Hurricane Ida: Flooded Hotel
Hurricane Ida was recorded as the second most intense hurricane to strike the state of Louisiana, only behind Hurricane Katrina, and is tied for the strongest landfall in the state with Hurricane Laura which landed only a year prior. Ida was the second major hurricane of the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Ida formed on August 26th in the Caribbean and struck Louisiana just three days later on August 29, 2021 - the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The residents of South Louisiana were left with very little notice to prepare due to the rapid and dangerous formation of Hurricane Ida.
