Damage estimated at more than 100 billion dollars and above all, nearly 2,000 dead. Today, history seems to want to repeat itself. A new made landfall in the area a few hours ago. Her name: Ida.
The hurricane was classified as Category 4 on the. A hurricane intensity scale which essentially reflects the speed having a direction and an intensity is represented by a vector, the speed vector. Relative speed is the speed of one body relative to another or relative to a benchmark. “Data-image =” https://cdn.futura-sciences.com/buildsv6/images/midioriginal/3/1/ 9 / 319daf63f4_77541_leibniz-dp.jpg “data-url =” https://www.futura-sciences.com/sciences/definitions/physique-vitesse-324/ “data-more =” Read the definition “> that can reach.

More than strong winds
Downgraded to category 1 overnight, Hurricane Ida nevertheless continues to cause concern. The Saffir-Simpson scale does not take into account in particular the speed of movement of the hurricane or the floods that may be caused by the precipitation that accompanies it. Even as, in the context of global warming, scientists say: hurricanes and other storms will be and will bring more and more torrential rains.
As it slows down, Hurricane Ida continues to pullits own storm surge and the humidity present in the region. Result, of have accompanied its violent winds for several hours. One million people are without electricity. And the authorities still recommend that residents stay in the shelter.
