guess there's still a chance of it. ends up getting bad late will head out as of now. we're not going to track it. >> the new orleans mayor stopping short of issuing a mandatory evacuation saying there simply isn't enough
9:17 pm
this could be worse than ying n- katrina. >> this will be one of the strongest hurricanes to hit anywhere in louisiana since at least the 1850's. >> although leaders are confident in the city's levee system which faces its first major test since being rebuilt. the rebuilt levees near the 17th street canal are working properly leaders say millions of dollars invested to strengthen the system. that's why some people feel confident riding out item. this doesn't work. >> engineer not make any sense to, you know, this is going to work. if he can work. do you you think it will work even even despite them saying some of this could be worse than katrina in terms of of winds and just the power of the storm. >> yeah, i think i think it could handle another katrina at that. what they did here and they didn't say every can. now that goes in here. >> still, people who live here being urged to leave with time running out as night falls on the big easy. here tonight.
9:18 pm
you can see some folks are still walking around. i mean, you can tell people are. >> doing whatever they want to most people, though, have heeded the warnings. i'd say it's by no means busy in new orleans tonight and worth noting this is actually a very significant day in new orleans history. august 29th tomorrow. that is not only is it the anniversary of katrina and not only will it be the day that i to makes landfall likely as a category 4, but it's also the 3rd time a hurricane has hit here that's very strong. isaac back in 2012. so this time of the year, folks in new orleans know what to expect. >> so jack, what are the lessons learned that during those past 2 hurricanes that people are using this time around so they can be more prepared. getting leading up to the hurricane and then also afterwards during the cleanup face. >> well, 2 parts to that answer. one would be the way individuals are preparing. i think more people are inclined to heed the warnings to get out of town. we seem to have
9:19 pm
found fewer people who are the type to say i'm going to stick it out. we we obviously spoke to several today who did have that opinion. but i think people are quicker to listen to the warnings of authorities and say, you know what, we may as well get out of town and not risk our lives. staying here with our property. but from a leadership standpoint, from the leadership of the city from the federal government. the investment that's been made in this city in the pump system and the levees to try to strengthen and reinforce those preparing for an event like this has been very significant over the past 16 years since katrina. so this will be the first true test of that investment to see if it can hold up. >> once again, we're still timing the any idea has that changed at all on when the storm is expected to arrive. >> i believe the last estimate for the national weather service here in louisiana. was that it's actually a little earlier. now the meteorologist in charge here saying on twitter earlier he's really concerned about the impact of
9:20 pm
the storm nervous it and believe he said on twitter that it makes him sick to his stomach to think about. so, you know, i think people are so used to hearing about bad weather here. but when you hear the guy that's in charge of determining how severe storm will be say that he's queasy about it. i think people are listening to this morning's it's also to be something to keep in mind is if this happens overnight, a lot of folks, you know, obviously going to be dangerous if you're going to be trying to get on the road. >> trying to get out of the way of the storm at that point too late. obviously, you know, at night things can you don't have the daylight. and so for a lot of folks who may be trying to ride this out or just not get out of the way or, you know, just simply trying to ride this out as the storm hit overnight that that also adds another level of danger as well, jack, what's your plan for overnight and then covering this tomorrow. >> yeah. justine and jonathan, you make a good point. just to get your question. our plan is just sort of that to try to
9:21 pm
stay in a safe area to be able to show people what the power of this storm is bringing what it's doing to the city. but we want to be careful of flying debris and all the things that have to be thought about in terms of covering a hurricane like this. but you know, the way people are preparing his standard. but it's different at the same time that it would be for some other storms. given that this one is very severe. >> jack, thank you so much for your live reports for us tonight during conference in prime time and we'll check back with you later please stay safe while you're out there. jacqui, appreciate it. thank you, guys. all right. let's get a look at what the track that hurricane ida is going to take with our meteorologist mabrisa rodriguez. >> yeah. right now it does have sustained winds at a 105 miles per hour. it is a category 2 hurricane and it is going to make its way throughout the northern gulf states and expected to make landfall specifically in the state of louisiana with new orleans. now in that cone of uncertainty remaining as a
9:22 pm
category 2 hurricane with wind speeds anywhere from 90 to upwards of a 110 degrees. so we're going to keep an eye on this hurricane from the kron for weather center. but you could see what the satellite and radar imagery the outer bands of the storm now starting to make its way throughout the northern gulf coast states and that well, defined eye because it is a category 2 hurricane as it churns closer towards louisiana expected to make landfall bringing life threatening storm surge anywhere from 8 to 16 inches of rain for the states of louisiana and mississippi possible tornadoes and also hurricane force winds and that 60 to 70 miles per hour range after it makes landfall continuing as a category 2 hurricane. but let's take a look at our bay area forecast because we're not tracking any marine layer influence out there. in fact, temperatures today very warm and dry air mass and it just obliterated any chance of that low and
9:23 pm
high cloud cover of making it its way into the bay area temperatures today ranging 80's along the coast 90's in triple digit heat. as you major way in london still very foggy hazy sky out there right now with that smoke and ash in temperatures out there right now. 60's along the coast and east bay shoreline with 70's and 80's as you make your way inland. and overnight lows tonight, 50's and 60's. so we are going to cool down some along the coast. thanks to that cool sea breeze influence but daytime highs tomorrow. slight cooling trend. so we it is going to begin on sunday afternoon. this cooling trend that is going to continue through most of this upcoming week, mid 70's for downtown san francisco low 80's for the east bay shoreline and instead of triple digit heat. we're tracking mid-nineties for conquered and even nevada with san jose flirting with the 90's at 88 degrees. but we're leave won't really arrive until tuesday. that's when we're going to notice more of that marine layer presidents and that cool sea breeze.
9:24 pm
finally bring this cooler weather and pushing the smoke and ash away from the bay area. so a few more days to go. but that's why we do have that spare the air alert extended through sunday. >> but still tracking some poor air particles even monday. but tuesday. that's going to be your best bet. so far fresh make this the summer you taught them what it means to serve. the summer of hauling happiness by the ton. and bringing home hardware by the handful. where traditions were passed down on the tailgate. and the only thing more powerful than the feeling was the truck that took you to it. make this the summer of ram. right now, get 0% apr financing, or well-qualified returning lessees can lease the 2021 ram 1500 for $309 a month. ♪ ♪

9:31 pm
region just 3 days left until that deadline to get all americans out there still plenty of work still needed to be to get more perspective on the evacuation process and also. >> the retaliation that the united states has already taken against isis k following the bombings that killed 13 us marines. we're joined live right now by congressman john garamendi, thank you so much for joining us here on kron 4. good to be with you. so the news that was breaking tonight was that americans near the airport will being told to get away from the airport because there was a credible threat that was going to be made. but if they're away from the airport, how are they supposed to evacuate. and is this what is just going to be like for the next couple days. and. and you think that that august 31st deadline is a sticking. >> but the august 31st deadline definitely going to stick the military us beginning to withdraw. now for those americans. and there's very few still left in the country probably has a. i well 24 hours ago there somewhere south of 500 and the
9:32 pm
expectation is that all of those would be evacuated staying away from the airport, basically means don't crowd up against dates. we do know and the last 12 hours that we have successfully brought to the airport by vehicle. 2 families that are that are now on their way to see qatar. so what we do know that they are back away. she has to continue. >> we know they want more than 110,000 people according to the state department have been removed from afghanistan. you still have 3 days is are concerned that someone will be left behind if so, we we've heard several reports of people being held safe houses unable to get past those taliban checkpoints in order to get to the airport. are you concerned or is there still fear that you may not be able to get every american who wants to get out out of afghanistan.
9:33 pm
>> president biden has pledged that every american that wants to get out of afghanistan will get out of they said a moment ago by the end of this state. it's early morning in trouble right now. we would expect most of the remaining americans to be able to get to the airport being escorted to the airport, not having to stand in line outside the gates was so tragic it 2 days ago. so. once military operation shuts down there will continue to be every effort necessary to extract whatever americans may be remaining. do. keep in mind that some americans. up. and to this point have decided that they do not want to leave. now. they may change their mind in the days ahead. and if so, the american government will, i believe successfully evacuate them. we also know that the taliban is
9:34 pm
likely to continue to cooperate in this regard now with regard to afghan citizens that worked with the american over the last 20 years. it becomes somewhat more difficult situation, although i do know yesterday and quite rightly today. we will continue to see. afghans are serious risk being evacuated. partly by the american military flights which will continue for another 2 to 3 days and also by domestic and charter flights flying out of that same airport. >> so isis k took responsibility for the attack that killed the 13 service members at the airport. what do you know about isis k and how big of a threat is. isis k 2 american security. >> well, certainly americans with in afghanistan are at risk of isis k. that's why a state department to the president has been so clear about the risks of crowding
9:35 pm
the gates at the kabul airport. isis k is a very serious problem for afghanistan in the year 2 to 3 years prior to this current situation. isis k conducted horrible horrific bombings. you recall the school that was bob the hospital's most of all isis k terrorist bombings. so isis k is that wrecked to the new. the taliban government that is now attempting to establish itself and the taliban have been at war with isis k for that release. last 2 to 3 years. ryan, one situation in northern. afghanistan. the taliban was assisted by the u.s. military in a fight that they were having with prices, kate. so we're expect that to continue. and you can be sure that the american government, the
9:36 pm
military. we'll carry out biden's promise to seek revenge. nice escape. what they did to those 13 americans and 160 other. most of them afghanistan. >> congressman garamendi, you serve on the house armed services committee along with several other. california representatives as well hearing the news that 4 of these of american military members are from california. what is just can you just put into perspective what that what you're dealing with right now, how you're feeling, you worked very closely with members of the military. have you been able to talk any of the families of the service members. what can you tell us about them. what are they saying tonight. >> i have not had a chance to talk directly to the families. i will tell you that all of us who are you. well, i think all americans and certainly those of on the armed services committee and we do deal very
9:37 pm
directly with the report of the and so, you know, our hearts are broken. this is a tragedy. this is horrible situation. seenif. over the last several years so i know that i and my colleagues have. all too often. worked with gold star families these are the families that have lost one of their children, their and the brother n the. in the various. try to set the united states military has a geisha and not just in afghanistan but around the world. and so it's very, very difficult. it's certainly difficult for those families and for those of who reach out to the families. you could well imagine it is emotional and difficult. now our task is to make sure that the military has what it needs. to conduct its work and also to do it
9:38 pm
safely. and we're in the process of during that this next week. this week finish up the annual national defense authorization act and certainly in that piece of legislation, there will be specific. text and programs to deal with the kind of ongoing terrorists and that will be facing the entire world. some of that from isis k isis is still in syria, although are significantly degraded. and of course, all across a large swath of africa. we have boko and other terrorist organizations and also in asia. so it's a worldwide issue. the real key here is to work with our allies and others who are threatened by terrorist organizations that sprouted up in their countries. it's a big task. it's an ongoing task in that same time. we're going to have to deal with russia and china.
9:39 pm
