Hurricane Ida leaves New Orleans flooded and damaged

Parts of New Orleans were flooded and damaged by Hurricane Ida on Aug. 30, a day after the violent storm hit southern Louisiana. According to the National Hurricane Center, the hurricane was carrying wind speeds of up to 145 mph or 235 kph when it made landfall on Sunday. The storm weakened to a tropical depression Monday, flooding Mississippi and bringing dangerous weather to Tennessee later in the week. These videos were posted to Instagram by Jordan Michael, who assisted with relief efforts in the city. “In the wake of Hurricane Ida, communities that have the right tools and hearts to serve each other can make a big impact. I am honored to have my campaign resources and staff partner with @algiersproud to develop an innovative emergency hotline that has already handled more than 20,000 text messages for needed help and assistance,” Michael told Storyful.
