SUMMARY: A dangerous storm is expected to make landfall on the coast of Florida tomorrow morning. The storm quickly intensified from a tropical storm to a category two hurricane and is likely to continue intensifying before landfall. The area where the hurricane is expected to make landfall is sparsely populated, but there are some isolated communities in the Big Bend region. The forecast has changed slightly, with the hurricane now expected to make landfall as a category four with winds of 130 miles per hour. As the storm moves further inland, it should gradually weaken. The Carolinas and Georgia may also be affected by the storm.

Idalia will probably inland at around 7 a.m. on Wednesday and is expected to take advantage of those warm gulf water temperatures and continue rapidly.

SUMMARY: Louisiana legislators are considering a bill to legalize concealed carry without a permit for anyone over 18 without a criminal record. Gun safety instructor Isaiah Stewart warns of the dangers of allowing untrained individuals to carry guns, as it could lead to chaos and potential disaster. Proponents argue it levels the playing field with criminals, whereas opponents, like the President of the Metropolitan Crime Commission, believe it will make communities more dangerous and hinder law enforcement efforts. Previous attempts to pass similar bills have failed, sparking a debate on the impact of such legislation on public safety in Louisiana.

“It makes any community and this community, that has that law, more dangerous than it makes it safe,” Rafael Goyeneche said.
