Hurricane Ida chugged toward the Gulf Coast, and despite warnings extending more than 200 miles across several states, residents seemed to take the first Atlantic hurricane to target the U.S. this season in stride.

Authorities said the hurricane weakened early Monday to a Category 1 storm, with 90 mph winds. It could make landfall as early as Tuesday morning, although it was forecast to weaken further. There were no immediate plans Sunday night for mandatory evacuations.
