The Aftermath of Ida

Good afternoon! We hope that you are having a wonderful week so far!

On Sunday, Ida made landfall as a Category 4 Hurricane, plaguing Louisiana with flooding and power outages. Incredibly, Ida made landfall on the same day that Hurricane Katrina did back in 2005. Ida reached sustained winds up to 150 miles per hour, making it just shy of reaching Category 5 status. So far, there have been five deaths reported in association with this storm.

Check out the flooding that New Orleans saw! (New York Times)

For our county, rainfall totals reached up to 2.3 inches on Tuesday alone. That is incredible! Did you see the flooding on campus? I sure did!

Have a great rest of your week!
