Hurricane Ida: the images of “catastrophic damage” in Louisiana – archyde


Between desolation and relief. If the arrival of Hurricane Ida off Louisiana raised fears of the worst Sunday evening, reviving in particular the terrible memory of Katrina in 2005, the weakening of the phenomenon as it penetrated the lands of Louisiana finally removed the specter of a disaster of similar magnitude.

Still, even having gone from a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale (which has 5) to a tropical storm Monday night, Ida still caused significant damage in Louisiana. “Catastrophic”, even lamented its governor John Bel Edwards to the NBC channel.

So Monday night over a million homes were still without electricity on Monday evening. And on the side of the human toll, at least two people were killed: the first by a fall from a tree in the town of Prairieville and the second while trying to cross a flooded road in New Orleans. A tragedy, therefore, for a Louisiana which is beginning to heal its wounds, and therefore the images of the damage show the violence with which Ida struck the southern United States.
