Hurricane Ida: endless line of cars evacuating between Lafayette and Alexandria

This clip shows an endless line of cars evacuating on the I-49 highway between the cities of Lafayette and Alexandria in the U.S. state of Louisiana. Thousands fled due to Ida, a category four hurricane that is expected to make landfall on Sunday evening. The filmer said: "We did a quick turn around to pick up Paw Paw and bring him north and out of Morgan City, Louisiana, before the eye of Ida arrived". The video was filmed yesterday (August 28), at around 2 pm.
