Hurricane Ida struck the US state of Louisiana near the port of Fourchon, according to the National Hurricane Control Center (NHC). According to these data, the maximum wind speed during the collapse was 150 m / s (240 km / h).
On the approach to the southeast coast of the United States, Ida increased to the fourth of five hazard categories. Earlier, the state announced the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of people.
Ida hit Louisiana 16 years after Hurricane Katrina, which devastated the Mississippi and Louisiana coasts in 2005. As a result of the rampant elements, 1,800 people died, and it took several years to rebuild New Orleans after the floods. Katrina was assigned category 3, the most destructive hurricane in the history of the United States.
Louisiana has yet to fully recover from two powerful hurricanes that hit the state in 2020.
