Tracking Hurricane Ida

Travel during hurricane season can be challenging –
especially when a tropical storm like Ida is heading for the United States Gulf
Coast.   Here are a few places to check
out if your travel plans are taking you to, from and through Alabama, Florida,
and Mississippi.


The United States Department of
has a helpful site to assist with tracking so travelers can
keep a watch on the storm’s path and answer Frequently
Asked Questions


Contact your airline or cruise line first during times of
heightened weather concerns.   If your travel isn’t imperative, I would think
about switching your flight to
another time.  (Hurricane season ends at the end of this month and national travel
alerts end December 4, 2009.)


Websites for individual
airlines like Delta,
for example, will post travel alerts and explain how to get up-to-the-minute
alerts via e-mail or mobile devices.


The U.S. Department
of State
also has a very helpful travel
alert website
that should answer your general questions about
hurricanes and where to go and what to do if you find yourself in this kind of
a weather situation. Finally, the National Weather Service also provides
a great resource for travelers during hurricane season – or any season.
