Hurricane

Historic constructions destroyed, in excess of a million without the need of power as Hurricane Ida pummels Louisiana

Now a ferocious tropical storm churning northwards by the Deep South, Hurricane Ida produced landfall yesterday, August 29, around Port Fourchon in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana, as a Category 4 hurricane with most sustained winds of 150 mph. Shearing roofs off of properties, deluging full towns, reversing the flow of the Mississippi River, and leaving around a million Louisiana people, which includes the entirety of New Orleans, with out energy, the timing of Ida couldn’t be a lot more wretched as it designed landfall on the very same actual working day as Hurricane Katrina did 16 yrs ago.
