New Orleans residents expect devastating storms

Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana, with winds of 240 kilometers per hour, and a potentially “catastrophic” rise in sea levels, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Tens of thousands of people fled the state, fearing for their lives, but by Sunday morning it was too late to escape.

Governor John Bel Edwards said the hurricane could be the strongest in nearly 150 years.

The intensity of the hurricane gained momentum over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
