Ida set to make landfall on 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina

Sunday (August 29) marks 16 years since Hurricane Katrina pounded the Gulf Coast, killing 1,800 people and leaving the city of New Orleans under water. It was one of the deadliest and costliest storms in U.S. history.

Hurricane Ida, which is currently churning its way across the Gulf of Mexico is also expected to make landfall on Sunday. Louisiana’s Governor has characterized Ida as a “very strong” Category 4 storm on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, generating winds of 140 miles per hour (225 kph), heavy downpours and a tidal surge that could plunge much of the Louisiana shoreline under several feet of water.
