Watch: Videos of the devastation caused by Hurricane Ida go viral
Hurricane Ida, one of the most devastating storms to have hit the US continent, wreaked damage in Louisiana.
Although it fell into a tropical storm overnight after making landfall on Sunday, bringing heavy rain and screaming winds, it left a massive swath of destruction in its wake. Several people resorted to social media to discuss the scope of the disaster’s impact and aftermath.
Ida destroyed the region’s power grid, leaving New Orleans and hundreds of thousands of other Louisiana citizens in the dark with no clear schedule for when power would be restored.
The footage of the hurricane astonished netizens, with building roofs blowing away, traffic lights trembling dangerously, and boats flipping on their sides.

Just hours after Hurricane Ida came ashore in Louisiana, the sheriff’s office reported the death of one individual.
President Joe Biden spoke electronically Monday with Bel Edwards and Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves, as well as mayors from cities and parishes hardest hit by Hurricane Ida, to get an update on the storm’s effects and to explore how the federal government might help.
