On the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Category 4 Hurricane Ida hit the coast of Louisiana at Port Fourchon with maximum sustained winds of 150-mph. Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said “Hurricane Ida is one of the strongest storms to make landfall in Louisiana in modern times.” Hurricane Ida has displaced thousands of families across eastern Louisiana and along the coast of Mississippi.
