WATCH: Ginger Zee's family moments from special meeting

Ginger uploaded on her Instagram a shot of the view from her seat on a plane headed to Louisiana, where she would be reporting on the effects of Hurricane Ida.

The entire aisle was empty, and there were only a handful of people aboard the flight, all due to the devastating effects of the natural disaster paired with the lingering pandemic.

In the caption, she wrote, "So you are saying you don't want to go to southeastern Louisiana right at this moment? Pretty empty flight heading into Nola. Impacts begin Sunday morning."

She also added, "The brunt of the surge will be absorbed in the boot of LA south of Nola. Heavy rain and tornadoes could reach out into Mississippi. Very concerning for folks from Houma to Baton Rouge in current track.

"I'll keep you updated as we get closer and see you on @goodmorningamerica."

One commented, "Give my kid a hug. He's hunkered down in his dorm at Tulane. Stay dry," and another said, "Ginger, safe travels and please please stay safe."

Her GMA colleagues also asked her to take care of herself, including Lara Spencer, Jennifer Ashton, and Zoe Miyoko.
