More than a million people across Louisiana and Mississippi, including much of New Orleans, remained without power after Hurricane Ida tore across the coastal states earlier this week. Damage from the Category 4 storm—one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever hit the region—has been extensive. Emergency response teams have fanned out across communities suffering from the storm surge and subsequent flooding, rescuing hundreds of people. Thousands more remained in shelters. Ida’s “catastrophic intensity” so impacted Louisiana’s power grid that the Entergy utility company said it could be weeks before electricity is fully restored to homes in the storm’s direct path. Read more about how to help at the link in bio. In these photographs from Louisiana: a damaged palm tree in Galliano; floodwaters in LaPlace; an “overwhelmed” Josh Montford rests his head in his hand while going through his flood-damaged home in Jean Lafitte; Marlon Maldonado helps his wife and child into a boat to travel to their flooded home in Barataria; a family without power prepares for dinner in their front yard in Hammond; downed power lines in LaPlace; men help one another pump gas in New Orleans; Jareth Palmisano passes over a vehicle in Jean Lafitte; a destroyed hair salon in Houma; and a statue of the Virgin Mary sits in floodwaters in Jean Lafitte.
